Over the summer holidays, while we were sitting by the pool in Spain on our family holiday, I caught up on some hand sewing. I love English paper piecing and I love hexagons but I wanted to come up with something a bit more modern than the grandmother's flower garden quilts. So I printed out some equilateral triangle paper from incompetech (where you can print out all sorts of shapes, including hexagons, in any size - great for hexagon paper piecing templates), drew up some large hexagons and sub divided them into paper piecing templates to make these babies:
The fabrics are Kona white and a Kona pastels jelly roll from my friend Mandy's UK Kona solids shop and a dolce jelly roll from UK fabric shop Saints & Pinners. The only thing is I still think they're a bit boring so I've sent them to the members of one of my online bees, Busy Bees for them to have a go at making this quilt a bit less boring and samey. Can't wait to see what they come up with. Then I'm going to sash in mid-grey and voila!
