My New Obsession

I first tried my hand at English paper piecing a little more than a year ago, and discovered that I really enjoyed it.

After completing this sampler quilt, for which I did a fair bit of hand piecing, I decided it would be fun to make some Grandmother’s Flower Garden blocks to use up some of the floral prints from my stash.


I’m using purchased hexagon templates, which measure just over 2-1/2″ from side to side. The resulting unit measures about 13″ across — a pretty respectable size.

I have figured out that my stitches can be — should be — very tiny — just one or two threads from each hexagon.


Any more than that, and the stitches are too obvious from the front.
