Inspired by my two sisters who are working on Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilts, I decided to give English paper piecing a whirl. The little hexagons makes a great take-along project. The pieces are small and all the supplies can fit into a purse-sized tin.
I decided to put my spin on this classic by stitching it in bright hand-dyed fabrics. Unfortunately, I typically use a very tightly woven fabric for my hand-dyes. The tight weave takes the dye very well and the colors are very vivid. However, the tight weave means it is more difficult to hand stitch. I haven’t dyed fabric in a while…now I have my excuse!
