    A New Method – Foundation Paper Piecing

    I recently designed a new quilt that will need to employ foundation paper piecing for accuracy.

After she […]

    A Hexie Way

    There are many steps and procedures to making an English Paper-Pieced (EPP) project. Since I’m a hexie addict, I thought I’d share a little about my process. **I should mention: I’m a self taught graphic designer and beginning quilter with a passion for hexies and color. While I’m creating, I don’t worry about how I’m “supposed to” […]
