These are hexie English Paper Piecing tutorials and other posts about EPP. When I first learned about EPP at my very first Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting, I was fully hooked! That night I designed the Squid Quilt and have been hand stitching some sort of project ever since. I love learning new skills and mastering a technique while in the process of making.
As I’ve learned things, I’ve posted them here! The links below are for a couple tutorials, and other information about EPP hexie piecing.
