At our Modern Quilt Guild meeting for January we had one of our members, Sheri, demonstrated English Paper Piecing. With Hexagons being all the rage, it went over very well. I love that "what's old is new again."
One thing I never considered was all the many shapes you can use English Paper Piecing techniques on. Its not just for hexies any more! Sheri was kind enough to make up a hands-on kit for everyone to give the method a try at the meeting. She provided all of us with a 6 pointed star, based on a diamond shape.
MUG RUG! Its quite masculine, for what it is. I have to say, though, I have yet to see my husband ever grab a biscotti to snack on with this morning coffee. Even though it seems a little more man-ish, this might be my gift for the Wichita Modern Quilt Guild's next Secret Sister Swap.
