I have an addiction for making hexies, especially while travelling. I am often a bored passenger.
I have many of the above flowers made by the English Paper Piecing method and have decided to make them into something. I decided to make a 9-patch mixed with the "grandmothers" flowers in keeping with the floral/traditional look of these little flowers.
There is a great tutorial on how to English Paper Piece here
My flowers are made from 1 3/4" finished hexes and they are made from floral scraps with all centres finished with the same yellow. The flowers were appliquéd onto my background with a # 3 Bernina Stitch, I believe it's a hemming stitch but I like the look of it! See photos.
The backgrounds are 9 1/2" cut (9" finished) from solid white because I intend to show off my quilting once I get the quilt top done.
The 9- patch blocks are made from 2 strip sets each with 3 1/2" cut strips
Enjoy, try and send me photos, I would love to share them!
