Holidays don’t really leave much spare time for sewing, but it’s nice to have some portable projects to pick up and put down when there is a little free time. This summer I decided that I was going to try some English Paper Piecing for the first time. I found some lovely pre-cut hexagons in pink Liberty fabrics on etsy and decided these would be ideal to try paper piecing with.
My husband recently bought a Silhouette Cameo and he very kindly cut me a stack of paper hexagons ready to start my piecing.
In the few spare moments I’ve had to date I managed to start covering the papers. I’m not sure yet exactly what I’m going to make, although I’m leaning towards butterflies at the moment.
I’m linking up with Work in Progress Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced. Hope to see you there.

I bought the precuts from Alice Caroline Supply on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/Alicecarolinesupply
They are looking lovely. I haven’t seen butterflies made with hexagons before but they would look lovely in these fabrics.
Love the fabrics you got – I’m just finishing up my first EPP project, and since it is a little addicting I’ve started my second! 🙂 Have fun!
oh so pretty! I just cut out some hexies for the first time ever and i have everything ready for when I want to do some… then I realized I do not own a hand sewing needle lol. So, one more purchase before I cam begin lol
I am stopping by from the WIP hop, hop on by if you get the chance 🙂 http://domesticdeficitdisorder.blogspot.com/2013/07/wip-wednesday-july-31st-edition.html
I wish my husband would cut me out some hexagons. Instead it is just me and my scissors. Love your fabric choices so far. Can not wait to see how it all comes together.
What lovely fabrics to work with. You’ll have fun with this project!
great job on the hexies
