English Paper Piecing

by: Vicki Bellino is where the pattern for my Hexie quilt is from.  

 As you can see I am doing mine in green.  I like the red, but I had the Green Toile that I really love and had not come across a pattern I was willing to use it on. 

Isn't it funny that I have to be willing to use a certain fabric.  Is it strange?  Am I Kookie?  I know I have a fabric affliction, but I have to be willing to use it, I mean it really is just fabric.

 As it turned out keeping the fabrics in this olive color family has been kind of hard but it will be what it is.  I think it will be beautiful when I am done.

I am kind of nervous about the outer edge but I need to expand my skills and this is on a small enough scale that I should be fine.


  1. I think liking the materials you are working with is part of a successful--and beautiful--project. If you don't like them, you don't put in the effort or care.

  2. True, I have some things that have just sat there because I was trying to use what was on hand and it just did not inspire me. You need to show some of Terry's work. I would love to see it!
