Slow Sunday Stitching #35

September 2017 is the first month of the 12 month Sue Daley's Round We Go English Paper Pieces Block of the month. Each month you make 4 blocks. I have subscribed through Webfabrics. Each month you get a seed packet with the papers to make 4 identical blocks, changing out the fabrics.

While I have been sewing hexagons, this is a new challenge with all the different shapes: half hexagons, diamonds, and this outer curve that I'm still trying to figure out.

And here is my first block:



Meanwhile, I continue to sew my vast collection of thread basted hexagons into flowers. I'm still working through my bag of 1 1/8" hexagons, that I based from a batik jelly roll, so I got 40 fabrics and made 6 x 1" hexagons and 6 x 1 1/8" hexagons, along with some 1/2" hexagons - I just couldn't waste the bits of fabric between the large hexagons on the jelly roll!

To celebrate the first day of fall, here are some fall reds.   I've been playing with getting some exciting fabrics for the centers, in some cases from large florals, fancy cutting.

Here are some 1 1/8" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers. On these, I tried to provide some print that mimics a flower center.

Here are some 1 1/8" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers. I've been trying to fussy cut centers from scraps.



Do you fussy cut your fabrics for EPP ?

Slow Sunday Stitching #31

Here are some 1 1/4" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers
I'm having fun choosing the centers for these hexi flowers.

And here are a couple of more 1 1/4" hexi flowers along with a couple of 1/2" hexi flowers.


To give an indication of scale, here is the entire 1/2" hexi flower covering the center hexagon in a 1 1/4" hexi flower.
This gives me some new design ideas, in layering of the hexagons.

Slow Sunday Stitching #29

Here are four 3/4" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers with a 1" on the right:

While these look similar in size, these are actually 1 1/4" hexagons.

Instead of taking photographs, this week I tried putting these hexagons on the scanner and taking an 11x17 scan (actually an A3 scan, which is 11.7" x 16.5").
