Slow Sunday Stitching #26

Here are some 1 1/4" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers

And with all my practice on hexagons, I thought i would take a look at the La Passacaglia that everyone is talking about.  It uses different shapes than hexagons. And it is very much fussy cutting.

The pieces looked quite small, so I asked the people over at Paper Pieces if they could recommend some pieces for this quilt in a larger size. So these are 1 3/4" 72 degree diamonds, with 1 3/4" 36 degree diamonds.  Getting the clear cutting templates with 3/8" seams allows for the fussy cutting so the pieces are almost identical.

This goes much, much slower than the hexagons that I have been practicing on.

Have you been slow stitching on Sunday?
