XT22 No skills required English Paper Piece a Hexie
No matter what you call themâ€”hexies, hexagons, honeycombâ€”these little six-sided blocks are classic hand-pieceing marvels.
All English Paper Piecing (EPP) requires is a needle, thread, scissors, a few paper templates, and fabric scraps. Diana will get you started. Once you know how to piece the hexies, you'll be ready to go out and explore more shapes and motifs. EPP is an adventure!
Materials fee $5 for paper and fabric hexies, needles, and thread to make a 7-hex flower.
