Sometimes a sewing machine is not easy to take on an airplane. Probably most times. After seeing so many pretty hexies on Instagram, I just had to try learning English Paper Piecing as a technique for on-the-go stitching! I started using scraps, but quickly decided that I wanted to start making flowers for a large quilt. Using a charm square pack of Sunprint 2015, I cut each 5″ charm into four 2.5″ squares that would fit around 2″ hexies (each side is 1″ and point to point is 2″). I used my Cricut to cut out the hexagons from cardstock.
This will be a long-term project that I work on as I travel and otherwise don’t have a sewing machine handy. I look forward to it!
Here are my hexies waiting to be assembled into flowers.
