English Paper Piecing Triangles


Do you remember this quilt top I started early last year? I was on a roll and then I had the idea to start a magazine....yada, yada, yada...never got back to it. It's Daughter 1's eye. I've been REALLY wanting to get back to it. Yesterday I pulled out all the parts and pieces. There were three chunks made. Yes, this is English Paper Piecing. All by hand.


I decided to try to speed up the process a bit. I decided on the color for about half the remaining pattern. You can see the little swatches that I glued to the pattern. Then I cut a couple of small chunks from the pattern and MACHINE paper pieced them.

Last night I stitched the three large chunks together (by hand). This morning I'll attach the two machine paper pieced chunks to the quilt (by hand). Many more chunks to go!

I'm so excited to have this project underway again - really love it!

It's a momentous day here at The Hexie Blog! Today I'll reach 200,000 blog views! Thank you all for your support!
