Not really into the whole EPP thing. I would rather cut them out then pencil mark my 1/4 inch seam and just sew. The smaller ones are harder to do that way. I have seen some EPP small ones that didn't stay together as well as those done without. I have been taking them with me when I go to doctor appts or anywhere I am going to have to sit a bit. I have lots of remarks from other people. I was selling raffle tickets outside a quilt shop for Shop Hop and one lady pulled up a chair and watched everything I did. Then went back in the quilt shop and got a templet and material and came back out and got directions on how to start. I really enjoyed it. She hadn't tried the pattern before because it looked so difficult with all the y seams. But after watching me do a couple of blocks, she was anxious to go home and start one. I wish I had gotten her email to see how she did.
Hi, I've heard of a technique where you do just the 2 innermost sides, then tunnel to the next hexagon and repeat. When you get back to starting hex, quilt the remaining 4 sides, tunnel and repeat.
