Someone said they were cutting out hexagons... found this site you can cut out more than one at a time.

Ladies,

I love all your hexies.

I'm crap at EPP so I do mine by regular hand piecing. I started a project a few years ago but the fabric was bleeding as I sewed (discoloured my fingers).

I'm gathering fabric scraps in preparation for making the "Insanity Quilt". The thing has 10,000 pieces!

Check out the hexagon projects in this photo stream.

Kris,

It looks like its going to be a group project doing a sampler quilt of different EPP shapes i had the idea yesterday (that taxed my brain so much i had to lay down) some of the girls said they were in on the idea, so it should be fun or chaos or both. Im on holiday from wednesday so i will start when i come back.

lots of love

Francesxx
