Above are some examples of different size hexagons.
Paper pieces are usually measured by the length of the side of the hexagon.
Red flowers - 1"
piecing in progress underneath - 1/2"
Tiny green - 1/4"
So if you are crazy enough, join me on the quest to save those tiny scraps.
Maybe I will have this done by the time you are coming to visit me in the nursing home ;)
I do like English paper piecing.
I know some despise it, but it is a great take-along project and can be done while watching TV.
Hexagons were one of the first projects that led me to quilting.
Above is one of my long-term projects I work on from time to time, made from 1" hexagons.
I cut all the paper pieces for this quilt out by hand because I was trying to be cheap, but you can buy them here: Paper Pieces - and I probaby will from now on.
All that cutting can be hard on your hands.
Another long term project.
All fabrics from charm packs by Tula Pink.
2" hexagons are a good size for using with charm pack squares.
Another fun project below, English paper pieced soccer balls for X.
Made with 1" hexagons and pentagons!
Do you love hexagons?
Have a good weekend!
