Sewing Quarter Story :: an English Paper Piecing project

I am loving being part of the Sewing Quarter family. Have you managed to catch any shows yet? Just this week the legendary Kaffe Fassett was on the show chatting with Natasha and Anna Maria Horner was on talking with John Scott.

Each and every project that I do involves using new and interesting fabrics. Each and every project produces scraps however if you are anything like me you’ll understand that it’s hard to just bin all those little bits of fabric.

I decided that it might be nice to document my time on the Sewing Quarter and what better way of using up scraps than by making hexies!! My Sewing Quarter Story has begun.

English Paper Piecing is such a lovely craft. The hexies come together satisfyingly fast and it feels good to be making use of fabrics that are either destined for the bin or a lifelong spell in the bottom of the scraps stash.

The best thing about English Paper Piecing is that it’s a totally portable project. These hexies were all made whilst on holiday in Spain even though we went with hand luggage only!

If you have been following me on Instagram you’ll have seen that I’ve made a start on making my Sewing Quarter Story hexies. I’m using #sewingquarterstory if you’d like to follow along.

I’ve made it through most of my Sewing Quarter scraps and have made 52 hexies. There are a few more scraps to work through so I shall keep you posted.

I’m not sure where this little project will take me, but let’s see what starts to take shape.

I’m back on the Sewing Quarter again once the children are back at school in September, but for the mean time I am child wrangling and sewing as and when I can!
