Show and tell ... English paper piecing rules!

Elaine B is hand stitching pentagons into balls for babies to play with - she has a new grandchild expected in January

Louise's EPP pentagons will be appliqued onto her wall hanging

Pam's very first ever hexagons ... careful, Pam - there may be no turning back!

Noelle is fussy cutting these little beauties - the bobbin the picture will give you an idea of their dainty size.  And note that natty tray for storing and organising them.

This impressive collection is also Noelle's - she gets them out from time to time trying to decide how to put them together - so far they haven't 'told' her how they want that to be ...

A small proportion of Helen's still-growing, but already large hexagon collection (ten years in the making so far) - but she has now decided on a layout, is planning to add in just a few more pink flowers, and will join them all up in no time at all.  

Miriam cleverly made her hexagons into a bright and beautiful purse ...

... with both sides featuring impressive fussy cutting.

Jill has never made a hexagon, and possibly never will ...  the blocks for this large disappearing 4 patch quilt (Sally at Sew Wonderful's online tutorial here) were a cooperative effort with her sister (who has made some very nice hexagon quilts), and is for their mother.  It is off to the long-arm quilter this week before it goes to live by the sea.
