⬡⬡⬡ 52 NEW ways to sew a hexagon quilt (+ giveaway!) ⬡⬡⬡

Hooray for MORE hexagons from best-selling author Katja Marek!

The New Hexagon 2

Katja is back with 52 new ways to play with hexagon shapes in The New Hexagon 2. Using her efficient, accurate methods for English paper piecing (EPP), Katja shares streamlined how-to techniques such as basting with glue and using precut paper templates.

From The New Hexagon 2

Katja’s also expanded the possibilities by including not just one, but two different block sizes. Choose from:

  • 14 twelve-inch blocks
  • 38 six-inch blocks
  • 5 pretty projects to show off the blocks you create!

We asked Katja a few questions about her latest book and about her creative life—read on for her answers. (And don’t miss the announcement about a special quilt-along with Katja at the bottom of this post!)


Katja MarekStitch This!: You’re a prolific designer, and your books on English paper piecing have really made a splash! What inspired you to write a sequel to the best seller The New Hexagon?

Katja: There were still so many hex-abilities left to explore, even after the first 52 blocks in The New Hexagon and 366 more blocks in The New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar. There are still possibilities! Also, I’ve learned some new things over the five years since The New Hexagon was published. It seemed like a great time to share some new tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way.

ST!: What’s your designing process like—and where do you find your inspiration? 

Hexagon starKatja: I find I’m able to visualize a concept very well. I sleep with pencil and paper beside my bed. Often my brain doesn’t want to be quiet at night, and I want to capture an idea so I can play with it some more. I’ll doodle random ideas onto graph paper (in the case of hexagons, I use triangle graph paper) and see how they play together. Once a concept becomes more cohesive, I continue on paper or on the computer. Sometimes I’ll sew a small test piece to see how what I envision translates to fabric.

Inspiration is everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE. I find inspiration in nature, in life, in songs, in books, in patterns in the sand, a wave, the clouds . . . literally everywhere.

ST!: Tell us more about your approach to English paper piecing—what makes it so unique?

Katja: For starters, I believe in NO RULES. In a class, just like in my books, I show people what has worked well for me, but I’m open to other ideas. Part of that belief led me to trying non-traditional techniques, the biggest of which is glue basting. Glue basting allows me to expedite the basting process and get to the sewing much faster.


Example of Katja’s how-to from the book

ST!: Do you have a favorite block or quilt from The New Hexagon 2?

Katja: Wow, that’s a tough question, I love different blocks and projects for different reasons. In Block 2: Carrie or Block 3: Lissa, I absolutely LOVE the arrows and the rainbow colors—but then what’s not to love about rainbows? We’ve seen arrows in many square and rectangular blocks, so why not in hexagon blocks? I also like to look for hidden elements that I can use to draw attention to an area, such as a hidden heart that pops with color and value in Block 10: Sheryl.

As for favorite projects? In Explore the Stars, individual blocks are allowed to shine.

In Starburst, color and flow between shapes allowed me to create a millefiori-style look.

But probably my favorite project is Argyle. This two-color quilt uses many of the blocks to create the stunning argyle design.

ST!: What’s inspiring you right now?

Katja: I’m playing around with some different shapes at the moment, and I’m also machine piecing things that are traditionally thought to be restricted to English Paper Piecing. I’m known for EPP, but my ideas extend beyond that! Inspiration is everywhere around us, and I have no trouble coming up with multiple new things to try. Time is my biggest battle. There’s just not enough time to do everything that’s in my head.

ST!: What’s on your sewing table right now?

Katja: Since I’m on the road right now, enjoying a mother-daughter holiday in the Maritime Provinces of Canada, I’ll show you what I’ve brought along. First is a sample for my quilt shop, Katja’s Quilt Shoppe in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada—a soccer-ball quilt using black-on-white and white-on-black prints.

The second project consists of samples for my Take & Teach class coming up in Houston, Texas, for Fall International Quilt Market.

At home I’ve been working on Quilty Stars patterns by Emily Dennis of Quilty Love.

ST!: What’s your #1 tip for beginning quilters?

Katja: Just start! Don’t stress about all the things you don’t know yet; none of us knew anything at the beginning. Everyone has to start somewhere, and only by doing will you learn.


QAL ALERT! Join Katja in January 2020 to make a one-of-a-kind quilt designed with blocks featured in The New Hexagon 2—follow Katja’s “Quilt with Me” Facebook page for all the details as they emerge!

    —Barbara Noel on November 11, 2019
  • I did one small project using EPP. I have others on my “list”, but I’d have to say I “haven’t enrolled yet”!

    —Pat on November 11, 2019
  • Barely started. This is one technique I thought I would never touch, but I got started last summer, and find it very calming and relaxing. I also love that it is easy to grab a small bag and travel with it.

    —Stephanie on November 11, 2019
  • I have a EPP minor but it has been a long time! I still have many UFO’s probably, because I love the idea of EPP. This book is an inspiration to make a quilt for my husband as he loves hexagon quilts as much as I do and has been waiting a long while for his quilt 🙂

    —Shines on November 11, 2019
  • Haven’t enrolled in the EPP school yet. Is it time?

    —Crystal Conrad-Kauffman on November 11, 2019
  • I have always loved hand sewing and find the precision of English Paper Piecing very appealing. I’m currently working on an EPP project with diamonds and take this project along on trips due its portability. I would consider myself an EPP minor, but I hope to increase my skills by continuing to challenge myself with new projects.

    —Pam Pittman on November 11, 2019
  • I definitely love EPP but am not super great at it. Katja is so creative and I so appreciate her different perspective. I am excited about this book!

    —Alice on November 11, 2019
  • I am not very good with any paper piecing projects. If EPP can help making Hexagon quilts I will try it, I love octagons and hexagons.Perhaps the book 52-new-ways-to-sew-a-hexagon-quilt will help.

    —Bev Bolduc Aldridge on November 11, 2019
  • EPP Minor. This book might just move up a notch! Thanks for the give away.

    —louise haddon on November 11, 2019

    —Ginny S. on November 11, 2019
  • EPP minor – I’ve just looked at how beautiful paper piecing and been afraid to start a big hand piecing project with little pieces!. . . but I’m willing to add to my quilt making skills and give it a try.

    —Debbie Howell on November 11, 2019
  • I have not tried it yet, but would love to learn from one of the masters.

    —jo c on November 11, 2019
  • EPP Minor for sure. I have one sad little self-pieced project and an entire stack of my great-great grandma’s perfect EPP blocks. I need to improve my skills so they don’t go to waste!

    —Susan M Putman on November 11, 2019
  • My skills are mediocre. Need more practice.

    —Christi on November 11, 2019

The book looks like it would be a great starting point that would keep you inspired all the way through the difficulties of a first project. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • I love EPP and have finished Grandmother’s Flower Garden and am working on Patchwork of the Cross and The New Hexagon quilt from Katja’s first book. I don’t consider myself an expert but I think am more than a minor. Thanks for the opportunity to win The New Hexagon 2.

    —Carlene Jewett on November 11, 2019
  • EPP minor … I konw the basics but that’s it.

    —Hildy on November 11, 2019
  • I minor in English paper piecing. I have done a mariners compass that way only because I knew I would mess it up if I didn’t. There are several blocks I would like to try in EPP but I want/need to finish what is on my table first. That’s so hard to do because my mind has other ideas that want attention! I have some antique silk hexagon blocks to stitch together that are done with newsprint as the paper. I plan to leave it in the blocks but have not decided how to layout the blocks (some are starting to separate). I want to put it under glass when I finally finish it.

    —Liz on November 11, 2019
  • Take EPP with me when I will have to wait, like a doctor visit. Not at all experienced at it, but like to hand sew.

    —Flo on November 11, 2019
  • I’m an EPP minor. Currently working on Hex-Plosion and loving it!

    —Kelly Jones on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t tried EPP yet.

    —Christine Zofkie on November 11, 2019
  • EPP major!

    —Susan K. on November 11, 2019
  • Major! Queen sized quilt of 1″ hexies…95% complete!

    —Melody Lutz on November 11, 2019
  • I guess I’m a minor. I’ve done a few small EPP projects, like a table runner, and have grandiose ideas to do something big.

    —pennyd on November 11, 2019
  • I’ve done a little bit of EPP, but I’d like to do more, especially try some fussy cutting.

    —Annie on November 11, 2019
  • I am an adventurous beginner in EPP, I have a few ziplock bags filled with 1.5″ hexies to be turned into a grandmother’s flower garden pillow as soon as I have enough.

    —Susan on November 11, 2019
  • EPP minor, I’ve sewn hexies so far, a very enjoyable process!

    Denise L. on November 11, 2019
  • EPP minor

    —Cynthia Harwell on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t tried EPP, yet, but several of my friends rave about it. Would love to have Katja’s book to push me into giving it a try.

    —Linda B on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t tried EPP yet, but I find the concept intriguing. This book is very enticing!

    —Virginia in AK on November 11, 2019
  • definitely a minor!

    —Jody on November 11, 2019
  • I tried EPP only one time, making a sample block of the hexagon shaped Grandmother’s Flower Garden. That block is often referred to as: "the most started, but least finished" quilt design. Now I know why is has that reputation…

    —Teri N on November 11, 2019
  • I’m a major EPP. Have completed a queen hexagon top and finished several wall hangings using different EPP shapes and designs. Love it. Would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

    —Jean K. on November 11, 2019
  • I’m an "EPP Minor" meaning I know and have tried all the techniques, follow Katja’s QALs and have made a hexie flower or two but have yet to make that "Wow, look what I made!" project yet. Of course that said (and in the great tradition of quilting), I’ve already showed a few and getting ready to teach a group of some "haven’t enrolled yets" how to do EPP with a goal to make a group project. I look forward to seeing where it takes us all!

    Vivian B. on November 11, 2019
  • Have never done EPP. WOW! These quilts are fabulous.

    —Geri on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t enrolled yet

    —Sylvia on November 11, 2019
  • I’m an EPP minor – I know the basics and have sewn a few blocks, but haven’t finished an entire project yet! Love the cover quilt of Katja’s book!!

    —Gwen Wehner on November 11, 2019
  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE EPP!! I’ve done it for years. Love Hexagons so much that I designed a vinyl art of hexagons and put it on the back window of my new car.

    —Xina Crawford on November 11, 2019
  • Definitely EPP minor. I’ve done several flowers for a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt but I never went any further with it. I love the idea of all that handwork, and the precision is a bonus too. Thanks for the chance to win! This looks like a very inspiring book.

    —Jane Stephens on November 11, 2019
  • I want to say I’m a whiz at EPP, but I’m currently working on some hexies from the New Hexagons perpetual calendar and they are certainly challenging my skills! So satisfying when it all comes together – and addictive. LOL!

    —Liz W on November 11, 2019
  • I am a beginner but would love to learn more

    —Rebecca Wright on November 11, 2019
  • EPP beginner. Love the Argyle- would love to attempt it

    —Jean on November 11, 2019
  • I love to do hand piecing. Have tried EPP but really would rather hand piece the traditional way. I absolutely love the "Argyle" quilt on the front cover of your new book!

    —Rose Haury on November 11, 2019
  • I am new to this technique and very anxious to learn all the tips. It is such beautiful work.

    —Deborah Urich on November 11, 2019
  • I would love to explore this book. I’m a novice. I have only made one piece from the hexagons, a table runner. I love the English Paper Piecing as I have been without a sewing machine for some time and the EPP makes things easier as it’s handwork. The variations shown are very interesting.

    —Alice Parcel on November 11, 2019
  • I’m a newbie at English paper piecing. I’ve attempted it a few times but have never completed a project.

    —Judith Martinez on November 11, 2019
  • Currently minoring in EPP with plans for a major eventually. 😉

    —Mindy on November 11, 2019
  • My skills are medium. I have not tried anything very difficult yet, but love EPP. This book looks like a good one to inspire to keep going with it.

    —Kay Ann McCaffery on November 11, 2019
  • I have worked on EPP in miniature. In the world of big , I am a neophyte. Loved seeing these fresh possibilities so my interest has been tweeked.

    —Dorothy Snow on November 11, 2019
  • I really, really, REALLY want to win this free book. Hexies are my first love. They were the first quilt I became obsessed with, that my grandmother made. They were the first quilt I ever made. I’d love to get started making the next generation hexie. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Rhonda Caudill on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t enrolled yet! but would love to try!

    —Marti Meadows on November 11, 2019

    —lee on November 11, 2019
  • I love Katja’s books and quiltalongs. My EPP skills are somewhere between beginning and intermediate. I’m still working on Millefiore. I’d love to win The New Hexagon II

    —Karen on November 11, 2019
  • I love handwork, and EPP is fun and highly addictive!

    —Pam N. on November 11, 2019
  • EPP – limited experience. Only did one quilt. Started out to be Queen/Full size, finished as a Crib quilt. I guess that is better than a pillow.

    —Lovie Ball on November 11, 2019
  • EPP Minor. I admire more than I have had a chance to start! I have all the equipment…..now to find the time. This book looks awesome and inspiring!

    —Patty F. on November 11, 2019
  • I love to sit and EPP. It is such an easy project to haul around anywhere, especially camping. I have completed 3 projects, with one still in progress (my Millie is a slow but steady). Love Katja’ s work.

    —Paula Winters on November 11, 2019
  • I love EPP. I have throughly enjoyed Katja’s previous publications and am very excited about this new one. I would consider myself a EPP minor. Though I have done a lot of EPP, especially with hexagons, there is so much more I want to explore. Thanks for sharing.

    —Audrey on November 11, 2019
  • I would have to say that my EPP skills are minor. I have only made solid hexagons and put them together in a grandmother’s flower garden pattern. I have a whole shoebox full of them, but I haven’t figured out what I am going to do with them!

    Barbara Johnson on November 11, 2019
  • I love the quilt on the cover, I haven’t tried much EPP yet but want to.

    —Jackie Lewis on November 11, 2019
  • I’m a beginner in terms of total experience with EPP. Understand it all well enough, but aging fingers and several hand surgeries limit my abilities to stitch by hand. Katja’s blocks are so well designed and offer a range of complexity and/or difficulty, so that I can easily find something to do.

    —Brenda on November 11, 2019
  • Between minor and major, but just love epp, it,s my take on a road trip project every time because it,s so portable, also so relaxing, just love it and would love a chance to win this great book

    —Wilma smith on November 11, 2019
  • I am just starting to play around with Hexagons. Have Katja first book and also another book. Have been to a demo on Hexagons so am ready to get my big toe wet.

    —Betty on November 11, 2019
  • I love hexagons! But other techniques intrude, so maybe I’ll do the quilt along

    —bunny hand on November 11, 2019
  • EPP Major – lovey epp, always have a project on the go.

    —Kerry Grose on November 11, 2019

    —Susie Merrill on November 11, 2019

    —Melissa Gerber on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t enrolled yet. But really want to get started.

    —MaryAnn Mairs on November 11, 2019
  • It was about 5 years ago that I first ordered a how to book on English Paper Piecing and I have yet to crack it open. Maybe when I retire I will have more time. 🙂

    —Kathy Kranenburg on November 11, 2019
  • I made a queen sized quilt top and it is still waiting to be quilted. The book looks intriguing.

    —Kathy A on November 11, 2019
  • I have just begun to try my hand at epp. I understand the technique, I just have too many other projects on my plate right now to devote the time.

    —Karen A on November 11, 2019
  • Oh-How fun!

    —Cyndi Duffin on November 11, 2019
  • I have not used the EPP technique in my quilting but think it would be a good thing to know how to do.

    —Jackie Wisherd on November 11, 2019
  • EPP major. I LOVE Hexagon quilts. I have made several in all different sizes and never tire of dreaming about more!!! I look at my Hexie perpetual calendar everyday and am inspired!

    —Kathy Timmons on November 11, 2019
  • Minor+ I’ve done several hexies, made them into flowers and they are just sitting around waiting for inspiration to hit.

    —Linda Lee Ahn on November 11, 2019
  • I haven’t even enrolled yet! Not for lack of wanting to…it’s just that EPP is so daunting! BUT, one of my prized possessions is a "Grandmother’s Flower Garden" quilt that my grandmother made especially for me…all by hand!

    —Teri D. Gailey on November 11, 2019
  • EPP minor – VERY minor – I’ve made a set of mug rugs and a few blocks using this method which is great for accuracy.

    —Brenda C on November 11, 2019
  • I consider myself a major EPP. I have made 2 grandmother flower gardens & one called Medallion. My grandmother taught me and I grew up with a grandmother flower garden on my bed that she made for me.

    —Judy Sanders on November 11, 2019
  • I’d probably rate myself as an EPP minor, I’d consider major one whose working on a La Passacaglia quilt! I’d love to try any of the new quilts in this book

    —Linda Bick on November 11, 2019
  • I think major , I’ve made the millifiore quilt, and another QAL with Katja. Love EPP . Thanks for the chance.

    —Hanke Fijnvandraat on November 11, 2019
  • Until very recently I would have said I had been an EPP Major for years. But then I joined a BOM and suddenly realised that, aside from Hexagons and Diamonds, I had barely scraped the surface of EPP! Definitely in the Minors!

    It turns out I’m also ‘Old School’ those people that just love thread basting and don’t hold with that newfangle gluing concept.

    This BOM has forced out of my comfort zone, and I’m having to learn how to do things all over again. It’s not always fun, and it’s not always pretty, but I’m getting there 😀

    —Kayt Deans on November 11, 2019
  • I started a Grandma’s Flower Garden two years
    ago while on a cruise.(perfect take along project!)
    Every once in a while I pick it up and work on it.
    Working on putting together the rows.

    —Susan Knoll on November 11, 2019
  • I would be an EPP minor. I have made a few flowers with hexagons but that it it!

    —Sandy Allen on November 11, 2019
  • I have NO experience with EPP but am curious because I read a lot about it in the quilting magazines. It seems every issue has projects using the technique.

    —Deena Mack on November 11, 2019
  • I adore the results of EPP but have not yet tried it. Lack of patience and older eyes may eliminate it as a possibility but I plan to try soon.

    —Betty Duffy on November 11, 2019
  • I’m an EPP minor, but I find the whole process so relaxing.

    I LOVE Katja’s work.

    —Joan Baylor on November 11, 2019

  • oh my goodness. ya had me at LIME Green!! my favourite colour of all time for fabrics that make beautiful hexies. my next favourite is Teal. how crazy is it that both those make that gorgeous design on the cover. i had to force myself not to just scroll past Katjas answers to see all the pix on this page. that was a fascinating read. thanks, Katja for letting us in on your mind gymnastics.
    2020 QAL is going to blow some minds and will be fascinating to see what folks come up with in the various colours. woot!!

    —jeanne on November 11, 2019
  • me again…meant to add if anyone here wants to get stuck into Katjas designs, join the group on Facebook. lots of folks there with a wide variety of experience, knowledge and great ideas with pix to give you inspiration if you need anymore. we have lots of fun there. join us and if you have questions….just ask and someone will have just the right answer that makes sense to you.
    oh and i’ve been EPP’n for a long time now but Katjas designs keep me on my toes for sure. hexies are my favourite shape and all the other shapes that can make a hexie always fascinate me. its never-ending joy and delight. 🙂

    —jeanne on November 11, 2019

  • Well…. about 4 years ago, I had my twin granddaughters for a quilting weekend.. they have an obsession with fabric.. I showed them hexies one night… now, get this .. the next morning at close to 7 am… someone came into my bedroom and whispered……. Gramma.. can I start another hexie… so… an EPPiecer was born… well.. two of them. They now have a bigger stash than a lot of quilters. Oh.. me… still a beginner… Katja I love the colors in the Argyle block. And I would love to get your book… and I will drive up to your shoppe to get it autographed !!

    —Grace MacDonald on November 11, 2019

    —Lois Stoltenberg on November 12, 2019
  • Consider myself an EPP major . . I have been doing it for well over 40 years . . and hexies are my first and enduring love and Katja’s hexies have been the best thing to happen in a long time. Made all the hexies in Book 1, some from the calendar and then started inventing my own . . . so may ways to reinterpret the shape . . . would love to try those in book 2 too :0)

    —Riva Mollison on November 12, 2019

    —Kaye Temanson on November 12, 2019
  • I am so excited about Katja’s new book and I cannot wait to get started on Argyle. I am currently working on my minor in EPP, but hope to major in it soon. I have a millifiore in progress right now and I love Katja’s techniques.

    —Nikki Mundt on November 12, 2019
  • I made Katja’s Hexplosion with her hexies. Not nearly as gorgeous as hers but still beautiful. This pattern is stunning and will assuredly be fun to do and very rewarding. Thank you for sharing your talent and vision with us.

    —Sandy Petersen on November 12, 2019

  • I rate my epp skill as minor. I feel like practice makes perfect. I made a wall hanging from the new Hexy book. Found I could use the templates for my own ideas & I’m only limited by my experience & imagination. I really like paper piecing. It makes my work more precise. Thank you

    —Alice flesher on November 12, 2019

  • I think I’m also a minor: so far I’ve done traditional hexies with vintage fabric bought on ebay, and that’s about it! BUT using paper punches on all that card stock that comes in the mail makes perfect templates!

    —Sharon S on November 12, 2019
  • I just finished the first 52 hexagons after see the first book and feel in love. Can’t wait to try the next 52 blocks. I have only completed on EPP project of course it was 67 blocks from the new hexagon book enlarged to 133%. I still consider myself a minor. Still learning

  • My EPP skills are in the beginner’s stage.

    —Allison Evrard on November 12, 2019
  • I have done a few epp projects and am currently on block 10 from The New Hexagon book. I ordered the paper pieces and am using two different Kaffe fabrics with a few coordinating scraps. I love the portability of the project and the creative challenge of making each block different by using kaleidoscope fussy cutting. Normally I’m easily bored part way into a project but not this one.

    —Catherine on November 12, 2019
  • Have done a lot of EPP, but haven’t actually finished too many projects yet! Loved The New Hexagon which got me started so can’t wait to get Book 2.

    —WordNerd on November 13, 2019

    —Judi Reiss on November 13, 2019
  • I would say I am an EPP major and really got hooked when Katja’s first book came out. I can’t wait to see her new book. When I look at fabric in the quilt shop now… I’m always thinking this would be great to fussy cut for EPP!! I think I’m addicted… actually I know I am!!!!!

    —Laurel on November 13, 2019
  • I really enjoyed the 1st book and can’t wait to get to the 2nd book. Such great inspiration in the first, can only imagine what the 2nd one has for us EPP fans.

I have been quilting for over 30 years, have wanted to try EPP but have been shy. I have purchased Katja’s book and papers. Still just a little intimidated for some reason. Guess a new book would make me ready to JUMP IN.

    —Pamela Barnes on November 13, 2019

  • Have been a huge fan since book 1! Would love to win!

    —Kimberly Harris on November 14, 2019
  • Have to edit my answer…didn’t see the question! I am an EPP "other" – I have completed 9 "epp" quilts, but have sewn them all on the machine, traditional right sides together style! Started with the New Hexagon quilt a long, and haven’t stopped since!

    —Kimberly Harris on November 14, 2019
  • EPP less than minor. Many false starts. I don’t enjoy the technique so switch to hand piecing. I enjoyed Katja’s first book and sew along. Would love to own this new book as well.

    —Kris on November 14, 2019
  • In between the two. Have done a lot, but still have a lot to learn! Would love to win this book!

    —Mary Burn on November 15, 2019
  • I have just starte EPP and so I have lots to learn. What I have done has been so much fun and more addicting than I could have imagined. I love to work on them in the evenings while watching TV or spending time with family.

    —Nancy McC on November 15, 2019
  • I love EPP. It’s the perfect take along project! This book looks like it will be great fun!

    —Barbaraben on November 15, 2019
  • I’d have to say I am a minor. I’ve started one of those Passacaglia quilts, think I finished 4 blocks of about 5000!, just kidding, and put it away for awhile. Some points are challenging but the hexies are easy enough. Thanks!

    —Lisa Timmer on November 15, 2019

  • I am a minor in EPP. Have started a few hexagons, but very good at it.

    —Sylvia L on November 15, 2019
  • I love that Katya says that we were all beginners in quilting, just start.
    I need that encouragement daily as I am terrified of doing it wrong.
    Thank you for saying that
    Also the hexagons and fabric choices are wonderful.

    —Ann Rippel on November 15, 2019

    —Nancy Page on November 15, 2019
  • I have never tried it, but looking at the samples had me picturing many ways I would like to try this technique. Thank you for the inspiration.

    —B. A. Fellers on November 15, 2019
  • I am a novice. First project was with 2″ hexies, second is with 1″ hexies. My goal is to tackle 1/4″, just because I like miniatures. Beautiful book…I might just have to change my plan. Seriously!!

    —Debbie Hewitt on November 15, 2019

    —Colleen on November 15, 2019
  • I have completed 2 king sized quilts using EPP hexies…so I guess you could say I have intermediate skills. Working on a large, long-term non-hexie project right now!
    Thanks & Quilty Huggs!

    —Jacqueline V on November 15, 2019
  • I have not done much paper piecing, but these designs are beautiful!

    —Tamara on November 15, 2019
  • I consider my EPP skills to be as you say, "‘major". I have only been sewing using the EPP method for a few years, but I find it very easy and a great way to relax in the evening! I designed my own pattern earlier this year, and hope to have it finished by the end of December!

    —Peggy Ramm on November 17, 2019
  • I’m a minor. I have made a baby quilt, but waiting for the right baby to come along to give it to! I am working on a flower garden quilt, but it is not something I can do all the time, so it has been in progress for 3 years! I think that makes me a minor. I’m very interested in the diamond shapes being put together to make a hexagon……..need to see the book.

    —Madeline Wallace on November 17, 2019
