According to my Instagram feed I’ve these hexies pieced, and unfinished, since June of 2014. Oops.
This was my first English Paper Piecing project and I worked on it sporadically for a year.
Note to self: Hole punch the paper – it’s much easier to remove.
The back looked a mess.

This was hand pieced and I originally wanted to hand quilt it. Hand quilting is just plain daunting to me (even on something this small). Since it’s been sitting around for over a year I decided to machine quilt.
The backing is a vintage sheet cut from my stash.
I used a charm pack cut into 2.5″ squares. My hexagon sides are 1″ and stitched together it’s about a 19″ square, trimmed.
This is the first time I’ve added flange and I’m in love. Will definitely be doing this on regular quilts in the future.

Now that I know exactly what I can get out of a charm pack, I’ll be doing this again. I love mini quilts and use them as table toppers, under centerpieces and as wall hangings.
