Since then quite a few of my sewing friends have also taken it up, so I thought I would get in on the act too.
Last month my lovely, crazy sewing friend Marion(we get in trouble in class for giggling) was over at the Birmingham show and found these fantastic templates that makes the whole E.P.P experience easier. So I thought I would show them to you.
|The different templates. They can be folded in the middle to get another shape.|
|Cut the hexie out as per usual, but look you don't need to do as much sewing.( sorry the photo isn't very sharp, but I think you can still get the idea.)|
|The flip side of the hexie's.|
|Don't they look lovely?|
I really love these reds and it set me thinking, I would love to make a quilt using E.P.P.
However ,although I love red at the moment, I don't have a lot of different fabrics. So this is when I get down on one knee and put a request out to all you lovely bloggers- If you have any RED scraps about 2 1/2"-3" square could I ask you to send them to me OR Judith.She has very kindly said that you can post them to her as most of you will no doubt have her address.
I want to keep the centre hexie a solid red, but the other 6 anything floral, checked. polka dot(my fave), vintage ect. I will connect them together with a white colour path. I think it will look stunning. What do you think?
The templates are from Hungary. Check them out on www.foltvilag.hu
They also have lovely wooden buttons.
Bye for now.
