Hexagon Mania

Everywhere I turn lately I seem to see hexagons so it is safe to assume that there is a definate hexagon craze sweeping the sewing/quilting world.  This is my first attempt the English Paper Piecing and I am officially hooked!.  I am alsways looking for hand project to take home (most of my heavy machine stitching is done here at the shop now).  I have recently revisited embroidery (still love it!), and am always stitching bindings at home.  I am not a big hand appliquer so for this to capture my interest as it has is a miracle.  I will be offering this technique on our fall class schedule and think those of you have haven't yet tried it will be happy to add another technique to your repetoire and another great project to take - a -long.

If you have tried this, let me know what you think and what you are working on with them.  We are waiting for the new release by Martingle Quilts from Grandmother's Garden by Jaynette Huff which is what we will be using in class!
