English paper piecing...

 When I was in Japan at the Tokyo Quilt show in 2015 I saw this gorgeous quilt and I have been dreaming of it ever since!

Then little while ago I selected some fat quarters for a project I was starting (still a work in progress)! - I really like the mixture of fabrics, they are from a cross section of my fabric collections and as you can see look great together.

Here is a better look at the prints....yummy

I have scraps from the project thats still in progress....actually quite a lot of scraps from the other project...so, I gathered together my tools - fabric glue pen, needle threader, threads and needles.

I am not sure how the Japanese quilter made her quilt but I am doing mine the English paper piecing method.

I am working with a lovely fat quarter pack of yarn dyes: a yarn dye fabric is a woven cotton fabric where the pattern is created within the weave rather than a print on the surface.

I am working with pre-cut papers, 1" hexagons and 1" six pointed stars (otherwise know as diamonds).

By putting two hexagons and 6 of the six pointed stars (diamonds) together you can make them into 2" hexagons, looking good don't you think!

 When you join these newly created hexagons together, they turn into these sweet stars...

I am not sure how big or how long this quilt will take me to make but I am enjoying the process as I find English paper piecing is very very relaxing.

I have lots of yarn dye fabrics available by the yard/m - follow this link to view or as fat quarter bundles
I have lots of different pre-cut English paper shapes - follow this link to view

If your interested in a fat quarter or fat eighth bundle (24 prints) of the Lynette Anderson print fabrics similar to the ones I am working with or a bundle of yarn dyes, please email me, include your address so I can work out postage costs and then I can put a bundle together for you and will send you a Paypal invoice.
