Hexagon halloween quilt in progress! I haven’t posted any photos lately because I’ve had strange hours getting cross-trained at work and between that I’ve been prepping for an upcoming art show.

This is more of a personal project; here’s some of the progress. I like english paper piecing as a technique because it allows me to work in sections and I can do one seam at a time if I want; it works perfectly with my schedule because I only need to find an extra 10 minutes here and there to chip away at it; It’s really going to be a year-long project. I started it last October and I expect to be finished by this October; this has been my first attempt at english paper piecing, I think it’s a beautiful technique but as far as hand-sewing, it’s labor intensive and time consuming so I can see why this is hardly a popular quilting technique
