English Paper-piecing

March 27th, 2008 | Posted by Emma in All | Quilting

November 20, 2007, Sharon Meisenheimer gave a presentation to the Des Moines Area Quilter’s Guild Newcomers group on the topic of English paper-piecing. She was wonderful and the quilts she showed were truly amazing! I had fun with the little project we tried and have done a few more English paper-pieced projects since.

The first project was one for the center of a larger quilt. The hexagons were 1 1/2″.


Then I tried a smaller version, which I will finish as a small framed piece, like in Quilt magazine April/May 2008 called “Nana’s Flower Patch”. These hexagons were only 3/4″, but I don’t think it was significantly faster!
