Combine the simple and traditional technique of English Paper Piecing (EPP) with today's modern fabrics to make this delightful runner for your table or a quilt for a special child. Select your fabric theme, cut rectangles to speed up the hexie piecing and assemble your rows in a zig zag manner.
I hand stitched the hexies and then used machine zig zag stitching to appliqué the rows to the white background to speed things up. Detailed instructions for EPP are included, along with a PRINTABLE PAGE for making your own hexagon papers (on card stock). 7 pages of photos and artwork to make this an easy and fun project. The small runner (also made with 2" hexagons) is included for inspiration, but not patterned.
BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know how to hand stitch and use a sewing machine for finishing.
SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 2" Hexagon; 29" x 40" table runner
The larger quilt shown above uses 75 hexies and finishes to 38" x 52" with a bigger center to accommodate more hexagons. The rows alternate with 7 and 8 hexagons. Be creative - make it any size you wish!

I made a baby quilt from this pattern using the four square blocks. While not my style, the couple is very happy with it and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
I will respond again when I make the quilt. Directions look very well detailed. I have taken in person classes with Debby Kratovil. Debbie is an excellent teacher. Her teaching method is why I chose to purchase this pattern. My cousin chose the Gees Bend quilt for her gift from me.
Love this pattern using Kaffe motifs from the Sunburst fabric. Simple and easy to get, just purchase,... download and print and you are all set. Instructions look simple and straight forward. Communication from seller is excellent as well. Highly recommend!!!
