You will need to make the following

36 Light/Medium Hexagons.


Tools Needed

Sewline Fabric Glue Pen

Sewing Needles

Thread


Follow the diagram below to assemble the block. Each block requires 6 hexagons.

Make 6 Blocks

Row 1 - Sew 3 hexagons together

Row 2 - Sew 2 hexagons together

Join these 2 rows

Join 1 hexagon to the top

Use the 3rd image as guide for sewing order



For those of you who are new to EPP the diagrams below show how the papers are bent in order to line up the seams to be sewn.

Picture 1 shows how the rows are placed right sides together. From there you will need to bend the papers to line up each seam. The red arrows show the sewing direction and where previous seams have been sewn. These are the sewing steps 4, 5 6 and 7 from the diagram above.





Joining Parts 1 and 2


Use the diagram below as a guide for joining the 6 Part 2 pieces to the Centre Part 1


When sewing Hexagons in rows you will have to bend the papers just like you did when sewing the part 2 pieces


You can now remove the centre hexagon paper and the next 2 rows of papers to use again.

These rows have been marked with a star in the picture below.

Leave in all the Dark Hexagons and all of the Part 2 papers.



Helpful Tools

Having the right tools can really help your English Paper Piecing journey.

I have cats and I am always worried about them chewing my thread or needles so I don't like to leave them in a pin cushion. Instead I use my Clover Domed Threaded Needle Case to keep my needles safe and easily accessible, that way I can have a whole lot of needles threaded at once


I also use a Clover Needle Threader to thread my needles. This easy to use tool and is worth its weight in gold as it threads your needles quickly and easily, especially when using fine thread.
