After a brief look at English Paper Piecing we will spend the rest of the hour exploring many ways of constructing Hexie and Half-hexie quilts using a variety of settings to avoid those pesky Y-seams. We’ll check out a few speciality rulers and also discuss patterns that use only standard rulers. In addition to the tried and true, some new designs will also be presented fresh from my design wall.
