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 applique 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 is included for inspiration, but not patterned. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know how to hand stitch and use a sewing machine. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 2" Hexagon; 29" x 40" table runner
