Hexie Inspiration!

Ready for some HEXIE inspiration? Below are photos of 2 vintage quilt tops pieced using the traditional English Paper Piecing technique.

English paper piecing is great to do anywhere and if the design is difficult to piece by machine it may not be using the English paper piecing technique. You can get lots of shapes and sizes of paper templates here.

Below is a different idea to make with English paper piecing, Jamie appliqued animals which were made using the English paper piecing technique onto a quilt. How cute is that!
