Hello and happy Monday! Today I have a fun post I’ve been planning on for a little while. Over the holiday weekend last week, I finally had the chance to finish up the filming for a tutorial on English paper piecing hexagons, and specifically using English paper-pieced hexagons to make the Grandmother’s Flower Garden block. I love working with this technique and hope you’ll enjoy it if you’re brand new…or learn a helpful hint or two even if you’ve been stitching these for awhile!
The technique in my video is the same technique I use in my Flowers for Emma quilt pattern (pattern here in paper and PDF).
And the technique is also the same for these mini hexagons from my Save the Bees quilt.
You’ll also be able to use the technique to make framed hexagon projects! Find the tutorial here.
Watch the video above to learn how-to’s and tips for English paper piecing hexagons and Grandmother’s Flower Garden blocks.
I’ve also added this to my videos page along with my other tutorial videos. I hope you enjoy the video will be of help to you. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll answer them in the comment section. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Thank you so much for the wonderful EPP instruction video. I never had any interest in EPP before I watched your video, but now I realize that it is something I’d really enjoy doing. I can’t wait to get started. Thanks!
Thank you too. I have a few friends that have been doing EPP for years, I’ve been primarily a machine piecer, but I’m interested in trying EPP. I’ve searched YouTube for videos, and yours is one of the easiest videos to follow.
So excited to get started.
Such a cute quilt I love how playful it is but it always takes me forever to make hexagons. EPP and me are not the best friends.

I love your Flowers for Emma quilt. I can’t get the hexie video to load but will keep trying. I love all of your video tutorials so I know I will enjoy this one too.

I love these ideas Sherri. Thank you for the inspiration
I never used to do EPP and suddenly since I do a lot of visiting daddy, visiting grandbabies all over town, sitting in doctor offices with daddy….. I do get a lot of EPP done. I love making different flowers and the ones I do not choose for a particular quilt, I will save for other cute projects
Thank you always for your inspiration

Thank you so much for sharing this! I have learned a great deal about quilting from your blog and look forward to trying something new. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for the EPP tutorial. I have seen other people making quilts using the method, but your Flowers for Emma pattern was the one that really captured my attention. I like the looks of simple quilts and found that one beautiful! I have already ordered the pattern to make one.
