Playing with Hexagons
English Paper Piecing (EPP). I like to do that sort of handwork. It's relaxing and there are so many possibilities for using the different patches and shapes. 99% of us begin with hexagons. I came across a little quilt I made in 2017 from blocks I made in 2013! These were class samples and they turned out so cute! This uses a Benartex collection called Knitty Kitty.

Then I fussy cut another kitty in blues.
They sat in a drawer (as class samples they traveled) until my oldest daughter asked for a quilt for a friend's baby. I made something REAL simple. I think the blocks are 14" and they alternate with a cute print in two squares. Easy borders and it's done!

I had made some crochet hook holders, etc with the Knitty Kitty fabrics (I DO NOT knit; I only crochet). Not sure if you remember these. I have since given them to my middle daughter who is a rabid crocheter.
Cute, huh? It's always fun to play with playful prints. Kitties are cute and having those two in the center of the GFG blocks surely made a little child smile.
