In this months Handmade Magazine - Issue 36 No 11 - you'll find my 'Hexie & a Half' EPP project. It's perfectly suited to the "scrappy" which I love, love, love! 

It's made up of 2 different EPP shapes - the hexagon and the half hexagon, which are then sewn together and appliqued onto a FQ to make the cushion background.

It's a great project for when you're on the go. If you prepare the paper pieces ahead of time, it's very portable. I think I sewed most of the EPP pieces when I was in the car - passenger side of course.

After appliquéing the EPP section to the background (spotty) fabric, I sandwiched a piece of batting to the back and then quilted it with straight lines. I love the texture that the straight line quilting gives the project.

Can I just make a suggestion when it comes to the paper pieces? The packets of hexagon papers usually come in lots of 100. Don't buy the two different paper shapes. You can just cut the required hexagons in half and still have enough to complete the whole project.
