A Scrappy Hexagon Quilt - Part 1 from Red Pepper Quilts

I had no business starting another English Paper Piecing (EPP) project but I did it anyway. Having a slow sewing project on the go continues to give me so much pleasure, and while I have yet to baste and quilt several of my already completed EPP quilt tops, this one quietly slipped in without any guilt or regret, and has now been added to my pile of finished quilt tops.

I did not intend to take such a long break from blogging and sharing my sewing adventures! But I have enjoyed taking the "work" out of what has been my normal for the last 10 years; instead simply enjoying the making, and enjoying every decision that comes with that, from leisurely choosing fabric, to design, and every single (slow) stitch. No deadlines, no pressure to document.
