English paper piecing

This little forest of pins is holding down all my hexagon flowers which have now been basted on to their papers and are awaiting whip stitching together.

It didn't take too long to do and was not as tedious as I thought it would be.  In fact, I can (almost) see how the process could become addictive.

I think the next stage, the joining together of each little hexagon, might take a little longer to do because my stitching will have to be much more precise.  In the meantime, the latest Homespun magazine has arrived and, while I originally thought that it would not matter if I did not finish each block every month, I now feel strangely compelled to keep up with each issue.
