Let us embark on a very simple stitching project with intention and thoughtfulness. This project is designed for the absolute beginner and is small in scale. Although it could also lead to more ambitious undertakings, or even go on to create a future heirloom. We will use the technique of English Paper Piecing with hexagon shapes as they possess a wide angle which are easier to work with. A “rosette” can form a sweet pincushion, or can be repeated to create a coverlet or quilt
