Bitten by the Hexagon bug

Today I worked on some 4 patches for an exchange from the Quiltville chat Yahoo group. I am about halfway done with the 100 blocks needed by May.
I have fallen in love with the EPP! (English Paper Piecing) I tried this when I was 11 (1961). I found the box in the attic. Then there was a demo at my guild's last meeting. I bought some papers off EBay and when they came I was bitten hard! Don't know when I will ever hand quilt again. This is supposed to be a take along project but all I want to do is make little hexes!

Oh goodness, I have never tried English Paper Piecing, but you have to have PATIENCE and maybe a little more PATIENCE!
Can't wait to see more!
Cheers,
