Anything Goes - Quilt 'n Sew #9 - Useful Links

Some days most days I want to kick myself for staying up late at night surfing the internet.  Not just because I wake up tired, but mostly because of all the beautiful things I see that makes my "I want to make this" list grow even longer.

But I was quite happy when I stumbled upon a few links that I think you might find useful if you enjoy english paper piecing. 


I am currently paper piecing hexagons from scraps, and I came across this useful cutting guide, explaining exactly what size fabric squares you'll need for a specific size hexie, and of course how much hexies you'll get from strips, FQ's, quarter yard or half yard fabric.  You can download it HERE.



Here is another useful link if you want to create your own downloadable and printable PDFs, creating the exact size hexies you want.


You can also use this LINK for other types of graph paper like circles and squares.

So I suppose in the end, going to bed in the midnight hours is not all that bad, except for having far to many midnight snacks.  With winter around the corner it is NOT a good thing, since I love my comfort foods... LOL.

But now it's time for this week's linky party


It's Monday and a new week, so lets all share some of our projects, please link up any current projects you've been working on, anything at all...  This link is open for a week and will run every Monday.  Remember to come back next week, or follow my blog to get regular updates.

If you wish feel free to add any other blog posts you write during the week, since this linky stays open for a full week, I think its a great idea to share and keep sharing.

All I ask is that you either add the 'Anything Goes' blog button to your sidebar or add a text link to your blog post, and comment on a few of the other links too, share the love and make this weekly link party a fun way to connect.

Thanks for the links, Marelize. I have not done any paper piecing yet, but at least now you have saved me some time in research! We are just getting to the end of winter here. Do you guys get snow there?

Hi I just love doing hexagons and did 4 today to use as corners for a row by row wallhanging.
The hexagons are just great fun and also using up ones scrap fabrics.
