#52tagshannemade week 18

Week 18's prompt was English paper-pieced (EPP) hexagons with running stitch.

EPP involves temporarily attaching fabric to shaped pieces of paper to add strength to the shapes to enable the pieces to be stitched together.  The papers are removed once the pieces are stitched together. 

Hexagons are a popular shape for this type of patchwork,  but other shapes include diamonds,  squares, triangles etc. 

Once I'd finished sewing the hexagons together, I stitched them onto a piece of vintage linen using running stitch, both horizontally and vertically, imitating quilting. I then attached the piece to a tag.
