My lovely friend Elise from Elise & Emelie has created a fantastic English Paper Pieced Flower pattern that she calls Dilly Flowers. They’re so sweet!
She kindly sent me some of the pre-cut paper templates to try, in both half inch and one inch sizes. She sells these in her Etsy store. I used some of my favourite Liberty fabric scraps to create two precious flowers!
Being the clever lady that she is, Elise also created a digital file that has Dilly Flower sets with centre hexagons measuring half, three quarter and one inch and also 1.5 and two inches. I printed and cut out the 1.5 inch set and created a lovely large Liberty Dilly Flower too.
I’m not sure what I will use these beauties for yet. I can either adorn some of my pretty projects with individual flowers, or create a whole selection of them and make a gorgeous flower quilt.
And for more tips on sewing with hexies, you might like my English Paper Piecing Tutorial.
Happy stitching, Lauren x
