Tackle Your Quilt WIPs

Do you have what many quilters call the "WIP pile of shame"? Well, I want to encourage you because I always have at least 15-30 quilt WIPs (works in progress) going at once! And, something I've learned is that quilt WIPs are such a great way to learn what captures our attention, what holds us back, how we enjoy to make, and what parts are worth skipping over. But, they should never be a source of shame. So, I've written and compiled the following blog posts to help you navigate your WIP pile with JOY instead of shame.

Simple, Beautiful Hexagons

There's a reason hexagons have been the cornerstone of EPP quilts for generations. They're easy to sew with, look beautiful, and offer a huge array tiling patterns. I've chosen my three favourite hexagon designs, made a timeless and easy quilt for each, and bundled them together in this PDF pattern.
