FREEBIE- 1/2″ English Paper Piecing Hexies Printable Template

I’ve caught the English Paper Piecing bug, and since I couldn’t find a small free template in a tiny 1/2″ size elsewhere online, I figured I’d make a freebie!

Here’s a free 1/2″ Hexagon template. The hexies measure 1/2″ across each end, 1″ across the diameter. You can use these for your little leftover scraps from your sewing projects.

Here’s the Filehttps://wearinghistoryblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/halfinchEPPtemplate.pdf

If you use it, please let me know how you enjoyed it!

Though much larger size, this is a quilt I’m currently working on that will give you an idea of what sort of things can be accomplished through English Paper Piecing. Here’s an article from Flossie Teacakes about English Paper Piecing if you’re not sure what it is.

    I love English paper piecing. The points are exact and so easy to travel with.

    You might enjoy An American Quilt: Unfolding A Story of Family and Slavery, by Rachel May. An unfinished paper-pieced quilt remained in the same family for generations and wound up in a museum collection — and the documents that were cut up to make the quilt hexagons had never been removed. May tries to follow this “breadcrumb” paper trail to trace the history of the women, free and enslaved, who worked on the quilt. (She also has a lot of family documents and letters, but not from the enslaved women….) I thought she tried too hard to tell us what people were thinking — not my kind of history writing — but the idea of what can be learned from this unfinished paper piecing still excites me.
