Pre-cut paper honeycombs for use in English Paper Piecing. The honeycomb is a regular polygon and it is like a squashed hexagon. Honeycombs are measured along the side and all sides are equal.
The honeycomb is a versatile shape and is generally paired with squares to create various tessellating patterns. Probably the most famous Quilt design using the honeycomb is Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses.
English Paper Piecing is a traditional patchwork style that uses hand piecing as the basis for its construction. Fabric is tacked to a paper shape & then the shapes are hand-sewn together using a whip stitch. This method makes for very precise piecing.
