English Paper Piecing: Quilted Flower Tote

I’m a huge fan of the English paper piecing quilt-making technique, which is a hand-sewing method that uses paper templates—in this case, hexagon shapes—as a guide to create crisp, accurate fabric shapes.

Stitching hexes into flower blocks like the ones used in this project is one of my go-to crafts for unwinding and relaxing after a busy day, and I think you might enjoy it too!

Ready to get started? Practice your English paper piecing skills with a pretty and practical beginner-friendly project with this quilted flower tote tutorial from Heidi at Hands Occupied.
