My big purchase (not counting Superior Threads) at the AQS show in Des Moines was 600 1″ hexagon papers for English paper piecing! I’m going on a bus trip later this month and wanted to bring a hand sewing project. I plan to cut a bunch of 2 1/2″ squares to start the process of making a small hexagon quilt or table runner. When I got home from the show a birthday present was waiting for me from Wendy, one of my very good customers! A 4″ Gingher scissors! It’s a perfect take along scissor that is sharp enough to cut the corners of fabric and clip thread! I tried it out this weekend when we traveled to Luther College for parents weekend, sewing the little samples that Paper Pieces hands out at the show.
