"Diana, the ones I use come from Africa and are called House of Embroidery threads, she does silk, stranded cotton, perle cotton, and rayon. It's beautiful and so lovely to work with. I bought it with me when I moved from South Africa to England."

I always admire the English yarns and knitting patterns. Though l have several, l must do several trial swatches to achieve correct tension. The north American yarns a more loosely twisted, and the stitches are wider/shorter than w/British product. The terminology in crotchet is different than ours as well. Your slip st. is our single crotchet, for instance.

As you saw on my page, l too made a GFG quilt ( but not w/paper piecing, just hand sewed regular way). lf you visit my page again, find the "blogs posted", click on the words...l did a tutorial on a bias binding for these quilts with scalloped sides that you may find helpful. Read it before you do te actual quilting, as you have to keep backing rectangular and not cut until after the binding is on to keep it from didtorting.Good luck, and be as ever, patient:)

great. we seem to be wandering the same paths here this afternoon. just left a note for you at epp. but i really would start fresh. i have a hexi project i picked up at a yardsale. i played w it for a while off and on, will probably never finish it. the originater of the project decided to make hexi gfg with double knit. wow..ok...lets see how this goes..should prob just toss it. oh well...but like i said..flexability of cotton or silk..ability to hold a crease...all that makes silk & cotton my preferred for epp. which i do not do a lot of..so it has to be easy! lollol

Thanks for the tips.  Now I'll have to give it a try.  I've always liked piecing by hand, now I can try a new technique.  I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Thanks for the comment :)  Can't wait to see pictures of your flower garden.  I have wanted to try english paper piecing, but haven't made it there yet.  Any suggestions or hints?
