EEP! It’s an EPP Halloween Blog Hop!

Halloween Hexies

I’ve really been having fun playing with English Paper Piecing (EPP) ever since I got Diane Gilleland’s All Points Patchwork and made my very first EPP project.

I reviewed that book here. In a nutshell – it’s absolutely fabulous.

Every time I look at a hexie template – especially when it’s solo and surrounded by other fabric – I see an eyeball. 🙂 So when Diane asked me to participate in a Halloween EPP Blog hop I leaped at the chance.

The design is super easy. Make a bunch of hexies and then start playing around with them.

Halloween Hexies

I made 96 black hexies using all the black-on-black fabrics in my scraps, and 14 green hexies, two each of all my acid green scraps.

Then I started playing around with the arrangement and joining them together.

I put the matching eyes together in pairs, and then added 1/2″ felt circles. If you make them “look” in the same direction, they’ll look like pupils to the eyes.

Frame your eyeballs in a hoop using this method.


A Halloween EPP Blog HopYou could make just a single pair of eyeballs for a fast little project in a small hoop, or a whole bunch of eyeballs for a bigger piece.

How many eyeballs do you want to sew?


I’m not the only one getting spooky with my EPP.

A lot of my favorite designers are playing along! Want to see what they’ve made? Check out the links below.

New designers will be added every day this week – so keep checking back. 🙂

Happy Halloween!

That's me!


  1. I love the eyeballs on the hexies, what a great Halloween project! Make as many as you want, and since it’s so portable, small ones would make up quickly.
