Countdown Day 3: English Paper Piecing

3 days until Chattanooga AQS QuiltWeek® and rapid-fire post #5.

As a follow-up to rapid-fire post #4 on the Slow Stitching Movement and English Paper Piecing (EPP)... this is Paper Pieces. It's a cool little shop in a huge, high-ceiling-ed house in the arts district in Paducah, KY. You could call it "Hexagon City," as it's home to all things EPP—tools, templates (paper and acrylic), books, patterns and EPP inspiration to the hilt! If you want to try piecing/quilting with hexagons, visit Jess who runs the store or go to the Paper Pieces web site.
Paper Pieces, Paducah, KY
The shop is located close to the National Quilt Museum and other galleries, stores and artsy venues near the Paducah riverfront.
Millefiori Quilts book by Willyne Hammerstein.
By the way, have you seen the New Hexagon Millefiori quilts? Talk about Hexie-mania! This is the hot new trend in fussy-cut, kaleidoscope hexagon quilts. Here is a book by Willyne Hammerstein, here is Katja's QAL, and check out Sharon's posts about her La Passacaglia Quilt at the Lilabelle Lane blog.

BTW, Paper Pieces has paper piecing packs for La Passacaglia.
