Katja Marek’s “Quilt-lets”

Here’s my first “Quilt-let.”

The idea is make these little beauties “on the go” and to sew them together into a completed quilt.

One uses Marek’s designs from her book THE NEW HEXAGON and buys the EPP pieces from paperpieces.com.  You can buy a package of all 52 blocks in the 3-inch size or buy, in increments, the 4-inch block pieces during the year.  Marek is doing the 4-inch size.  I’m doing the 3-inch.  You can also buy templates to cut the batting and backing in the right size.

You can also just make these blocks and hook them together with other pieces that geometrically work, like a triangle.

I’m thinking, though, that I might anchor that central block with one line of stitch-in-the-ditch sewing on the machine.  I hate stitch-in-the-ditch sewing though…  Maybe “peck and stab” by hand with a matching thread???  Maybe just in the middle???

    • If you go to Katja Marek’s web site, all the info you need is there. Basically you use a hexie ruler to cut the batting to size AND two pieces that fit around that ruler to cut the backing–which folds over to the front. The block fits onto the “hole” in the front. Paperpieces.com also has links to all the info as well. Click on projects, Katja Marek, etc.
