  1. I’ve been wanting to learn paper piecing but haven’t yet. Maybe 2014?

  2. I would rather stitch by machine but only because I have yet to try hand piecing. Once I do, who know, I might become a fan.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. I am a fan of machine piecing. Hand piecing does look interesting though, and I wouldn’t mind trying it on one quilt. Congratulations on 5 years!

  6. The only way I’ve ever tried is by hand, but I am open to trying new things. I’ve just found that by doing it by hand, while obviously it takes longer it is something I can pick up and do easily for a few minutes here and there or take with me on the go.

  8. What a great giveaway! You’re so generous with all of us and thank you ! Yes! I love to do EPP. I have two projects I’m working on at the moment. I have not yet tried the bigger hexagons and using the sewing machine, but I’d love to try. Congratulations again on the big 5!

  14. Machine piecing so far! I do Wool hand applique but that is it.
    Thanks for he sweet giveaway!

  15. Ooh, la, la! I prefer machine stitching because it’s faster, but I do like EPP!

  16. I have sewn both methods, by machine and by hand or EPP. I can honestly say that I enjoy EPP because of its portability. I haven’t tried sewing with precut hexagons yet but I did purchase the paper necessary to make them the EPP way. Thank you for the chance to win, Jen, and Happy 5th birthday to ReannaLily Designs.

  18. I love hand piecing – it’s so therapeutic!
    Thanks for a great giveaway!


    August 16, 2013

  19. I have not done any English hand piecing yet. I have arthritis in both hands and am afraid I’ll make that flare up very badly. I keep thinking I should try but just haven’t yet. I am probably kidding myself since I know better so I’m sure all of mine will be done on machine.


    August 16, 2013

  20. I have read about hand piecing, but haven’t actually tried it. I think piecing by machine is the way I would tend to use the most. I am really interested in machine piecing hexies!!
    Thanks for the giveaways!

  21. I love hexagons! Nothing else to say!


    August 16, 2013

  22. I go in stages. For awhile it’s handwork appliqu?, and then I’m into an all-machine phase. I have been wanting to try the modern patterns in Jen Eskridge’s book. What could be better than sewing up one of her quilts with precut hexagons.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  25. Jen, your book may be just the thing for the inspiration I need to use up all those hexies that are sitting unused as I have no idea what to make with them, but love making them 🙂

  31. I am really interested in trying hexies and so will start large and work down to smaller. I think this would be a perfect thing for me to do during my lunch break, especially when the days start getting cooler..and you know they will! Thanks so much for sharing, and congratulations.
