I don’t think I actually wrote about the process at all in earlier posts. I’m doing the quilt traditional paper piecing style, except I’m using plastic forms for the inserts instead of paper inserts. The hexagons are about the size of silver dollars, each side is one inch long. I cut all my fabric into squares first, because I didn’t want to spend my life cutting out hexagons. The process is as follows:
· Pin the plastic hexagon form to the fabric
· Snip off the corners of the square so it is more hexagon shaped
· Fold over and base the edges of the fabric around the plastic form
· Then, sew the based pieces together with whip stitch and when all six sides of a form have been surrounded, remove the insert
I’m working in rows because that uses the fewest amount of inserts at one time.
