I was asked to post some pictures of what to do with hexagons.
First, when I cover the papers, I cover 6 identical units so I can make 6 petal flowers, or 3+3 petal flowers, finally add a center of choice. I really love these 1/2″ hexagons – that is the measurement along one edge.
When I had a pile of covered hexis (say a couple hundred or so) the fun began for me!
As you are covering hexagon papers to create flowers, be sure to cover papers with the path fabric you have chosen, the project also requires lots of path hexis, don’t wait, work on them as you are making the flowers.
I’ve assembled both layouts to make doll quilts size quilts, however I haven’t added borders to either, maybe this winter? These are ‘no deadline’ projects – gotta love those!
I have a new hexi project underway (I can’t help myself), see my July 2nd Journal entry.
Also if you write ‘hexi’ or ‘Hexagon’ into the ‘search feature’ on my Journal page (blog), the posts come up where I blogged about hexis or hexagons.
There are lots and lots of hexagon eye candy on Pinterest, and also lots and lots of new new and vintage EPP (English Paper Piecing) quilts on Pinterest.
EPP or hexis are wonderful handwork and take along projects. Join in the fun!
