Unless we are talking about embroidery or cross stitch or crochet, I am not a fan of hand stitching. I LOVE it, it’s beautiful, but I do not have the patience. Maybe one day, but not now.
And you EPP piecers are just amazing, but I’m just lacking and drive to go down that road. However, I do love hexagons. Like love them. Like really really love them.
And it’s about time I gave them a go. In a way I don’t mind trying. And I had a special request from a customer so that gave me the push I needed.
I bought the hex n more ruler specifically for this quilt. It made cutting half hexagons extremely easy. And with half hexagons, one can piece in rows like normally and still end up with a hexagon shape.
My hexies are 8.5″. I cut (50) 4.5″ strips and subcut each strip into 4 half hexagons. There are directions on the ruler.
It wasn’t bad at all. Not to cut up or to piece.
This ruler too does so much more. It has three differ t size hexies, equilateral triangles and more so I’m excited about the possibilities.
Finished pics to come soon
