Since the weather isn't working right (it's broken), here's a finished project that I hope will brighten your day and give you a good taste of the Spring to come!
|18" x 18"|
I decided polka dots would make for some happy hexies! The hexagon templates are 1 1/2" and the fabric squares are 3 3/4".
I tried hard to make everything line up using 1/4" spacing. I may have went a little overboard on marking, and to be honest it wasn't that much help!
I just kept going. Glue, mark, glue again!
Yes indeed...glue! Fabric fusion was used to glue each and every hexagon down!
Once they were all secure, the quilting fun began! Don't you love the triangle pattern? It looks even better on the front!
Sneak peak from the outside looking in! I was happy I got to try the hidden zipper back again. Love it!
Here's a link to a fabulous tutorial at Modern Handcraft ~ Modern Hexagon Tutorial.
I hope to make a couple more one day soon!
