Basic Hexagon Quilting – Tutorial
I am doing bit of hexagon quilting (English paper piecing) during the weekend for a project. I am not telling what it is, you got to guess. Some photos here should give you a great hint!!! I will post up the finished piece, so come back later to check out. See if you get it right! Sorry, no prize!
Since I am doing it, I photographed the steps just to show you the process to make a hexagon quilt.
First, you need to cut out the hexagon shape cardboards and fabrics of your choice. The size of the fabric must be big enough so that you can fold it over like the picture shown below. An estimation of double the size of your hexagon cardboard is required.
Tack stitch the fabric while folding it to the cardboard as shown. This is to secure the fabric in place in the shape of a hexagon.
Update!I have created a pin cushion project from this hexagon quilt, please go there and have a look!
