Machine Stitching Hexies


I've been getting questions about the stitch I use to stitch hexies together by machine. This is stitch number 1352 on my BERNINA.

 
In this example I matched the thread to the fabric. But it's also fun to use a contrasting thread - why hide the stitches when they look this good?


And yes, I got lots of hexies stitched together yesterday! And here was my view of the lake across the street while I sewed. This morning the field is covered in frost. I may have to wear long sleeves today.

This morning I'm heading back to the sewing machine - need to finish a section of Bliss.

Smiles today!

  2. Hmmmm I'll have to look that stitch up. Mine only go in the hundreds (# wise) but this stitch may be on my 440...it's not on my 1090. Interesting and looks good! Thanks!

  3. Do you use paper templates with your hexagons? If so, how do you remove the templates after stitching them this way? I would think it would be much more difficult to remove them with this type of stitching.
