Are you ready to have fun? Here is the first step in the process. We'll be making 6 curved hexies using P3 on Curved Hexagon Ruler. Line your 2" paper up on P3, draw a line around the curve and cut with paper scissors.
Use two contrasting fabrics for the two pieces of hexie paper. Baste with needle and thread. Stitch the two basted pieces together along the curve using the ladder stitch. I use painter's blue tape to hold the pieces together on the back and stitch from the front.
Stitch the 6 hexies together as shown in the picture at the top. You will notice I have not chosen a center hexie yet - because we're using the ladder stitch, we can easily add the center piece later.
Full video instructions are HERE. I highly recommend watching the video - I'll walk you through the entire process.
(Note: there are older videos on my YouTube channel using the hexie ruler with water soluble paper, using glue, and machine stitching pieces together....we will not be using the water soluble paper or glue in this quilt.)
Don't stress. You'll love the ladder stitch! You have an entire week to do this - as I promised, only one hexie unit per day. I like to stitch the hexies together as I go. So each day I make one unit and stitch it to the ones already made.
Feel free to ask me questions! I'm here to help. Also...I'd love to see your progress. Email pictures to me! Or post on Facebook on the Hexie Love Open Studio page!
I hope you enjoy! Stay safe and enjoy your hexie day!
