I’m not really sure why I don’t do more hexagon hand sewing projects. They are the best thing to carry around. So small, quick to sew and it’s so fun to see them grow into a project.
That last part is my favorite– so fun to see them grow into a project.
It’s never been on my list of to-do’s….a super queen size grandmother’s garden quilt, but I can see the beauty of making them one hexagon at a time.
Maybe sometime in the future, but for now, I’ll keep with the smaller quick, simple and cute projects using hexagons.
Today, I’m sharing a quick video on how you get those hexagons to the background fabric. I mean, you have a bunch– maybe a nice little pile accumulating, but what? now what? Let’s get those hexagons first sewing into a row (or any other shape you are going for) and then…they need a background piece.
Hint: it’s a quick stitch around the edges, picking up a little bit of the background along the way around the shape. Super simple and totally doable!
