The Joys of Hex, Day 3

Just a circle of hexies sewn together
Fussy cut owls in those trees - perfect size for a perfect block
I pulled this from my Hexagon Quilt Vault: Owls are the Bomb
Each block fits onto a fat quarter - Yikes!
These were sewn into a circle and I added an appliqued center hexagon. All this was then appliqued to the red background square, which really was a fat quarter - can you believe it? You can see my steps to get to this block here: Owls are the Bomb.

How about FREE Printable Sheets to transfer the markings to the wrong side of fabric so you can cut out and stitch 1" hexies without those pesky papers? You can have this file for PERSONAL use only; not to be printed and distributed, please. I know some of you like to sew along the line. This is perfect for just that.
Print accurate cutting lines for perfect 1" hexies to sew by hand or machine
 Yes, you can! If this sort of sewing interests you, then please go ahead and get the file. The second page has 12, one inch hexies to print as you can see in these pictures.

FREE Pattern for printing and sewing
Print. Cut out. Sew by hand or machine.
