Updating a Hexie Post from Last Year
Do you remember this post? Let's review (because I actually got around to finishing it!)
Applique the focus hexagon (which is also interfaced) onto the center
And then cut away the white background fabric from behind the Hexagon Block
What am I going to do with all these small quilted samples? Too big for a mug rug. Too small for a table runner. But they are good to take on the road as teaching samples.
Create a ring of hexagons. Stitch them together as shown.

I faced the 6 hexagons with medium weight interfacing

|Don't you just love interfacing? It's AWESOME!|
Now it's ready to be appliqued to a 15-1/2" background square of white on white fabric:
|Center and machine applique with invisible mono-filament thread|
|Clip away fabric to reduce bulk. This would make an interesting applique, huh?|
|Everything clipped away and you can see the seaming and applique stitches|
I finally got around to quilting this. Used my HandiQuilter Sweet 16 and it was so much fun.
