10 Gorgeous Hexie Projects

10 hexie projects

 

One of my lovely newsletter subscribers emailed me this week asking if I could suggest some hexie projects for her, as she had recently inherited a huge box of hexagons from her mother. I sent her a bunch of suggestions but I thought that info was too good not to share!  All these projects are based on English Paper Pieced (EPP) hexagons – they are a great scrap buster.

Get ready to go hexie mad!

  1. How are you attaching these to your fabric?…and What happens to the paper when you wash the completed project. It would seem like you’d get balled up paper inside your hexagon.

  2. After you sew your hexis together, you remove the papers before using in your project. If sewing several several rounds together, remove them row by row as you go just leaving the last row in while adding the next row. If appliquing to a background fabric starch and press the seams on th last row before removing the papers or, after sewing to background, cut a slit behind each hexi and remove the paper through this. Another option us to cut all the background from behind the all hexis, leaving a seam allowance, then remove the papers. I prefer the first method.
