I've been wanting to make a hexagon quilt for some time. Today I went to a local quilt shop, and asked if they had any hexagon paper pieces - unfortunately they don't stock them, but they did have one of these:
I bought one. At the time it looked very simple, since my rotary cutter and I are currently on speaking terms. But thinking about it, I don't understand how you then piece the hexagons together.
The ruler means that the paper aspect is unnecessary, right? You just cut a hexagon straight out of fabric. But how do you then sew them together? In all the tutorials I have seen, the fabric is folded around the paper, and then you whip-stitch them together. How do you that with one of these, unless you use an iron to press the seam allowance down? Or would it be easier to try and machine sew it?
Help a confused quilter please!
