I love all the hexagon work I'm seeing all over the place these days, and I'm coming to appreciate it even more as I've been working on them! There are about as many opinions on the best way to piece hexagons as there are people sewing hexagons, so I've read and read and settled on my technique. I'll post more on that later, but for now, my preferences are:
- cardstock for hexagon templates
- basting on the back, without sewing through the paper
- joining hexagons with a running stitch
Those seem to be the most debatable parts. If you're looking for a good comparison on hexagon options, this post at The Sometimes Crafter was extremely helpful!
Have you jumped on the hexagon bandwagon? What's your favorite approach?
