so...... I did it!
My very first ever hexagon flower. I did not use a 1" hexagon template. I used a 1½" hexagon template. Folded the fabric over the paper template and basted in place. Then I stitched the 'petals' to the center. Not too hard, but there are a couple 'spots' that the thread shows through to the front. I will have to work on that!
Then I tried a different way. I cut freezer paper templates and used the edge of that as my stitching line. Just did a running stitch and this is what I got.
Will I make a bunch of these hexagon flowers??? Probably not. I'm thinking of pressing the one I finished and removing the paper and appliqueing it to a solid color square of fabric. Guess I'll have to play a bit more :-)
Wishing everyone a great weekend.
