Ahem, last week I had to eat those words.
The program at the monthly sewing group meeting was English paper-piecing, aka hexies. I selected fabric, took it to the meeting, and went to work after Ingrid explained the procedure.
|Ingrid showed the group the king-size quilt top|
she made completely by hand. She hopes to
hand-quilt the top as well.
After I had basted the fabric on the paper templates, the first section went together fairly quickly.
A third round was added, and the paper templates were removed from the hexagons completely surrounded.
The last round (green hexagons) will soon be added, and then I'll have to decide how to finish the mat - keep the hexagon edge or cut it straight.
Obviously, I need to be more careful when I say, "never."
