Fussy Cutting

I am continuing to have lots of fun with hexagons. This week I played around with some fussy-cut fabrics and created some rather pretty hexagon flowers.


I am cutting only seven hexagons from each fabric so that every flower will be unique.
 
 Thank you for all the encouraging comments on my last post. A few people were interested in knowing more about the glue method. Sue Daley has a tutorial on her blog that explains it very well. Worth a look.


Just one more week of school for me before the term ends. Really looking forward to some sewing time. I can't remember the last time I used my sewing machine ... but it was quite a few months ago.

  13. Each one an individual I like that. I tend to go mad on a piece of material and then try and get some sort of semblance after.
