New Ways to Hexie: English Paper-less Piecing by Machine
When hexagon-shaped patches are arranged in concentric rings around a centre/ the resulting design is known as a Grandmother's Flower Garden. This classic arrangement is traditionally done by hand using a technique known as English paper piecing. But modern times have brought along new options and we will explore them in this workshop.
Instead of basting hexies to paper (which needs to be removed), they could be basted to fusible interfacing (which stays inside) the Apliquick way. Instead of tracing and cutting dozens of hexies out of fusible interfacing, they could be purchased precut! And instead of whip- stitching the patches together by hand, they could be sewn together by machine using a small zigzag stitch.
SKILL LEVEL: Suitable for all skill levels.
Cost: $150 for one-day workshop
