Here is what I have on my design wall. I have been wanting to make one of these for a while, but have been trying to get my tops quilted. I've finished a number of them, and wanted to start something new, so I've started this. I like it so far, and it's not very hard. I was expecting it to be a big production, and it's not, yay!
What a goof I am. I forgot to label the second picture, that is the fabric I cut the blocks from. I cut 3 3/4" strips, then cut the 60 degree triangles from the strip. Because I had just watched a video on line about cutting triangles for hexagons, I moved the template up, so the tip of the triangle template hangs over the top of the strip by 1/4". This leaves the top flat, so it's much easier to match the sides. I sew from the wide edge up to the tip for each half hexagon, and it goes very quickly. I also have a wallpaper seam roller I use to 'press' open the seams. I've attached a link so you can see what I mean. I always press my seams open, and because I'm using this tool, I don't have to use the iron, which saves time too.
