I went looking for my first quilt book to see if they had a section on hand piecing hexagons -- unfortunately I couldn't find the book which is really frustrating! I'm going to have to keep looking for it.
I'd ordered the Hexagon die for my GO Cutter and wanted to see if I could hand piece hexagon flowers with a goal of creating my own Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. I've done these flowers by English Paper Piecing before but I know it will be much quicker to just learn to hand piece them.
I did find a few photos in one of my other books that showed me how to turn the corners so I made a test block. It's not too bad but if you enlarge the photo you'll see one corner is messed up but the others all look pretty good.
Once the block was pieced, I wasn't sure how to press so I let the seams go the way they wanted to go.
The only other quilt I've hand pieced is my first one. I'd never used a sewing machine and decided I'd hand piece it and then flew from my home in Florida to visit Deb in Virginia and she showed me how to use her machine and quilt it in straight lines. The binding was also sewn by machine. I came home from that trip and bought myself a very basic Singer sewing machine from Walmart which I used for the first year and a half I was quilting.
I've ordered Jinny Beyer's book Quiltmaking by Hand but does anyone else have other suggestions? I'm specifically looking for information on hand piecing Hexagon quilts -- but NOT English paper piecing.
