Clare asked me if I would demonstrate how I sew my hexagons together. I'm always happy to share what I do and how I do it. Now that I've figured out how to shoot video with my camera (very technical stuff - I had to press the red button) I'm all set to do more demonstrations. So here's a little video of how I stitch my hexagons together! I'll post another video in a couple of days to show you how I set a hexagon in a corner so do come back!
If you are wondering what I'm going to do with those two hexagons I stitched together in the video here's a sneak peak!
I'm working on month two of The Hexie Blog QAL and this is the February installment. The first month was a snowflake and I liked the blue so much I think I will use blues to make all of my blocks. The center of the heart is supposed to be completely filled in with hexagons but I wanted something open and airy because the snowflake had some opens spaces. I'm going to add something to my heart but I'm not sure what although I'm mulling over a few ideas! I'll be sure to post a picture when it is finished!
So until I post again, happy sewing!
love the heart shape, great for tomorrow so I better get sewing..ReplyDelete
Thanks Barbara. The heart is a little dull right now but I'll get it spruced up right nice!Delete
Love the video. Thanks. I am looking forward to many moreReplyDelete
Well thanks for the comment Clare. But for it there would be no video!Delete
Thanks for the video expertise! (And you're younger than I had assumed). Can't wait to see the next Soupçon.ReplyDelete
Hi Nicole - I wanted to send you a note but you are a no reply blogger! I'm so happy you are looking forward to Step 4 of Soupcon.Delete
Thanks! I like the idea of putting the knot further end. I'll give that a try.ReplyDelete
I find it really makes a big different when stitching larger units together so do give it a go!Delete
So nice, your heart. I thought about keeping the hexies in blue, as I started the first block. Now I'm doing it red and pink instead. But you got me thinking of making one blue too. Then I have to make another snowflake in red and pink. And soon I will have two different projects going on. Hm, I have to think about it again....ReplyDelete
I'm also going to try putting the knot further in. Thanks for the video.ReplyDelete
