I love hexagons, but I'm not much for hand piecing. I sew mine by machine. I've always done it like Liz shows in her video. I was sitting marking the 1/4" points of a few hundred hexagons one night and at the same time I was talking with my friend Elaine. She told me that I didn't need to do all that marking, that there is a way to sew hexes by machine without it. I said, tell me more! She did and I went directly to the machine to give it a try. Low and behold it works. It took a bit of practice, but it works. No more marking!!
One more side to hand stitch on the binding of the bridges quilt. I changed my mind on the color of the binding...so I'm running a bit behind. I have to sew on the hanging sleeve too. Reveal on Monday for sure!
