My stitches aren't very small at all. Probably only four or five per side. The ladder stitch is kind of hard for me to bet very small pieces though. Maybe I should change the stitch. I bought the pre cut paper pieces, which I love, but the fabric does seem a little 'loose' on them no matter how well I baste it. I guess thats got to be normal since its not permanently anchored to the paper.... I remember on Fons and Porter on time they had done hexies and I cant remember their technique but it included somehow heavy starching and pressing each hexie.
I am loving this though. I find myself hoping for "waiting" time now instead of dreading it. Lol
