    Question Hexagons

    Looking for tutorial on a Japanese technique called Orinumo (I think!). With the use of English paper piecing hexagons. The hexagons are made and then framed similar to cathedral windows. I have seen it on Pinterest.

    Are these where you sandwich backing and batting and a top piece and then turn the flower shaped back piece to the front?

    I did google it, and that is the correct name. You might try doing a search for it that way. Some very pretty pieces

    actually, it is spelled orinuno. this site has an explanation...scroll most of the way down. http://www.origami-resource-center.c...c-folding.html

    a little higher on that page, they show some dimensional flowers from a book by rebecca wat. i have that and tried those flowers... they are somewhat difficult, but impressive. i'd hate to do an entire quilt in them... mine's a small wall hanging.

    I had a book with the different techniques and made a whole quilt with the flowers on it. It was very nice, but when I washed it, the flowers unfolded. I ended up throwing it away. I'm sure I did something wrong, but I wish I hadn't washed it. It was very pretty before washing.
