    I was just given a new project and I'm not quite sure how to tackle it. My principal has asked me to sew a box full of hexigon pieces together, but I only machine quilt and I'm new to this as well. Anyone have any tips?

    I guess I should have intoduced myself first... Hello from Florida.

    I'm a beginner at this (only piecing for 2 years).

    hexagons are easier to stitch by hand, but not horrible to do my machine. here's a tutorial showing one way to do them on the machine.

    if the quilt in your avatar is an example of your work, you have definitely graduated from "beginner". ;-)

    and thanks for the compliment! This is only one of a very few quilts I kept for myself. Red is my favorite color and I also used some Mickey Mouse fabric (big Disney fan). Lately I've been making some purses.

    Welcome from Indiana! I sewed mine by hand and enjoy doing that as I watch TV. But the above instructions are very good for doing them on the machine.
    Love your purse :-D :thumbup:
    Hope you share a picture with us when you are done with your hexagons. Will share a picture of my work in progress
