Default First Hexagon block from Basket of Scraps BOM

I have never made a hexagon block before, first try and all hand done. Not perfect but will do still have to make 4 more.

Are you sewing the hexs together before applique? Sew them, press them, then applique them. From the picture, it seems you are appliquing them and putting them together at the same time. If I am wrong, please forgive me. I, too,
am working on a small 24" square with 1/2" hexes and I am in the process of quilting them and my hands are sore.

Congratulations!
You have entered hexie-land and will soon be hooked.

Could you tell us more about this BOM?
Is it an online BOM? or one at your LQS?
Perhaps link(s) to more details about it?
Thanks!


(I googled, but did not find anything that I thought matched up with your first block)

I made the hexagons first, that stitched them together and appliqued them to the block.

Thanks for letting me know.
Looks like a nice way to get started with hexies and other EPP,
while mixing with traditional piecing.

ENJOY!

Good job on your first attempt. More power to you.....hexi's are not my thing nor is "hand-anything".... That's a pretty BOM....have fun. You always amaze me on what you produce......no doubt, after four blocks, you'll be an expert.

I love EPP! This project looks interesting - do you have to buy it with the fabric or can you just pay $4.99 for the whole pattern?

You could just purchase the book and not do it as a bom.

Nice job job on the first flower. That is such a nice project.

Thanks ladies, the hexagon is suppose to be only 2 pieces, but I did it in 7 as I didn't like the big one.
