    Question I can't remember!!! Hexi's

    I have some EPP pieces I did quite a while ago.........hexi's, using Quilt Pati's the plastic or mylar hexi's that are all ready cut out with a center hole.
    I can't remember how I did them. On you tube everybody shows cutting the fabric 1/4 inch larger and basting each corner.
    That is not how I did them. Looking at mine on the back they are basted in the center so I have almost a double thickness of fabric and they look pretty good so I have to feel them to see which is the right side. But for the life of me I can't remember how I did them and can not find a you tube tute on how this method is done..........I know I didn't dream up this method on my own!!! lol, I'm not that clever.
    Has anyone else seen this method????? Can anyone point me in the right direction to watch a video of this?

    Please, Help!!!!!

    Thank You!

    Maybe you started with a square? Here's a tutorial.

    OMgoodness, what a brain storm I just had!
    In my post to EasyPeasy, I had the thought to take one apart........so I just did........drum-roll..........It's a 3" circle.
    Who would have thought it but apparently it worked great a l-o-n-g time ago. LOL
    Back to my drawing board, errr I mean cutting circles.

    Ayes, there is a technique where the Hexie is two sided, starting with a circle, folded, sewed, folded, sewed...I have the book somewhere in my collection, cannot recall the author, but I'm sure someone here will know. It is a fun way to do hexies.......

    There are several you tube videos showing this method - I just typed in English Paper Piecing circle. Good luck.

    I just finished my first Hexie quilt (from [email protected]@@) I used the accuquilt hexie die cutter and it also cuts out the papers!! I used a f&p glue pen instead of basting. Those two short cuts saved hours. This pattern was from a fractal quilt free from https://patforsterblog.wordpress.com...ing-to-sydney/ if you’re into torture. Lol.

    The book that uses circles to make hexagons is Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts by Dr. P. Rhodes.
