    Thanks Elle, Izy and Loretta for the picture info. I fiddled around with all you guys suggested and VIOLA!!! Now I hope I can remember what I did!!! It did take a little more time than I thought it should.

    Thankyou everyone for the compliments, it's very uplifting! I cut a 6" hexagon out of the scrap fabric and then cut the batting the same size. I use warm and natural because the fabric adheres to it really well. Then figure out what color back you want and cut it 7and 3/4". Fold the back toward the front and pin. The corners will fit perfect, then hand sew it down. Keep sewing hexagons till you get the size you want, then slip stitch it together. Sew a design to hold everything together. I sewed fron corner to corner on the machine. Everything else was handsewn. Great project for evenings while watching tv with DH. Not on hex is the same fabric. It's addicting. I got several gals going on it and we even exchanged fabric which was fun! Hope the instructions are clear. Please say so if not and I'll try to clear them up for you. That one turned out king size. You can't stop yourself once you get going!

    Close up of Hexagon Quilt. No, it's not bias tape that holds it together. When you get all three layers sewn together you just slip stitch it together.

    This might be a dump question. The pieces for the back that you cut 7 3/4 inches. Are they hexagon too? :oops:

    Ok see if I am understanding this right. Each hexagon has the backing brought forward like selfbinding and then they are joined like English paper piecing (more or less). If I am correct that is really easy!! Looks complicated tho!

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful pattern.!
    Can you tell me where I can get a print out of the 6" & 7 3/4" hexagons???
    When you fold the back toward the front, do you fold it over so you have no raw edges?
    I know what I'll be trying next! :mrgreen:
