    How would you do this? I understand a facing but I can't grasp how a facing would help when it's a backing you're needing to attach to the little shapes. I think she would need to lay the batting down first then the backing down, face up.. next the quilt top...face down and stitch 1/4" from the edge of all the little pieces, then trimmed away the excess, would you be able to turn it out like a pillow case?

    LOL, I've never made one obviously but that's where my mind takes me, right or wrong. Ha!

    Another option is to applique hexagons to a strip of matching fabric to create straight edge ; easier to bind this way
