    Evelyn, check the page before this one (20) , you will see they can be handsewn. My preferred method is whip stitch from back ( right sides together, in other words).

    Thank you for your excellent tutorial. I had seen this pattern but didn't know the name or method. (Just experimenting I would have made a bollix and not a hexagon. )

    There is also a pattern for doing this framed hex without using the layers and flip over......just sewing half hexies around a center one(same size) as the frame...just piecing, like any block......sorry right now don't recall name of it, but I do know F&P, among others have demoed it.....I'm sure someone here has a site addy for it.....

    Eddie, thanks again for the great tutorial. I finally purchased the template. I think I got the medium. I'm so excited to open the package......but I'm "scared" to open the package. You make it look so easy. You had mentioned you were planning on making a Christmas quilt. Could you post a picture? I need inspiration. And, thank you to whomever on page 20 indicated how to stitch them together by hand. I like to do stuff while traveling in the car......my plan is to make a box of these puppies and then sew them by hand while I'm in the car. Not sure if it will work, but I am thinking this will also help me utilize those smaller pieces of batting that are always left-over. I also appreciate the Hickory Hill Quilt store.......got the templates quickly and no problems at all. I'd love to visit there sometime. Eddie, you are lucky to be close! Hope you are happily quilting and sewing in lovely Arkansas! Thanks again everyone! I'm going to open the package right.....now.......!
