    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.......!

    I just saw this tutorial After I saw the above pic on Pinterest!
    Since this was posted in 2009 I thought the shop would be closed, but No! So I ordered the two smaller sizes.......Happy Birthday to me.

    PS; This really needs to be brought up to the front and stapled there!

    Tiggersmom - good luck with your new templates. I had ordered the big ones and ended up making one Project Linus quilt. It turned out cute (picture somewhere on my camera). I loved making the hexies and loved that I could use my left-over batting scraps. The hardest part for me was stitching those together. I used a zig-zag stitch kind of big. But, I'm thinking I might try a smaller zig-zag width or possibly "clear" thread. It was a little hard to sew them all together. I might get industrious and try to hand sew them together. That might be the best alternative. But, they are addictive! I've always got a box of fabric cut and batting cut.....so I can sew those anytime!

    Good luck with them and let us know how they are working for you and what you are doing with them!

    Riversong, turn the steam function off. I used to do all starch and press applique prep which also works with no steam.

    This is an awesome project. Just wondering if these templates are still available and if they can be found online somewhere?

    I was at Hickory Hill Quilts, Hot Springs AR a couple of times last week on my vacation. Eddie is known there and I think the quilt in the first pic in this tut was there in the shop. I didn't think to take a pic of it. I did, however, spend a bit of $$$ there
