My half inch hexie die cutter arrived from AccuQuilt yesterday and although I did play with it a little bit to try it out I didn’t get any stitched.
The Half Inch Die on the right that I point to is for the papers, and the die on the left for the fabric. For the fabric it says you can use 5 inch charms but there is waste that way, I tried it and had enough fabric left over to do another section of three – I think I measured the space as 5×2.5 – something like that.
I used some scraps and some freezer paper – that fabric is a 5 inch charm – you can see the waste – when I start for something that isn’t just trying it out I will measure it and not have that waste.
the sides of the paper is half inch – this practice hexie is ready to baste and piece.
LOL – comparison in size for what it would be finished after basting –the paper is the size it finishes at.
I tossed the witch in the trash – it wasn’t working out LOL – I will stick with simple. Sometimes simple is better than messing up when you are not experienced at a method!! Templates just laying on the fabric still needs to be sewn down. I need a lot more practice with machine applique before I tackle something more complicated then this – this is hard enough as it.
Worked in this area of Final Frontier on Tuesday night.
The area of neutral hexies that I have been stitching are now all joined in one piece and pinned to the wall – ready now to join two sections of neutrals to the main body of Handful of Scraps.
