Hexie tutorials - patchwork


Weekend reading! Hexie tutorials!
For the girls wanting to learn hexies with me here are some tutorial and template links to get you started. If you read through at least a few of these you will get the general idea, there are a few different techniques for basting and joining but it seems to mostly depend upon your personal preference. I have noted in my links if I used a particular technique in my starting. I will come back in following days with some project idea links and share my beginning thoughts and experience in a post too.


Chase has shared this Great tutorial with lots of pictures. Includes basting and joining technique.

Jenelle shares this tutorial with templates for three different sizes.

Robin shows a way of joining a flower where the centre and radial sides are joined at once.

Kati Recycles plastic milk bottles for templates!

Amy from badskirt put together this great text doc.  
which I used as my starting point and I love this finishing technique she has shared

Kathy Shares these 1 inch templates these are what I have started with.


 So far I think that there are 4 or five of us willing to give this a try for the first time :)

Have a great weekend

  1. Looks like lots of inspiration there to look through T. I'm sure when I get some time to have a good look it won't seem so daunting.
    Can't wait to see what you have been making with your hexies.
