Baby Pink Hexie Quilt


 I just can't seem to quilt hexies. This is my 3rd hexie quilt (I think) and I am working on my fourth. I really enjoy relaxing by hand sewing these hexies.

 I have tried glue basting and I like how fast the process is but I don't like the result when I take out the papers (the edges need to be fussed with and ironed).

 I gathered up all my pink scraps/stash and sewed up a bunch of hexie flowers.
 

  I quilted by sewing in the ditch and finished it off with a hand sewn binding. I machine washed and dried the quilt and it crinkled up nicely.

  3. I too use Sew Line glue on my hexis. But before I remove the papers I spray starch them, then iron them very well on both sides. This seems to loosen the glue and the papers come out quite easily.
