"I agree the Aurifil 50wt is great! I don't like it for freemotion quilting, but for handsewing I do adore it!
Also, I'd like to add for your readers that I LOVE your papers! I'll admit, I was a little disappointed when they first arrived as thin paper instead of cardstock, but, HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO REMOVE THAT CARDSTOCK? It's nearly impossible! "
I use 2.5" squares for my hexies. Not patient enough to cut hexie shapes of my fabric. I turn my fabric to the back and put a lock stitch at each angle through just the fabric on the backside of the hexie....I see you are doing it different...it looks like you stitch thru the paper on the front side? I'd love an explanation and walk thru of your way!
I'm hoping to gain some experience and some wisdom by following your blog and this nice idea you have to share your users projects.
Oh, and I agree that hexies are great for a large scale print! Ive got a set going now with big Hawiian flowers...
I hope this is what you were looking for when you contacted me....
I think I may make a small zippered pouch for a first project? Oh I'm just so nervous about sewing these things together by hand!
Thanks again for a great product!"
