Now I'm no expert in these, so let's all learn together!
I've found a few helpful websites, so let's get started!
You'll need templates for cutting your hexagon pieces and templates. You can print some off from the Willow Market website. I recommend printing/cutting from thin cardstock if you can. It's a little bit sturdier then the usual print paper!
* English Paper Piecing Templates printed on cardstock at actual size (full scale)
* Cotton fabric scraps or fat quarters, two contrasting prints or colors
* Hand quilting thread, a colour that will blend in with your fabrics
* Glue stick (optional)
* Fabric scissors
* Hand quilting needle
* Paper scissors
I have found a great tutorial with lots of photos over at the 'Zen of Making' website. Click on the link for all the instructions (Part 1) to make the individual hexagons and then over to Part 2 of the Tutorial for assembly into gorgeous Hexagon flowers! There are heaps of instructions for making hexagons, including these ones from Pretty by Hand and Bee in my Bonnet.
