Slow Sunday Stitching #21
Here are some 3/4" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers that I recently made. I remove the papers after basting. My process is baste, press, remove papers, press again, store for later, make flowers, press again with Best Press. The batik fabrics make a great flat crease with the best press. I will have to try this on my regular fabrics so see how the pressing goes.
Here are some 7/8" English Paper Pieced Hexagon flowers. I take the pictures out on the patio table on a sunny day, in-between the snow storms. The background batik is a layer cake (10" x 10"), to give an indication of the size of the hexi flowers.
Have you been slow stitching on Sunday?
