I finished piecing these larger hexies together.
I glue basted the hexies, so when it was time to remove them, I placed a damp towel on top.
I let it sit for an hour and they all came out easily.
Then I pressed the whole thing, keeping the seam allowances turned under.
Time for the black felt!
I didn’t know about that trick for removing papers. Thanks!
So that’s the trick! I always stitch the papers because I didn’t know how to remove the glued in kind. You are clever! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the tip about the damp towel. Your project is so homey and “comfortable.”
Your Hexies lok great. Thanks for the towel tip!
Coming along! In the quilt history book I recently read it talked about hexie and other EPP projects that seem to have intentionally left the papers in, possibly as a substitute for batting because it would add warmth. I think the wool will be much less crinkly.
That’s a wonderful idea on getting the papers out easier! I love the hexies on the black background! Hugs,
I always wondered the trick of removing glue baste, thank you for this tip! Beautiful hex logic!
Thanks for the tip on removing the papers after glue basting! Cute little gathering of hexies, Katy!
