What a waste of time. Piece the hexies the usual way..easier and quicker.

I learned how to do this from this site but I've gone on to tweak it for easier handling for myself I first used the paperclip but had issues with it due to my arthritis So then I went to my stash of Wonder Clips Bingo I fold one of the bias sides down first and clip it with the clear flat side towards me Then I fold the next corner in snugly use Clip on it repeat for the next corner with Clip I fold the third corner down remove the clip from the bias side for the third corner Sew as the tutorial shows removing the clips as I come to them When finished with the sewing the side that does not have a thread crossing it is a bias edge and it makes it very easy to remove the cardstock template after insertion into the quilt I particularlyRead More like the method of sewing the hexs together When I used a plain whipstitch the thread always seemed to show up on the right side I now use either a pale gray or dark ivory color thread and it seems to blend quite well using the stitch technique shown here I'm in the process of making a GFG using hexs
