Appliqué comes next, making a wonderfully unique hexie daisy pattern throughout the project. Learn how to English paper piece, join individual pieces, and join rows. Make half hexagons to give a finished look. Sashing strips in several varieties and trapunto add depth and texture.

Can I make a wall hanging and/or a tablerunner?Yes. Instructions are provided for both. When you finish your project, let us see what you have made by posting a picture of it on this website!
What is the advantage of doing a class that has so much handwork?In general, the average person spends over forty-five minutes a day waiting. While we should refrain from making hexies at the traffic light, this is a wonderful project to pull out at the doctor’s office, before the big game begins, or just while watching TV. Cheryl even shares tips for making this project so portable that your hexies are not falling here and there as you move it from place to place. You may actually find yourself looking for opportunities to wait!
If I have never even made a hexie, will I be able to complete the project?Yes! But be warned—making these little hexies can be addictive! Cheryl is very adept at describing her process every step of the way and the close-ups of the hand stitching are amazing. You’ll be able to see and understand everything Cheryl is doing. However, if you have a question, feel free to ask!
What if I have questions?We recommend that you watch the class in its entirety and become familiar with any downloadable materials. At that point, if something is unclear, go to the tab that allows you to ask a question and Cheryl will get back with you. Please do not contact instructors by telephone.
When can I start the class?We know you are excited to get started. After you have purchased the class, you can enjoy it anywhere and anytime you have Internet. The class belongs to you, so watch it as many times as you like!
