I have a bit of a penchant for hexagons.
I have long admired Mandala's.
So I guess putting the three together was always going to happen at some point!! (Click on the photo's to see clearer details).
Then I pulled out the card leaving the tacking stitches to help hold the hexi in shape. I think if I did this again I would use a hole punch to punch a hole in the centre of each hexi template which would make it easier to flip my card hexies out, the 1/2 inch hexies were a little tricky to remove.
Next, I laid my hexies out until I was happy with the placement (I didn't rule anything, just did it by eye, I wanted it to look organic, also I couldn't be bothered ruling it up!!). Once happy, I put a few dots of Roxanne's Baste-it glue (fabulous stuff!) on the back of each hexie and glued them into place.
Here are my hexies all glued onto their background, ready to be quilted in place. Don't they look pretty on the clothesline?
My Liberty Hexie Mandala is around 24inches square. This is going to a friend in the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap. I will use a liberty fabric for the binding. Fun! xo
