One of the questions I have been asked a lot is "What does the back look like". There have been many questions about my seam allowance, glue basting versus thread basting and lots more.
Here is a pic of the back of one of my Hexes. I find the 1/4 in seam allowance on the templates that I have been cutting is plenty for my paper piecing. I am glue basting and if you have any trouble with the glue not releasing from the papers there may be a couple of things you can do. Firstly make sure you are not using to much glue. Glue on the paper (not the fabric) but not too close to the edge. If you can't release the fabric from the paper try ironing the shape to "relax" the glue. The steam will help release the paper and fabric.
With all the Large Hexagons now finished it is time to work on the smaller Hexies. These are great fun and I have tried to work out which colours I need to add more of and add more of those fabrics in.
Which is your favourite Hexie so far? Who else is making a Smitten?
