Quick update on Part 4. Creating rosettes.
|Arrange hexagons into rosette|
|Select centre hexagon (1) and one outer hexagon (2) Sew together|
|Add third hexagon and sew (2 to 3)|
|Instead of breaking thread, create a loop. Secure with 2 or 3 stitches at each end, and take the needle to join (1) and (3)|
Hope the above demonstrates in a clearer fashion.
The design process continues. So many options and variations. The only way to achieve your happy combination is to lay the hexagons out and keep looking at them. The two photos below demonstrate the dilemma. I am not happy with either. Needs lots more thought and rearranging. I also plan to make more leaf rosettes as they tone the overall look down.
Patchwork paper templates can be purchased from www.patchworktemplates.com 10cm hexagons have been used in this work.
Part 6. will continue with the design process.
