Create a patchwork quilt using large hexagons. Machine Quilting. Part 13
Allow in excess of 10cm backing fabric to surround your patchwork top. This will be trimmed later. My personal view is that its better to use more fabric than less.
In this instance to keep the layers together I have opted to do a singular machine embroidery stitch within each hexagon. I have chosen neutral colour thread front and back. Experiment before working on your patchwork to check machine tension through the layers. Try out different stitches. Explore those forgotten stitches on your machine.
Of course, if you may prefer to hand sew a decorative embroidery stitch, once in each hexagon. Add some texture by using crochet cotton, wool or other embroidery thread.
