Hexarose


Cut 1 large and 1 small hexagon (about 1/2 the height of the large).  I again used Lori Holt's Hexie-Half rulers to cut these from 10" and 5" squares.
 

 Make a fold/pleat on one side of the large hexagon, the same width as the small.

Pin, then stitch that pleat down with a scant 1/4" seam allowance.

 Pleat and pin the remaining five sides to the small hexagon, leaving the basted side open.
 '
Stitch, using 1/4" seam allowance; pivoting at corners.

Clip corners then turn rose right side out through the opening.  Use a chopstick to smooth out the corners.  Fold raw edges in 1/4" and pin.

Hand-stitch opening closed, using a ladder stitch.

Pinch the middle of the large hexagon at the top.

Twist the excess folds down to the center of the hexagon.
Take a couple of stitches to anchor the center, plus a few more stitches to anchor the flower petals into place.  

Use the hexarose to embellish a bag or pillow; add as an accent on clothing or a headband. 


Ok, I think I may have gotten Hexagons out of my system by now.  But no... there's still a Hexie Meadow baby quilt in the works... more about that one later!  I'm already dreaming about the next set of rulers to play with: Tumblers!  What can we do with tumblers, I wonder...
