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