This week’s meeting was a workshop on traditional English paper patchwork. The aim of the workshop was to make a flower out of seven hexagons. I was leading this workshop as many people were interested in the hexagon patchwork I have been doing for the last couple of months.
To save time on the night, I had already prepared the fabric and paper hexagons in good old Blue Peter fashion; cutting out all the fabric and paper can take quite a while. We used up a little more of the fabric from the club’s Giant Stash!
The workshop went very well, and everyone managed to make a flower:
If anyone who didn’t make it to the workshop wants to have a go, I’d advise you to check out one of the many tutorials available online, such as this very clear and well presented tutorial. This includes a handy link to printable hexagon templates so you don’t need to spend an age drawing the perfect hexagon before you can get started!
