I have also tried a couple of more adventurous foundation pieced combinations like this one.
I am not 100% comfortable with the hand-sewing but I am getting there. I used to hand sew all the time but I am out of practice and my fingers and eyes are 15 years older. Until I am really in the swing of it again I thought I would cut out some of the small hand-stitching within the larger shapes by machining some pieces of fabrics together. I have done several strip combinations and this is one of the finished hexies.
As I have marked out my shapes on the 60' triangle paper then it will be easy to line up the machined combination to ensure it comes out right. Fingers crossed.
