A slightly different use of the hexagon shape to create this 3D illusion.
Hexagons can be rotary cut
Hexagons are a traditional favourite and are enjoying a revival; in this workshop Valerie shows you how to rotary cut this shape (with the help of a special template to keep you safe !) plus how to applique the shapes onto the cushion.
You can piece by hand
While you can work this pattern by hand in the traditional way with papers you will need to prepare the strips with the help of a sewing machine – just remember that you need three tones of colour (light, medium and dark)
Avoid the birds nest on the back
