This week we are beginning to make the coral hexagon flowers that are found in the outer edges of our quilt. For the next few steps we will be making 5 flowers per week. I have used a scrappy combination of all the coral prints in my stacker. The flower centres use the navy hashtag.
To get started you will need your Sue Daley Sewline Glue Pen, Milliners Needles, Rotating Mat, Superior Bottom Line Thread and 3/4″ Hexagon papers and acrylic template. All of these supplies can be purchased through your favourite Sue Daley Stockist. If you are just joining in, my first Rose of Kaleigh blog post has the full requirements list and link to a grid layout of the quilt. You can view this here.
From the coral fabrics:
30 – 3/4″ Hexagons
From the navy hashtag fabric:
5 – 3/4″ Hexagons
Using my glue pen method, prepare your shapes. Start from the centre and build your way out to complete the block as shown below. If you are new to EPP, you can download a set of my instructions here, or visit my youtube channel to watch my tutorials.
I hope you are enjoying this process. Please tag me (@suedaleydesigns) and use the #roseofkaleighsal hashtag if posting on social media so I can see your progress!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
