Fabric Folded and Twisted Hexagon Flowers



 I have been teaching Fabric Folded Flowers or Twisted Hexagon Flowers as they are also know this week and everyone who has tried them, now really appreciates the skill and time it takes to get them looking even. Once learnt they are real fun and if you join them together they make a great fabric interest for bags, wallhangings and quilts. The trick is to start with a good quality cotton fabric and make sure you iron the folds in the right places. It does take practice and as I say to my students who are making anything for the first time, "don't be so hard on yourself. How many of those have you made?" It takes practice before you get any skill. Enjoy making and to see some my students have made click HERE.http://quilterscottagenorfolk.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/folded-and-twisted-hexagon-flowers.html
