Are you wondering what happened with my big chunky hexagons? Here they are in a very raw state. Strings everywhere and not even pressed yet (they will be pressed open). I probably should have pressed as I went, but once I sat down I just kept going. This method requires a little bit of a hokey pokey dance at the machine and I didn't want to get confused.
I'm machine piecing them. Yes machine... piecing... hexagons. My friend Ruth showed us this technique at the last Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We didn't make a video of Ruth, but I'm starting to think we should have! Luckily, another quilter already thought of that. Here is a video tutorial by Lady Havartine:
