Modern Hexagon Blocks
I spent some time today working on my Modern Hexagon quilt. I thought about appliquéing the hexagons onto the background by hand. But Modern Quilting to me = machine sewing. As long as it looks good, faster is better in my book!

To keep the hexagons in a straight row, I folded over the top edge of the block 3 inches and put in a finger press.

I am using a straight stitch at the very edge of the hexagon's margin. I thought it might be hard to so that close to the edge of the block, but it wasn't a problem.
