Hexagon Star

Class Description:
This is a low-key workshop for piecers wishing to expand their expertise by being more proficient in cutting and piecing 60 degree angles. These 6-point stars are really easier to piece than an 8-point star and they are strip-pieced.  The joining hexagons can be plain or pieced, rotary cut, or fussy cut, depending on the fabrics. This is a great quilt to use that collection of fat quarters in!
