You will sew the strips around the centre hexagon, and use the Hexagon Round template to trim the strips as you work. If you're not confident with your seams, you can cut slightly wider strips and also trim across the top of the template as you add the strips in steps 3–6. 3 Sew…

I’ve been quilting for six years now, and it took me the better part of five of those years to finally get a grasp of how to work with scraps. My old method of dealing with them was a bit of an “out of sight, out of mind” approach. I’d toss them in a storage bin, pat myself on the back for not wasting money by tossing them in the trash instead and then promptly ignore them. Over time…
