Finishing CQ Blocks

I've finished twelve of my 22 CQ-Hexagon blocks this summer! It's always such a job to get one embellished. All summer long I've been promising to show how I finish these off by adding the backings. 
 
Finally I took enough photos of the process to write a tutorial. However, it is long...so rather than just put it here...I created a PDF document for you. 
 
  Here is a link to the pdf Tutorial on Finishing CQ Blocks, specifically written for the Hexagon Blocks...but the instruction will work with any shape or size of block you choose to make.
Enjoy your stitching!
Hugs,!

There is SO much loveliness there, Kathy! I couldn't pick one favorite if I tried, though I really love that tree center. Together, there is just too much beauty. I can't imagine what another 10 will be!

Thank you for this Kathy - it will go in my files for the day that I get going on my planned hexxie project. At least it's on my to-do list, but who knows when it will get to-done!!
