Final Hexagon Prep Session!

I have spent my last day preparing the rest
of the white Hexagons for my quilt....... 
All cut, glued, traced and ready for stitching..... 
I have also basted the last of the blooms so from here on in it is just stitching, stitching & more stitching.....
Time to give my glue pen a hard earned rest *Grin*
Until next time, Happy Stitching

I just found this quilt and I'm wondering how you glue down the hexies. I can see them clamped together and I'm guessing the template is mylar rather than paper? WOuld a glue stick work?

They are looking wonderful Kate.
Michele - When I glued my hexagons I used the sewline fabric glue pen and many refills LOL with the run of the mill paper shapes. You use the glue on the back of the paper and fold the seam allowance onto it. I am unsure how a standard glue stick would react with the fabric or how hard it would be to remove it and the papers afterwards.
