HaveACuppa-webHalf or all day workshop featuring the latest in Jean Ann’s trim tools. Learn how to make easy overlapping seams while sewing this whimsical table runner. Choose a focus fabric for the center of each hexie that allows you to select and cut a 4″ hexagon for the center of each block. The project is perfect for a wall quilt or for a charming baby quilt. The Hexagon Trim Tool cuts 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ hexagons with precision. The tool features seam marking holes that allows the quilter to join the hexagons together by matching dot-to-dot to sew the gentle “Y” seams.
