What are you doing here, Chippie?
I have something to tell you!
You should go over to Tilde’s blog and see her great tutorial about how to piece Inklingo hexagons partly by machine and partly by hand.
It’s called “hybrid piecing” by Inklingo quilters. It’s great!
Friend to friend, here is a great tip!
A hexagon quilt can be fast AND portable with Inklingo!
Wow! I can relax and sew on the front porch and still finish fast!
Yes! Do the insets by hand for a wonderful, relaxing portable project.
We could sit here together.
It’s always more fun to be with friends.
Tilde sews hexagons in rows, some seams by machine, some by hand.
1. There are instructions for staying organized for hybrid piecing in The Inklingo Handbook (pages 85-88) and in the Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book (pages 45-48, free).
2. Use fine thread in the machine seams, so they will not be bulkier than the seams you piece by hand.
Printing the shapes with Inklingo makes it possible!
I could just kiss you for that!
And you know, except for the tiniest hexagons, all Inklingo shapes are suited to hybrid piecing!
Some are especially great, like Sunflower, Clamshell Pickle and Pickle Dish, because the arcs of triangles allow for continuous stitching by hand, and the gentle curves are easy to piece by machine.

I think you can tell how much fun it was to sit on the front porch yesterday!
The hexagons with the 0.25 inch seams are insane by any method, Patti! If you check the website, you will see that collection is the result of the inability to say no to a friend. LOL A moment of weakness. . .
Tilde’s hybrid piecing is excellent, but I still think my machine would eat some of the hexagons with the .25 inch seams…
Great tutorial! And wonderful pictures here of Monkey and Chippie! So cute! And so are the hexagons!!!!
Thanks Linda and Tilde!
Thanks so much for the great tips Monkey and Chippie. Looks like a lovely day on the porch for you all…and of course Linda too
