Hexagons

I have had a friend ask me how I do my Hexagons. I can't seem to upload this pix to my e-mail so I thought I would just post it on my blog. I have to baste the fabric to the little papers and then sew them all together. Once that is done I then take out the papers. So easy, a little more time consuming, but the only way I can keep the design to look like hexagons. Have fun with it!

It really is addictive and very portable. :D

question since I'm still very new to applique and such....
once papers are basted and the pieces are sewn together, the papers are removed. Got that much. BUT, how do you remove the papers? Isn't it sewn (or partially sewn) to the fabric?
I've done one applique using the papers (basting over the edge of the freezer paper), but by the time I needed to remove it, I had sewn over/through/and a bit around the paper, therefore not being able to remove all of it.
Thanks for any post as a response (hint-hint)

Thanks for posting the pics with the various stages of your hexagons! I understand alot better now, seeing the back of them! And then to take the paper out, you just take out the basting stitches, right?
It looks like your hexagons are 1 inch? The ones I got, to start with, are 2 inches.
Hopefully my charm packs will come in the mail tomorrow, so I can get started! :o))))

Hexagons are wonderful and paper piecing them keeps them so accurate.

I love this pattern. I have always wanted to make my hexies this way but never got around to it.
