Oooh Hexie Baby! Catch these fun little hexies as they tumble off your workspace. You will create fun six-sided baby blocks using the Hex-A-Ma-Jig template and the time saving technique of strip piecing will simplify this time-honored favorite.  The template makes for easy cutting and accurate piecing with no “Y” seams. You will be doing the “JIG” with Debbie as she guides you to stretch your imagination and helps you to master this new piecing technique. Bring your own fabric, see supply list for details.
