I’m still using the glue basting method that I learned from Katja’s wonderful book, The New Hexagon. I hand stitched the center star, and completed the rest of the center and all the other rounds using invisible thread and a narrow zigzag.
It’s all about feeling good about your projects, isn’t it? This project was so far out of my comfort zone when I approached it with the notion of hand sewing. I never could have made a dent in it!
