Jolly Jungle Hexagon Pillow
Then they are all hand sewn together. I love to do this and I just enjoy the process.
I love hand piecing. I feel you have so much more control over joining up corners accurately. However, it takes a long time and I enjoy machine piecing too because you can make such big things quickly. I just really want to improve my machine piecing skills.
On this jungle pillow I didn't bind the edge. I did my usual trick of doing essentially a french seam. I sewed the front to the back with the right sides together. Then I turned it right side out and sewed around the edge about 0.25" in from the edge and you have what looks a little like piping.
