The repeat is less than 14" across and 6" wide so that only 20cm (8") fabric has produced eight different fussy cut flowers. Yippee. Much better than some fabric where a hexagon can be cut every 60cm due to the pattern repeat.
I don't do that.
A 5/8th" hexagon cut from template plastic is useful to try to cut the exact same piece of pattern 6 times. A permanent marker guides me to place the plastic so a pencil line can be drawn on the reverse of the fabric. After a while the black lines get confusing so I have to wash them off.
I have discovered that ethyl acetate (nail polish remover without the acetone) does a great job of removing the permanent black marker. Next problem: how to remove black marker without also removing nail polish!
Since I have a basket full of white gloves, I have been using them. You could just as easily wear washing up gloves I suppose.
It is hoped that the fussy cut flowers will appear somewhere in "Hexagonia" . Yes, It has been in the dark recesses of the quilterie cupboard, but recently it has seen the light of day while I have been travelling.
