A.) Cut 2 of your Half Hexie template shapes from each layer cake piece
(I only used the dark fabric and left the lighter ones for my scrap bin)
Background fabric will go on 3 sides of each of your template pieces,
you'll need to cut 1.5" strips from your yardage, then subcut into 5" and 7"
B.) each half hexie will need 2- 1.5x5" for the sides
C.) and 1- 1.5"x7" piece on top.
First sew the two side pieces on and trim off extra to be the same as the template, then sew the top piece on and trim extra, video below will explain in more detail. Wondering what machine I'm using? Here is a link to my exact Juki model, I have had this machine for about 12 years now, I LOVE it!!! I usually arrange them on the floor or you can use a design wall, then stack each row in the order you picked, take them to the sewing machine and zoom, zoom, sew your rows, then attach all the rows.
