Wondering how to finish the edge of your hexagon quilts?
Stitched by hand or by machine, the quilts made out of hexagons, with all those zig zag edges, need finishing (with or without binding) like any other quilt.
Here are 4 different ways to finish the edge of your hexagon quilts.
1. Straightening the edges
If you want the fastest (and easiest) method, this is the one. I finished my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt this way.
2. Hexagon edges
You need additional hexagons but no binding is necessary. Find the tutorial here on Badskirt. You will find a lovely idea for hand quilting too.
3. Hexagon edges but different as above
Stitched entirely by machine, no additional hexagons or binding needed; a faster method than the above one, with a different look on the back of the quilt.
Find the tutorial here on Sew Fearless.
4. Binding the hexagon edges
This technique is great for quilts pieced out of large hexagons. You will learn how to bind the hexagon edges.

4 different techniques to finish the edge of your hexagon quilts- it depends on the finished look you want for your quilt and how much time you have for the finishing step.
I hope that these ideas make your choice easier.
Happy sewing hexagons!
