So these days I am finding myself sitting in the car rider line and in various doctor's offices and therapy clinics twiddling my thumbs. I made up a couple kits filled with hexagons to keep nearby and they're multiplying! I'm really enjoying making these & wondering why I ever stopped. The ones below will be appliqued onto purses or bags or something. I've started a new secret project of hexagons that I'll finish sometime this fall. After that, I am pretty sure I'm going to start on a quilt of 1 inch hexies with no repeats. Won't that be a fun project!?! Will do them at random first in rows (like the last picture below) and then stitch them together. All by hand. And I'm not in a hurry to finish it. Might take me years, but that's ok. 1 inch ones are a good size for a quilt, I think. To me, the 2 inch ones are a little big. Yes, they'd go faster, but I like the look of the small hexagons because they're dainty. I'm always drawn to geometric designs. These it so nicely into that category. Making hexagons used to take me a LOT longer but now I'm getting quicker and more efficient. I use applique pins (they're tiny and sharp) to hold the paper in place until I get a couple corners basted. I like this method more than glue sticks or other techniques. Are you guys making hexies these days? If not, think about joining me! Let's get inspired!
