I've been hexed!

I have played with hexies, once before, but just didn't get hexed as most quilter's do.  But, I keep seeing pictures of cute hexi projects and gorgeous quilts.  So I thought I would give them another try. I didn't put to much thought into it, just decided to use some scraps and make some flowers. Who knows where this will go.  I am using card stock this time instead of paper and I think it makes basting the hexies much more enjoyable.
This is my travel project, so I put together this little kit with a box I used in my sewing room.  It has everything I need to baste or sew the hexagons together. So everytime we jump in the car and head to town or take a trip it comes with me.  I am really surprised at the results of  fitting in a few minutes here or there makes.  Now I just need to keep at it and someday just  maybe  there will be enough for a a quilt.

  1. Hehe, in my experience hexis are addictive! And isn't it satisfying to be able to do some stitching in what is usually 'waste time'?! Hope you enjoy the journey :-)

    1. It is a bit contagious! I'm kind of liking that I have no plan to direction just using scraps and a black solid to surround them. It will fun to lay them all out one day and decide how to assemble them.
