Hexagons, still loving them!

I was asked to post some pictures of what to do with hexagons.

First, when I cover the papers, I cover 6 identical units so I can make 6 petal flowers, or 3+3 petal flowers, finally add a center of choice.  I really love these 1/2″ hexagons – that is the measurement along one edge.

When I had a pile of covered hexis (say a couple hundred or so) the fun began for me!

sorted to make flowers – can you say ‘fussy cut’ !!!

As you are covering hexagon papers to create flowers, be sure to cover papers with the path fabric you have chosen, the project also requires lots of path hexis, don’t wait, work on them as you are making the flowers.

I’ve assembled both layouts to make  doll quilts size quilts, however I haven’t added borders  to either, maybe this winter?  These are ‘no deadline’ projects – gotta love those!

I have a new hexi project underway (I can’t help myself), see my July 2nd Journal entry.

Also if you write ‘hexi’ or ‘Hexagon’ into the ‘search feature’ on my Journal page (blog), the posts come up where I blogged about hexis or hexagons.

There are lots and lots of hexagon eye candy on Pinterest, and also lots and lots of new new and vintage EPP (English Paper Piecing) quilts on Pinterest.

EPP or hexis are wonderful handwork and take along projects.  Join in the fun!

Happy Stitching!

    • Totally weird – I can see the two layout pictures on my computer – I see the question mark instead of the pictures when viewing on my iPad.
      I’m not techy enough to understand or fix it. Sigh. Gotta love technology!!!

  1. Same thing here – I can only see the first two pictures – argh! Is it hard to get the motifs centered for fussy cutting? Looks like we have the same exact needle case and mine is currently being used with MY hexie project too! LOL (can’t remember who I won it from, but I love it!)

  2. Where did you put your latest photos? Hope I can find them. Don’t you hate it when the computer doesn’t cooperate.
