Hexed!

Oh dear.  I have a new addiction.  Paper piecing and Mini Charm Packs.  I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time, and decided it would be a good project for while I’m here with Mom.

I love how easy it is to do.  It’s a perfect project to keep my hands busy while visiting or watching TV.  And I did squeal (several times!) at all those corners lined up so perfectly!  I have never ever been able to do that with regular patchwork techniques.

When I get home, I’m going to sew this piece to a rectangle of linen to make another kitchen cloth.

Because I was out of little squares and jonesing for more, I had to run to the store!  I need some more ideas of what to do with my hexies.  I found this and this on Pinterest.  And I’m already dreaming of making a quilt!  I need to rein it in and focus on a few small projects first:)  Do you have any ideas for me?  What have you made with hexies?

  1. I am absolutely nuts about those little blue hexies! So glad you are enjoying them so much! My favorite two projects using hexies so far: a mini quilted tree skirt for my mini tree using fabrics left over from making advent calendars with Diane AND making a hexie pillow from fabric I created using sun painting and ferns. The possibilities are endless and so are the different shapes you can get to know through English Paper Piecing!

    1. Thanks Pam! I am having so much fun with these! I do plan to move on to other shapes soon. I saw a dresden plate design and a bird that was super cute!
