Hexie Project

Well, did another hexie project (3/4") EPP with papers from http://www.paperpieces.com/

These are the same size and the ones I WON!!!  Getting 100 paper hexies from http://quiltingreadersgarden.blogspot.com/ because I remembered to 'link up' last week.  Isn't she a darling????  Guess I'll do that again!  I'm delighted since I used up so many of the ones I had making up little 'kits' with hexies (with hole punched out of middle for easy removal) and fabric squares so friends could get addicted too......Best project for working on waiting in doctor's or dentist office!  Good for doing while watching TV too!

Hexie projects I'm working on

Apple Blossom is a pattern from Paper Pieces that I'm doing in 1930s repro. Have all the EPP parts done, just need to applique the flowers, vine and leaves to borders and then stitch all parts together.  don't know why this got set aside......

This one is for another quilt with a medallion of scrappy squares on point, framing border and then 28 scrappy 'flowers' around the larger border.  Lots of fun.  Oh yes, these are 1" hexies.  Have another EPP project I'm doing with 3/4" (30s repros ) for Grandmother' Garden.
 
Then there's the 'tuna can' hexies (round fabrics, folded and stitched to make hexies.  This one will be done eventually since it doesn't need batting or backing (see pic #2 for 'back')
