    I also do hexies but not continuous, like on again off again. Your quilt is wonderful.

    Very pretty! I have never tried hexes, but lately there seems to be more people posting hexes pictures. Maybe I'll have to give it a try.

    How did you do the back? What size are your hexies? This quilt is adorable and I think you have pushed me over the Hexie edge. I want to make one and start it right this minute!

    Thanks for all compliments! For the back, I wanted the edges to keep hexie shape instead of cutting straight edge, so I researched different ways to do this. Found one where you actually make the outline of the outside hexies, then sew them right sides together, then flip them over onto your backing. The size of these hexies are actually 1 and 1/4 because I used a 1 inch template, but with seam allowance. Was drawing them by hand onto poster for templates, now I bought the punch, much easier and quicker! You have been warned, they are addictive!
