    back to working on 5" hex's

    i had to set my 5" hex block project aside for a couple months while i worked on a couple commission wool quilts- finally finished them and am back to hand stitching hex's again...here's the first 2 i've made since October.
    many more to come- i am still using up scraps of pinks, black & whites for all of these.

    I love these! What pattern is that? I have some gorgeous B&W fabric. Never considered pairing with pink. Yummy!

    these have been an on=going group project for months---go to the pictures section - search for english paper piecing, hex project to see the 40+ done before these 2---i had to set them aside mid-October to work on a commissioned wool quilt- now i am back at them-
    they are a group project from 'The Quilt Pattern Magazine' that was one of our projects last year- the magazine is an on line magazine you can subscribe to- then you become a free member of a group that does a number of free group projects through out the year- bom's, applique projects---the hex project had 3 new blocks (a beginner, intermediate & advanced) each month- then as participants posted pictures of finished blocks the designer posted new blocks that were not offered in the magazine- we are still making them- posting pics, she is still giving us new blocks- one participating member just finished 100 blocks- and is going to start putting them together---i have somewhere between 47& 50 blocks done (i think) just getting back at them- all of mine are made with pink, black & white scraps.
