    I've been wanting to try a small project using hexies...never done them before. Found this on line and just finished it this evening.

    I'm finally sewing again. Here is my mug rug in progress. I am using 1 1/4" pieced squares. they are Kansas Dugouts made with my shortcut method.

    I'm thinking it will be a center of the mugrug about 6" finished. then maybe add strips to the sides to make it rectangular. I was going to piece the whole thing but thought maybe the strips or some other addition might be more interesting. I'll figure that out after I get the center quilt block finished.

    THis is only 2/3rd of the center,. I still need to sew together more blocks for the other third.

    I am a miniaturist and 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" are my most common sizes used. I also use 1" pieced squares as in HSTs and Boston Blocks for things like keychains and magnets.

    I've gotten out of the groove and now I'm trying to get back to doing what I do best.

    Oksewglad I'm still thinking AAQI and I do want to do some for them.

    Oh Rhonda you are too late on the AAQI. They quit taking registrations for all quilts on Aug 1st. I thought I was going to get a couple more done but that didn't happen. AAQI is an all volunteer organization and it was getting too much for the volunteers to keep doing.

    Thanks Rhonda, the hexies are 1" the box is about 1 3/4" tall. So far it's been a thread catcher beside my living room chair.....someone at my guild meeting last nite suggested chocolate! I had no specific purpose in mind when I made it, I just wanted to see if I could do it.

    I didn't realize it was that small! A friend of mine in France came across some 3/4" paper hexs and sent them to me. I haven't used them yet but would be fun to try! Some day I will LOL

    I'm hitting the "like" button. OBTW--do you have a smudge on your camera lens--thought I saw a fuzzy spot on your recent pics? Ask me how I know to look for them!!!

    Thanks Carrot When I was adding the strip sets on the ends I didn't think I was going to like it. but when it was done I decided it was okay. I use alot of repeat sections for my checkbook cover and eyeglass patterns so I was first going to piece the whole thing with KDs and then I thought sashing with the last row or two repeated on the ends and then I decided to use these strips. The strip sets were already made. My friend Dorothy works for me and she made them some time ago.

    G the problem with the pic is due to my lighting. I dont have good lighting especially at night. I took this at 4 am and even if I did it during the day it would't look any better, this is a camcorder and it takes pics but the quality leaves something to be desired when the lighting is not outdoors. If I had waited and taken it outdoors somewhere the pic wouldn't have that streak of faintness.

    I'd like to get a reg camera but can't right now. I got the camcorder because I have been working on trying to put together some video tutorials. but I need to buy some lighting before I can do ones good enough to put on youtube.
