    Hexie WIP

    I have been working on this for a couple years whenever I need a hand project. It is my first EPP project. I started out making the small flower units for a different project. The project decided not to happen, and this one insisted on happening.
    I have decided I LOVE EPP, and I am already planning my next project.
    This is all .5 inch hexies. In one of the pictures I put a quarter on the top for scale.
    I was going to wait until it was finished to post pictures, but decided to share now since 'done' might be a couple more years away!
    I am debating between professional LA quilting and learning to hand quilt. I am afraid hand quilting might push 'done' into the next decade!!

    It's going well. Keep us posted.

    I'm working on hexies using many of those same fabrics. It's fun to see how someone else chooses to use the fabric and how different the projects can look.

    That is exciting...can't wait until you finish it...I am working on one too...i go in spurts with how much I work on it. Not really in a big hurry since I want to keep something around for hand work. Love yours!

    Good grief, it's going to be stunning. In fact it is now. I love the different size and shape flowers. Great idea! This is my favorite pattern but I've not made one yet. I rescued a top from ebay a few months back and hope to hand quilt it. Like your comment, it will probably take me years to quilt it but right now I'm practicing hand quilting on some other tops until I get good enough to start the rescue piece. I hope you will continue to post pictures of your progress.

    That is way cool!!!! I like the way you change up the design. I've been debating on trying my hand at one it but so far I haven't. Maybe your pretty piece will get me going. I just got rid of most of my scraps because I had so many but newer ones are made ever day here and this sort of project just might help in keep the scrap bucket down.

    Thanks for sharing and give great inspiration!!!

    You've already spent so much time making the top that I would invest some more time to hand quilt it. Use it as your take along hand quilting project and you will have a masterpiece to be proud of!

    This is beautiful! I am working on one too for my grand daughter. (She is 4 but will probably be 10 before I finish.)

    Ohhhhhh my !! It's beautiful. Such patience making those small hexies. I enjoy making them, but don't think I'd have THAT much patience. Please, keep us posted on your progress.
