    Wink My Current Hand Piecing Project

    Everyone has been so nice about my GFG quilt, I thought I would share my current hand piecing project. ckcowl (a member here on the board) posted pictures a few months back of some hexies she was making. Each finished hexie was made up of several different shapes...I got excited!!

    So far I have completed 5 and I cut out 2 more tonight. I'm not sure yet how i will incorporate them into a quilt, but I keep thinking about those star quilts where the designer takes a very traditional patten, turns it on its head and then adds a sprinkling of stars..like glitter! We shall see where it ends up!

    Very nice hexies. I look forward to seeing your finished quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    ​Pretty hexes! Blue and white is always a nice colour combo.

    Pretty and interesting, too! Thanks for the pictures. It's the first time I've seen hexies done this way.

    these are turning out Beautifully! and will make a wonderful 'starry' quilt! I started putting mine together by adding triangles to the sides- making them into 6 pointed stars. I need to get back to that project soon- maybe my winter (blahs) project. your blocks encourage me to get back to mine
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Ckcowl, I was hoping you would chime in! I was hoping to pick your brain on setting solutions. I was considering the setting triangles, was wondering if you could do some sort of sashing(I think this would be difficult), am considering using half-hexies on the sides so I can join them with regular little hexies to creat an overall design. Decisions, decisions.

    Beautiful blues! A great way to chase away the wintery "blues."
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Love them!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
