Helou, those are lovely. I have not seen hexies used like that before. Too small or not they make a beautiful project.

Thank you WMUTeach
Well I have a problem loll
I get bored doing the same pattern over and over (except making the hexies of course) so... I try to combine different patterns in one to keep interested. All I can say is that I am sure there is more to come loll

I love hexies - the small ones anyway. I just completed a large queen size 5" hexie quilt. I would show it but I can't seem to post pixs anymore - I've tried everything. Mine are all more bright springy fabrics, a lot have flowers. It looks great but I will never never ever tackle large hexies sewn on the machine again. Hated those Y seams. I do small projects with the small hexies and enjoy the hand sewing of them. Love the look of yours.

I am not doing one now but as you can see from my Avatar I made a King Size GMFG a number of years ago. It was all made by hand and hand quilted.
Have fun with your quilt.

I think I would applique them on to squares and make a wall hanging. They would brighten up any room. Now I want to make Owls.

Hexies are my fav past time. Though I don't run a stitch through the paper piece, to me it's not needed and that's just more work to undo later. Hope to see it finished.

All of the above hexies are beautiful. My hands can't do hand work anymore.

It really is addictive! I did a hexie scrappy a few years ago and I would come home from work every day and work on it. It was a great wind down from my day.

I love the owls!! So cute!
