I have caught the hexie bug! I love making these English paper pieced 1" hexagons. I have been using scraps to make the rainbow of hexies below. Today I got these 2 1/2" mini charm packs from Fat Quarter Shop. I ordered on Friday and they were here today. FQS is always so fast!
This is my on-the-go hexie box. It's from Target. It was all the rage on Instagram along EPPers. It works great for working on hexies anytime. Baseball practice, in the car, everywhere. From left: hexies with glued paper templetes, Fons and Porter fabric glue stick, rainbow of completed hexies, white and aqua solid completed hexies, paper templetes, thread, needles and scissors.
When I first started, I printed out sheets of 1" templetes. But that gets tedious. So I very quickly went in search of one of these:
1" hexagon paper punch
I have used card stock, junk mail flyers, and cereal boxes to make the hexie templetes above. It makes the process so much easier.
I have just started working on a layout for a hexagon quilt. It's just so fun to see what I like with all that color.
