Hello

My name is Christine and I have very quickly become addicted to making hexies. 


I am using red, pink, white and green fabrics to make my quilt. 
 

It has been fun looking through my stash for suitable fabrics.


I am cutting just 7 hexagons from each fabric 

 
... one for a centre and six for petals.

This week I tried some fussy-cutting and was delighted with the flowers that resulted.



I am really looking forward to the next issue of Vignette.

HAPPY STITCHING                      CHRISTINE

Your hexies are beautiful Christine, especially the fussy cut ones. You have made good progress too. I too can't wait for Vignette 3 and seeing the finished quilt- plus all the other goodies. Happy stitching.

Your colors are so pretty! Your project is so organized...it fun the way you have seperated them. =). I need to get out an old hexie project I have and organize it better. Maybe it will energize me to work on it again after 15 years!
