Hexies

The past couple of weeks I've been focusing on my hexagon project inspired by Robyn's Great Hexagon Quilt Along.



I'm not sure what size this project will end up, but I want each hexagon to be different.  Kind of an adult "I Spy". 


One way to get 'more for your buck' is to find multiple prints on one cut of fabric, see below.






Other examples of getting more than one print from one cut of fabric:




I'm working on another little hexie project that should be done real soon.  I may even have a tutorial for it in a couple of days! Click here for the tutorial!

MEL! HOW CUTE!
I luv-luv-luv them. You clever girl, cutting all those hexies from one fabric... It's going to be a 'charmer'
I am getting back to my own hexies this week, embroidering your name next!
