I’ve Fallen Down the Rabbit Hole…

…So far that I may never get out! All because of these:

Hexies Scrap Fabric

 

You all know that I was looking for an easy and portable project to take with me on my visit with my mother-in-law. These little things seemed easy enough and are definitely portable.

I have been {quietly} drooling over all the wonderful hexie projects I’ve seen in the last year or so. I knew that one day I might try making these little odd shaped things, and this felt like the perfect time to start.

So I found some downloadable templates on the internet (get your own here), and read a couple of tutorials (this one was my favorite.) Last night I decided to make one — ONE — to see if this would be something I would like.

Stack of Completed Hexies

I think we can safely say I like making hexies. In fact, I really like making them.

I love how portable they are. I also really like that I can leave a few supplies on my end table and make a few here and there throughout my day.

This is definitely going to be a project that travels with me. I don’t know what I’m going to do with them yet, but I know inspiration will hit.

If you haven’t tried making hexies yet, I say go for it! They are so freakin’ fun!! 🙂

Linking up with Needle & Thread Thursday

    Really appealing fabrics, Beth! I’ve made hexies once for an art quilt and loved them. Perhaps I’ll join you in the rabbit hole in the near future!

    I have some squares and papers from a shop hop just waiting for my to give them a try. Hope I can get to them soon! Looks like you have some great fabrics there. I’m sure inspiration won’t take too long! 😉

  4. I have to say that I have not made any myself (yet) because I can *totally* see myself going down the rabbit hole big time! 🙂

    There is nothing like a juicy stack of hexies! Welcome to the rabbit hole! Hexies are addicting and you will soon be looking for many other shapes to play with!

    Well I think we both know I’m all about falling down a rabbit hole, wonderland is just around the corner. Your hexies look great. I’ve never made them before, but they sure do look fun. Keep up the good work and you will have enough for a large quilt soon.

    Beth looking forward to seeing what you make 🙂 they are addictive although I have sat mine aside for a little bit while I try to finish up something else

    Hi Beth! Your hexagons are beautiful! And you do them without passing the paper – great! I didn’t get mine steady like that and have to baste through the paper. Now I’m hooked with diamonds! x Teje

  9. These are cute! I’ve been thinking of hexies too. However, mine would be much bigger!

    I love the greens and oranges! I just started a La Passacaglia EPP project and it’s so nice to have a traveling project. Enjoy!
