For so long, I have been wanting to attempt a hexagon quilt. I am not sure what about hexagons intrigue me…but they do. So…last year when I ran into some charm packs on sale at Craftsy, I knew that it would be the right fabric for my hexagons!
I just love this fabric! It’s Curiosities by Nancy Halvorson for Benartex. So…last night I decided to break out my hexi template and start cutting.
At first, I thought “Oh wow, this is gonna take me forever.” And because I am a new quilter (sort of) I didn’t think that charm packs are probably not the best cut of fabric for hexagons. But whatever. I ended up cutting them in stacks….and I cut 4 charm packs (40 pieces each).
I love this fabric!
160 hexies cut!
And because I am crazy about not wasting anything, I saved the itty bitty scrap pieces.
My friend Melissa, who I talked about in the great big friendship blog, and who is super creative herself, has agreed to make a ticker tape canvas for my bathroom. I got the idea from Crazy Mom Quilts blog post, which you can see here.
Also, I have put together (finally) my list of UFOs, WIPs, and upcoming projects.
