Well the strips are laying on my machine and I've ordered "that" ruler. Should be here in a day or two so my hexies can get into the pool and play too!

Oh man, it's coming along! It's fun to see the same pattern in so many different fabrics all at once.

Oh, yes! I have been admiring these beauties! I am determined that tonight is the night for me to get started! If only we didn't have to have dinner EVERY night! It really gets in the way of my after work sewing. Sheesh!

Fun! Personally, I like those hexagons a lot more than the little ones that are pieced together. I know those are very popular, too, though. I love the fabrics in the first picture especially.

Oooh, so wonderful. Loving this way of making hexagons. Going to have to give this a try. I am wanting one of those 60 Degree Double-Strip Rulers by Creative Grids. Definitely my next purchase. Thanks Julie for introducing me to this great tool.

Jackie said...

Gotta love those hexies! Easy to piece...

Chelsea said...

Ooh so pretty!

Sally said...

These all look great! Really wish I could participate in this, but it just can't happen for me right now. I'm definitely following along, though and may try this at a later point.

Jewel said...

I am loving this so much! I have two sets made and cut out... they are like potato chips... can't do just one.

Quilting Mom said...

They are very kool! I am interedted in seeing how to sew them together, then how to join the hexagons.

Karin said...

Sooo excited about joining in on the fun! Just one question? How large will the finished project be? Just wondering whether I ought to snatch 2 jellyrolls! Thank you!

I love seeing all your glorious quilts and the beautiful fabrics you buy. Since I am just beginning to quilt, (slowly and carefully) and you inspire me, I gave you an award. I hope you don't mind. It's posted on my blog.

Thanks!

I like these hexes waaaaay better than the little ones. Although the little ones ARE handy for a take-along project.
