Awww....so pretty. The hexies are so striking. I really want to learn how to make hexies but I must learn how to quilt first.

I am in love with hexagons. Can't wait to see your tutorial, I just got started making mine. Love the fact that it uses up scraps, plus I think they are adorable, my family things I'm crazy though :)
