Half a Hexie

On Saturday, I sat down with Doctor Who, cut into 3 yards of solid orange and blue, and taught myself how to make hexagons! I love this little guys! I find it so calming and relaxing to just sit and sew a straight little line. I’m planning on making this bigger and bigger until I’m tired of sewing these suckers together.

Earlier, I mentioned that I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to make anything of my Solids and Alligator flannel due to a fall out with the friend for whom this quilt was for. After a lot of thinking, I figured that continuing with this quilt will help in the healing process. Plus, if my friend and I ever make up, it will be ready and waiting for them.

These lonesome hexies wanted to say “hey!”

If I plan on making an entire quilt out of these hexies (which I’m guessing are about 2 inches), I’lll have to make a whole lot more! Cutting these thing out is so tedious to me… But I have Doctor Who to keep me company!

  1. The fist quilt I made was done with hexies. I had a job that gave me lots of spare ‘sitting’ time and my boss let me cut them out at work. 🙂 You’ve made a great start.
