I'm not sure how much longer I can call this a hexie obsession...there are just too many other shapes to play with besides the hexagons! When I finally get my Houston class photos posted you'll see that we played with the Bishop shape (called the jewel by paperpieces.com, which of course I have ordered!).
The Martingale catalog I found in Houston had this photo on the cover so I've started a little doll quilt with some of my Cherrywood scraps and the honeycomb papers. They have a very sharp angle on each end which I had to devise a way to deal with when basting. I do like that the Cherrywood fabrics don't seem to slip on the papers like some fabrics. Batiks also don't slip. I wonder if it has something to do with the hand/dye process? I think the catalog sample actually looks more like elongated hexies (I have some of those on order too!) altho the book is about using charm squares.
I even bought these kits at Houston which came with all kinds of shapes to make Texas wildflowers with. I hadn't planned on the pieces being so tiny but they are cut from recycled paper which is nice.
Don't worry tho - there are still hexies to be had everywhere!
