HeLP for Hexie-aholics
Since y'all know that I am a certified Hexie-aholic (which is extremely different from being certifiable) it shouldn't surprise you that I immediately signed up for Mickey Depre's Craftsy class when it went live this week - I mean it was half price and it does have 2 new pieced hexie designs!!
And that also meant I had to immediately go home and start making some samples...starting with the paddle.
As usual there are multiple layouts and they can be modified even more by playing with fabric placement. I even came up with another new layout altho I am sure there are still more to discover. My favorite is in the middle.
You are probably thinking that these colors are pretty wild but they are based on this FQ that my dear friend Denise gifted me some time back.
After finding this layout while perusing a magazine last night I've decided to make a 18" block with the hexie flower in the middle. Won't this make a great catmat/dollquilt/table topper?!
PS - since yesterday was National Quilting Day it was also my two year hexi-versary ;^)
PPS - Mickey released another Pieced Hexie Star yesterday - be sure to check it out!
