HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 11/17/13

Sew...I clearly wasn't paying attention to the calendar when I posted my latest hexie ventures last Thursday. There was no way to make any more progress to schedule today's post so I'm going to share the "dream" for my next project...

Remember the Civil War Scraps I got in Gettysburg?


Well...I have been wanting to make this pattern from paperpieces.com for eons and I think this is the perfect opportunity.

I bought some of this deep purple for the 3" tumblers and I'll use the scraps for the 1" tumblers. I'll have to do some fussy cutting for the 1" tumblers - the pieces just aren't that big. I am thinking of a table runner (for now) so that won't use many scraps but oh well...I'm sure I can find other projects to make with them!

OK - sew now it's your turn to share a hexie project. We look forward to seeing any EPP shape and the project can be a dream like mine, a current or finished project or even an antique you found somewhere. Just make sure you link to a specific post or you link might disappear and we don't want that!

I am quietly collecting a few Civil War repros for a Dear Jane. Looking forward to seeing your 1" tumblers.

Whewie! 1" tumblers is a challenge! I can't wait to see this come together -- your fabric is lovely!! :)
