HeLP for Hexie-aholics

Hello and welcome to another rousing edition of Hexie Linky Party for Hexie-aholics!!! We're all here to check out your hexie projects. It doesn't matter if your project is vintage, a WIP or even still just a dream, we would love to see it.


My most recent finish was block #2 (on the left) for Karen's Value Proposition SAL. I told Karen this week that I had never wanted to do a Grandmother's Flower Garden because it was just too repetitive and plain for me. This project is anything but repetitive and as much as I already have a gazillion projects to work on, I am definitely glad I joined in this one..


I'm typing this post on Friday and she has just posted block #3 where I will be using one of these fabrics to keep the dark teal theme going. Only 4.5 hours left until I can go home and pick out the rest of the fabrics. And given the weather (49F and raining/flooding) it's a good night to stay inside and sew...


I also finally finished my first POTC block. The cream around the outside is part of the sashing. I found a Pinterest pin that suggested an easy way to add part of the sashing as you go along so it's not such a big deal later. As soon as the square papers arrive, I'll actually be adding the red squares to 2 sides of this block.

Ok, peeps, now it's your turn to share a hexie project - and please know that I mean any EPP project, not just actual hexagons. Please remember to link to a specific post and not your blog in general. I can help you link if you like.

That's a great tip on the POTC sashing pieces. I shall pass it on to a friend who is making one.

Love your hexies and your POTC block. I am in a 12-month swap for the POTC and we have been making great colour combo.
