Hexies!!!

So...I considered showing you pictures from our guild meeting this week but I worried you might think I was off my hexie rocker. I'll show you the guild meeting next week...Joan Ford, of Scrap Therapy fame, gave a trunk show. I was inspired enough to cut up some scraps when I got home - I'm behind, as usual.


I stitched the center of this star at my conference back in April - it just took 3 weeks to finally get around to adding the diamonds. This really is not my high priority project but I haven't worked on the HPP for several weeks now. Hopefully after I catch up on 2 hexie SAL projects this weekend I can get back on track.


This is my progress on block #3 from Karen's Value Proposition QAL - 9 more hexies to go. I think it's turning in to my least fav of the three and thru no fault of the design: I probably should have fussy cut the plaid and the outer rust isn't 100% on with the inner rust hexies. I don't dislike it enough to redo it and I think when all 22 blocks are done it won't stick out amongst all my scrappiness...I just should have planned better before cutting into my scraps.

A great star. Those other hexies are not easy to say something about. I'll come back when you've joined the rest of the hexies.

Do you EVER get tired of EPP? Just wondering. I love the projects, but get tired of the stitching in about half an hour. : )

I think those musical notes is my favorite so far!

You are making progress on your salt and pepper quilt. Your VP block looks great! I love rust and blue is the perfect complement!

I think the randomness of the plaid makes it interesting. It may be different after all pieces are added. This is a learning experience---don't over think it!! Not every block has to be the star
