The basic premise was to baste 2 mini charm packs onto 3/4" hexies. Another 2 packs were sewn together as the background. After sandwiching, the hexies were then quilted onto the background in a crosshatch pattern.

Not bad for a 5-day project, huh? I hope to get it quilted tonight so that I can share it at hexie club this week (we postponed due to last Friday's weather). And then I can get back to my tree skirt. I'm still on section 6 but that will be finished long before the weekend is over because Saturday is guild sit-n-sew.

It is soooooo gonna be fun next year comparing rosettes and how weird the weather has been...
How has your weather been? Can't wait to see your hexie rosettes:
