HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 4/17/18

Hello, Hello and welcome to the latest Hexie Linky Party, our monthly (when I remember) link up to check in on our hexie friends and their projects.

As you will remember, I'm in the midst of newprojectitis and working on The Lion by Violet Craft.

I'm amazed at how easy this project has been. It probably takes more time to cut out the fabric than to sew them together thanks to a wonderful pattern. The pattern pieces are numbered in the order they should be added to mothership. I've made some personal changes in the order, even sewing a group of 2 or 3 pieces together before adding them when that chunk of pieces will have a relatively straight edge. No need to handle the mothership more than necessary.

And now it's your turn. Do you have newprojectitis, UFOresurrectionitis or maybe just newprojectdreams??!! Any project, in any paper shape, of any vintage is free game to share in the linky party. We are looking forward to seeing your projects!

Today I had to post two projects. I'm really proud of my La Passion finish. And before I start to hand quilt it, I had to find one of my old half hexie quilts, to make some new blocks. Your hexie project is so fun and unusual.

This project just had your undivided attention.

Your lion appears to have the wisdom of Aslan (The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe). Looking really good!

Your lion is roaring! Nice work. Does not look easy ... ;) Pat

The lion looks great. How difficult is it to do? Would you reuse the pieces and make a second one? Are you glue basting or stitch basting?
