HeLP for Hexie-aholics

Hello and welcome to another edition of HeLP for Hexie-aholics, our monthly Hexie Linky Party!!!

As part of our Hexie Night at the LQS, we have a Birthday Club. When it's your birth month, the other hexiologists give you basted "hexies" in whatever color you have requested. Last year was our first and we exchanged 3/4" hexies - you'll recall the pillow I am making with my purple hexies.

This year we are exchanging 1.5" 6-point diamonds. I bought the papers a while ago but they were too small for my intention at that time and they got put in the drawer while I worked with a bigger size. Now that we are going to play with the 1.5" diamonds I decided it was time to make something with them - not only as a sample for the girls to get ideas for their birthday diamonds but also because I've had this picture pinned for some time and I wanted to do it in EPP (the original was done with paper piecing and not with diamonds).

I'll be adding diamonds of a darker orange around the outside edge.

Please don't ask what it's gonna be when it grows up!

Ok, Now it's YOUR turn to share an EPP project of any shape or vintage!!!! Don't forget to link to a specific post. Let me know if you need help linking properly or fixing a link. I'm looking forward to seeing all of your projects!!!


  1. I love the prints you've used so far in this little piece -- it's going to be pretty stunning, regardless of what it chooses to be when it 'grows up'! :)

  2. Love your hexies. I just found your site today.

  3. Okay I won't ask what it's going to be when it grows up - LOL. Such it will ge nice. Love the fabric combo and think the orange will look great with it - a fall piece?

  4. Love your tessellating -stars? -maple leaves? -whatever they ares!

  5. I see that EPP has REALLY taken over your sewing life - glad I am not the only one!
