Working Hexies Just For Fun

Here is a picture of my latest folly! Half Inch Hexies!!

I layed out the project on top, but you can barely see it here.

Please notice that the hexies are as big as the thimble, bobbins or my fingertip. I thought it would be fun to make a small project . . .just for fun so I can say I did it!  So I decided to make a dresser scarf.  That pink, grey and red strip on the top of the picture is the project.

They actually don't take long to form around the foundation papers. What takes a long time is making enough of them to cover anything! Since I am using freezer paper for the hexies, I don't have to deal with pins or glue, just iron then on to the fabric.

I will keep you posted on this project.

Next time I use this size, I will make coasters . . . LOL!

Can't even imagine doing a king size quilt!!!
