Last week I finally caved and started a new hexagon project. I'm still chugging away on the pink quilt for the Princess, but I have quite a ways to go before I can actual sew hexies together and I needed some visible progress.
(Forgive the instagram link, I'm too lazy to go find the original and upload to flickr.)
I cut out squares of pinks, reds, blues, aquas and teals and selected a larger hexagon template. These are 1.5" hexies, as opposed to the 1" hexies on the pink quilt, and they feel HUGE. I've worked on it a good bit this weekend and have two completed flowers/rings and started attaching the third this morning (at the top of the photo, weird angle there, sorry. There's two solids and the flowered one...)
My idea is to put them together using this sort of overlapping layout. I'm loving seeing the progress as I go and it's nice to get to switch it up with sewing them together.
I'm linking up with Jessica at Life Under Quilts, go check out some other talented paper piecers.
