My First Attempt at Making Hexies and Hexie Flowers!!
Ok, I made the leap!! Here are some of my first Hexies and I have started sewing together little flowers!! I, of course, chose Kaffe Fassett fabrics for my first go around and I think they are going to be very colorful!!!
After looking at several blogs and videos on how to sew the hexies together, I have been trying different ways of sewing them and even though the picture below does not show it, some of the seams show the stitches in the front. Slightly, but enough to make me crazy!!!
Well, I thought I had a good start until I read one blog in which she told me she was going to need 8000 hexies to complete the quilt she is working on!!! 8000??????? Is she nuts?? If it is true that I would need 8000 of these little guys to make a quilt, I'll be something like 93 years old before the quilt TOP even gets done!! I was thinking I was going hand quilt this project!! Ask me again in 5 years - I may send it off to Sue to machine quilt!!
