Hexie Love

I’ve been bitten by the hexie bug…I blame blog land, the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild, Candi, and Julie for posting an awesome tutorial for paper piecing hexagons.

I especially love the hexies in Bliss (who wouldn’t??)…which are perfect for my partner in the Potholder Pass 4 swap on Flickr.  I’m thinking of putting them on linen and hand stitching around the outside of each hexagon…I have a feeling these are going to be hard to part with.  Might as well make a set of 2!

I love hand sewing….it makes me feel less isolated from my family since my “studio” is in the attic, plus it’s portable for long car rides or even to take to the Phillies games.  I’m hooked. End. Of. Story.  Except, I think I’m too ADD to try and make an entire quilt out of hexagons.

I love them! Blogland has turned me on to the hexies too, I've got a few on my to-do list. Yours look great!
