Hexie Day

I've seen many different hexies floating around blog land. Some large some small. Which got me onto the idea of making up a few different sized ones.
I pulled out my triangular scraps which were large enough to give me 2.5" and 3" when cut from the right angle. I also had some 4" squares for larger hexies. I like the fabrics as they're bright. When I get my other ones I'll cut those up to add to these ones and make some more wedges for my pillows.

The orange square is a post-it note. Perfect 3" square!

I also cut a diamond template to make some paper pieced stars.

Then I got to work on sewing up some hexie flowers from the ones I'd  already basted and sewn into rows. Its much easier to pair/trio them before sewing them into flowers.

Hand sewing is so much more relaxing. As much as I love and miss Jano, more hand sewing may be in my near future.

Today I'm linking up with

There and Back

Siya'll tomorrow =D


  1. nice post thanks for sharing...looking for to visit more blessings

  2. love paper piecing - it's so relaxing!

  3. I love EPP, one of my favourite pastimes! your hexies are looking great

  4. I guess easy is in the eye of the beholder, or the eye of the needle, perhaps! I much prefer to sew one to each edge of the center one, and then sew the sides together, after taking the paper out of the middle piece. =) Your hexie looks great!

  5. I love seeing so many people get into making hexies! Yours look really great!
    Thanks for linking up to The Handmade Parade!
