hexagon madness

See these hexies? Paper backed, hand-basted and then (supposedly) hand-sewn together (haven't done that part yet). Hand sewn anything is usually something I avoid like the plague. Why am I doing it? I have no idea. It's a disease. Really, it is! Lady Harvatine even named it ~ and I have it ~ apparently. I have no clue what I'm going to do with these things.

I blame this all on Heather (a la mode fabric) because she introduced me to them via her flickr group {Handsome} Hexies. And I, having no willpower whatsoever, was immediately sucked in.
These are made of Tanya Whelan's Darla fabric which I really love and never seem to have a purpose for. So pretty.

I know I promised another skort variation, that'll but up in a day or two, promise. I got a little side-tracked with spring cleaning last night instead.

Carry on and Happy Sewing!

I've got everything all set to go to hand piece some hexies -- paper hexagons, fabric scraps, needle and thread. Just need to do it! Yours are very pretty in the Darla fabric! Just perfect for hexies!

Love the hexes in these fabrics! I have the same problem, I'm hooked on hexes! I'm trying to keep the addiction small - pillows for now. Anything bigger and I fear I'd forget to feed my children. Can't wait to see what you make with these!

Your hexagons are so pretty!! I ordered a 600 ct. paper piece pack and can hardly wait until it arrives. I have never done them before. :o)

How big are your hexies? I just bought a packet of half inchies and am just trying to decide what fabric to use... :)

Check out a blog called "I Think Sew". She makes wallhangings all out of small hexies - ambitious and totally awesome! I wish Lady Harvatine was still blogging. I liked her blog very much.
