The never-ending hexie project

I have seen so many hexie project on instagram - and it always makes me think "hey! I can do that too..."

So, I have started a hexie project of my own. I had some paper on hand, so I cut the hexies

I don't have a lot of hexies basted at a time, I keep them in a small IKEA plastic container that I borrowed from Miss V

She also helps me by pairing up hexies for flowers. Once she is happy with one, she stacks the hexies and puts a rubberband around them

Once in a while, she'll lay the finished flowers out on the floor - for us to see that we are making progress

She and I are still going back and forth on the layout. Should we leave it like this, or make the more traditional Grandmas Flower Garden quilt. Oh well, there's still plenty of time to decide :-)

While we try to make a decision on the LO, we both enjoy seeing the stack of flowers grow taller

We'll get there. Slow and steady gets the job done, right?

If they were mine I would be doing the layout you are showing. I'm not that fond of the traditional layout with paths. But having said that, I love seeing everyone else's project with the hexies but I don't want to do one myself. I will do one with huge hexies and equilateral triangles soon though, cut with dies on my Studio die cutter.

Very fun hexie flowers. I like the layout you have now.
