I've also been working on some hexies. This lime and orange one uses plastic templates that I bought at Joann's. More citrus colors!
This one I started a long time ago using paper templates. I definitely prefer the plastic because my hexies are more consistently shaped that way. I'm not sure if I cut them out messy or if its because the foundation of paper is so much more flexible, but I seem to do better with the plastic. Also, I really need to work on my seams. I tried both ladder stitch and whipstitch to put these together and you can see most of my stitches in person. Phooey. Looks great in a photo though. ;)
Those little trees from Erin McMorris are so cute! This one is appliqued onto a large scrap of purple waves and it is destined to become a zippered pouch for my hexies-in-progress.
My other project in the works is a jelly roll quilt with simple squares. Once the cutting is done and you've got all the block components put into piles, chain piecing makes these blocks a breeze. The fabric is Frolic by Sandy Gervais and as I work with it, I'm loving it more and more. The colors are a great combination. I would never think to add in brown with the cheerful coral and turquoise and yellow, but I think this combo really makes the fabric pop.
Next on my to-do list are some X and + blocks for my circle of do.Good Stitches, and something fun for the Wicked Blog Hop next month.
I'm linking up with the lovely Amy at AmyLouWhoSews with her Sew & Tell Friday. Hop on over to see what other projects are out and about!
