so i started working on this the other day and its very rewarding although a tad slow moving because of the handsewing. this will hopefully turn into a big quilt that i will then take on as my first hand quilted quilt project. it is made from the many scraps of bright fabrics that i have been hoarding from leftovers of my various projects. i hope by posting it here that i'll have to finish it Tongue although it will take a while.

the green background is just a shirt that i put it on to make a pretty picture (i'm sure you are tired of looking at my yucko floor Tongue)

I love your colors that you have chosen!!! Ive never conquered a Hexagon quilt before. I love that you are hand piecing it. I know how time consuming that can be but the results are so worth it Cheesy

:)thank you thank you. its just scraps from all my quilting cottons. i'm hoping that i will get it done sooner rather than later. i'm also thinking that borders will make it bigger too so it doesn't have to be the whole giant size. not sure if i want it to be a snuggly blanket or one that would fit on a bed. its less than a foot square now though so i think i've got lots of time to decide Tongue

nice.  may i ask why you are hand-piecing it?  Never did a hexagon quilt, just wondering if you have to hand piece it.

handpiecing it cause i never have, i always machine sew. and i have these cool plastic template things that you sew the fabric around. and once you have ahexagon sewed to each of the 6 sides you pop the plastic thing out. sounds complicated but it isn't. not sure if you can make these by machine. hand it probably easier.

you just fold the fabric over the hexagon template and tack it on (sew one stitch it each corner. then make another one the same. place the two right sides together and and whip stitch them together.
