Hexagon Obsession

Lately, I have been obsessed with hexagons!

I started dabbling in hexagons a few years ago, but quickly lost interest as I do with most things.

But, after some quality time on Pinterest recently, I decided to take a stab at it again.  And I am enjoying it much more this time around.

I dug around in my craft room and found some leftover freezer paper templates from my previous hexie attempt.

I pulled some of my fabric stash and cut out some squares.

Ironed on the freezer paper templates . . .

Did a little trimming . . .

And basted the seam allowances under.

Here is a cute little stack of hexies all ready to get stitched together!

I played around with the hexie placement a little.  This is the traditional “Grandmother’s Flower Garden” pattern.

But I wanted something a bit more modern, so I decided on a diamond pattern.

Now, off to make more hexies!
