Oh, how I love making these hexies! They go together quickly.....they require very little brain power....they only require small bits and pieces of fabrics so you can cut into your favorite fabrics that you've been hoarding forever without panicking too much.....and they look oh so pretty when they're all piled up together!
I added two new hexies to the pile last night but I'm just not sure about the yellow floral one.....
I think the flowers on the yellow one look a little loud and out of place next to the other hexies....
Here's the same pile of Hexie Happiness without the yellow floral one....
What do you think? It's better without the loud yellow floral one, isn't it? I need to make a new yellow and lavender hexie, don't I? I hope I don't offend the yellow floral hexie if I don't let it into the quilt (yes - I really do worry about the feeling of inanimate objects)! Maybe I should just applique it onto the back so it doesn't feel left out???
And here's my other Hexie million dollar question.....
Should I make a bazillion white hexies to go in between the hexie flowers? It will take a LONG time.....and for some reason it's sooo boring to make white hexies even though it's the exact same process as making colorful hexies....but that would make it a TRUE hexie quilt!
OR......should I just applique the hexies onto a white background and save myself a ton of time. Is that hexie cheating? What do you think?
P.S. I'm using these pre-cut 1" hexagons to do my English Paper Piecing.
