hexie update

Hexagons have been my mission over the last few days. I traced a sheet of iron ons and sorted some fabrics into groups of seven to make more flowers. I will have around 50 flowers when they are all finished. I think I may even get another charm pack to make up some more. Talk about getting carried away!  I will just keep adding till I am sick of them. I was going to make this one small and then make a 'proper' one in selected fabrics but I think I will keep going with this one.
The pieced hexagons are growing quite nicely too but it can get a little monotonous just sewing the cream ones on. I like the srappiness of the different fabrics and it has cleared out a lot of small pieces of fabric that I had in my stash. The only fabric I have had to buy is some cream fabric to keep me going but even most of that was off cuts from stitcheries I have done.
Still loving the hexagons......

(the pieced ones so far...)
Hope your weekend has been a good one.

It is looking very pretty and lovely to see some bright colours on such a dull day.

Your flower garden is growing quite nicely. I really like the white surrounding the flowers.

Your flowers are looking very pretty - I like how they gain definition with the cream round.

I love scrappy quilts and your hexagons look great. Your LIB quilt is gorgeous....great job on the circles, Marina. Love, love, love the H & H quilt.
