I took a class through Craftsy.com to make pieced hexies.  I haven't done but just a couple, but they are fun to do.

Have any of you ladies seen or tried the "pieced hexagons"?  I just discovered them and wow - looks incredibly time consuming but so tempting.  For maybe a millefiori type design.

I will Amanda. I too have never seen one like it before and the hexies are so small.

Wow, that is a gorgeous hexagon project, Sobana, the lady in your group is quite talented! What a lovely idea. Be sure to tell her how much we all love it!

Thank you, Patricia! I want so badly to have a finished Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, but hand embroidery is what I spend most of my hand work time on, so it sort of gets shuffled to the back, hopefully progress will continue!

Sobana, that quilt is going to be quite lovely when it is finished.

I really want to get back to working on my little blocks soon.  Today I had to go to Joanns to get some fabric to finish a t-shirt quilt I'm making for my nephew Kyle and found a cute little container that I'm going to put my little hexies in until I have enough do actually do something with.

I agree with Sobana. That is a pattern I have never seen before and really like it.

Sobana,  I like the basket idea of the GFG.  Love the colors. 

Comment by Patricia4 on February 17, 2015 at 7:59am

Yay Amanda!  Good job!  I need to get back to my GFG also.  Have gotten distracted by other projects.  And also "just" started a postage-stamp size hexie project - I have made ONE tiny hexie.  Haha!  Mostly just to see if I was happy with the size.  I will cut a ziploc full of them to take on vacation this summer.

Sobana, I have not seen this design before and I really like it.  Going to keep a copy of that in my someday maybe projects folder.

Good for you Amanda. I need to do this too.  I want to share something a lady in my group is working on

Comment by Amanda Best on February 17, 2015 at 6:00am

I finally added a flower onto my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt after at least a year of no progress on it. I am hoping to get re-inspired and make some progress!
