If you had asked me a year ago about sewing together hexagons by hand, I would have laughed… or used some colorful language. Probably both.
Except little hexagons are actually adorable. And fussy cut hexagons are even more adorable. And what a perfectly non-boring way to use scraps… and cutting them up is easy with, say, a Sizzix die-cutter. I mean they practically make themselves, right? Right?
It really is the perfect project for sewing on the go. Two weekends hosting old friends and then a wonderful weekend at a “summer camp themed wedding” took me away from my sewing machine, but my trusty little English paper piecing kit was able to come right along with me. Stitching during a long car ride? Yes. Paper piecing by the lake? Double yes.
In all honesty I started this project months ago, but I’ve never blogged about it. My plan is to make a coordinating pillow for my Good Fortune Quilt and Rainbow Window Pillow. It sure is slow going, but I am making progress. The only problem? It looks great, until I zoom out and see how much more I have left to do!
Ah well. Slow and steady, right?
Linking up with WIP Wednesdays at Freshly Pieced … because this one is sure to be in progress for quite some time!
