WIP Wednesday Hexies

I have been working hard on my Kaffe Fassett Hexagon project. If I have my hexagons all pre-basted, I can sometimes get 3 done in one night. I find the cutting and basting for one can takes just as long as the sewing one flower. 

My next step was to pick out a background fabric. I had a meter of this yellow but was not sure. 

Then I found this one, Bubble Gum pink Kona cotton. Love it. 

I love the fussy cutting I did on this flower. My hexagons are 1" on the side. 

Here are a few flowers I have done the pink around. 

I have added this post to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday and Needle and Thread Network

My crazy little lab. She got to go in the water and now she keeps looking out the window at the lake. I think she will be a swimmer. 

OK funny thing I will admit to. You may know I have trouble spelling but the spell check helps. Well my husband found Hamburger soup in the freezer marked Hambugger soup. I keep laughing about it. Bugger soup. 


  1. Your hexies are terrific. The lone purple one looks as if it's blooming in 3-D

  2. The pink is fabulous. Way more pop than the yellow. I see you like kf fabric also! Great block exchange.

  3. Beautiful! The pink is a great background for your fabric choices. I love Kaffe fabric, but don't think I'd have your patience (or talent) with the fussy-cut hexies.

  4. I love the fussy cutting on that purple one, too ... looks just like a real flower ... fabulous!

  5. Fantastic fussy cutting, and yes, preparing them takes at least as much time as sewing them.
    Your lab wants to swim, my kittens wonder about taking on ravens... spring.
