I had all the basted hexies in a baggie. I used to break up fights with the kids (they were so small then!) and dump them out on the floor and have the kids sort them by colors. Ali got the blues and reds and whites and Amal got the pinks and purples and greens and so on. They LOVED it and it gave me some peace. For a short while! So, I started sorting them in this box.
So very pretty! I have lots of blues and greens. Two rows of neutrals; 1.5 rows of pink; one row of purple; 1/2 of yellow; 1/2 of brown.....1/3 grey, black and red and orange. I wish I had some of the new prints out now! Wow!
Then, Angela made this and I got busy a few days later and made my own! Notice the fabric??Huh, huh, huh?? Coffeebeans!!!
I used the felt that I had on hand which is not such good quality. I used batting to cover the little raw ends of the hexie. Hexie. Not liking that word so much. Hmm.... I used black thread because it was late at night and I was too lazy to switch it out to white!
Then I picked a really pretty pink batik that doesn't show so well here and used a humongous ring. I will find something smaller this summer when home in the US!
It's a needle book! I have since put in three #9 betweens to do my piecing.
Found the stork scissors and will be switching to hand quilting thread to piece them.
Thanks for stopping by!
