More Hexagons

Hi everyone!  Hope you've all had a great week!  It's the weekend and for many of us that means some sewing time! :)  Need a project?  There's still time to make a hexagon block and share it with us before we draw for a winner of 3 lovely half-yards of Innocent Crush!  Check out the tutorial in our previous post here.

I just whipped up a slightly smaller version with some fabric I've been hoarding for quite some time ...

What do you think?  I love the dot border around it.  I used 1" wide strips instead of 1.5" and the hexagon is 5.5" instead of 6.5".  Once you get the hang of these blocks, you can stitch them up pretty quickly.  How about a quilt with floating hexagons in all different sizes?  If you're like me, you're hoarding some lovely prints with big flowers or medallions that would be so awesome featured in a block like this.

Speaking of which, how about the cute bird or pretty flower in these Tea Garden prints?!  Just a hint of what's to come later this weekend! :-)
Get stitchin' y'all and link us up on this post.  :-)
