« some more hexies... | Main | a link swap and a giveaway! »

hello, hexies!

right now i am in the middle of so many projects! i belong to the [3x6] sampler quilt bee on flickr, and we just recently got our beehive information. this bee works a little differently than others i've belonged to. instead of sending out fabric and a block pattern, we pick a color group and our fellow bee-members make a block with their own stash. they pick the block pattern and then make a block for each color group we've picked. i can't wait to see what fun stuff they come up with!

for my block, i decided to do a hexie flower. i have one (sort of) put together and lots more hexies made.

my first finished flower is for someone who wanted green, grey and white. the ground for the block will most likely be a kona medium grey

some of the color groups come together really easily. this orange, red and white one was a breeze!

others make me realize what colors are really lacking in my stash. these two purples are the only ones i have! and they just won't do. i have to set this block aside until i go off my buying hiatus. the color group (yellow, grey and purple) is fun and i want to do it justice!

Hexies are great blocks for this bee! And yes, it is easy to pick out what might be lacking in our stash :)

oh, tiffany! thanks so much for the offer to send me purples. it's funny what we're really drawn to. i didn't think i disliked purple... but i just don't have any!

i moved my stash out of boxes and onto shelves and it makes it a lot easier to see where the gaps are! i've also used a lot more of it since it was moved.
