The Free Motion Quilting Project: Hexed Insanity

Hexed Insanity

It's Wednesday and time to share what I'm working on! Despite my plan to get started on Duchess Reigns, I just haven't felt the drive to take her off the wall. I'm just feeling like a vacation! I need some light, carefree projects that I can pick up and finish quickly.

Which explains why I'm doing this:

This is insanity squared.

No, scratch that, it's insanity hexed. I'm hand English paper piecing 1/4" hexagons, which finish around the size of my index finger nail.

Yes, in comparison to Duchess Reigns, I guess this is a lighter, more carefree project, though I'm not sure it will qualify as anything I can finish quickly. All these little piece of gold silk are coming together to form the face, body, and arms of a new version of Express Your Love. One thing is for sure, this new version has brought out my crazy streak!

  2. I tried a 1/4" hexie flower for my hexie group. It is difficult to deal with pieces that small.

  3. Ahhhh.I have a kindred spirit. I thought I was nuts to do the same with one inch hexes...to make a purse. The funny thing is I am craving to make a quilt from those addictive litle hexes!

  5. I love those 1/4" hexies. What are you going to make out of them. I have a project on these tiny ones, and think I already have 4000 of them joined.
