 First hexie block unpressed.

They're coming along, those cute hexie rectangles.  I love all the handwork.  It's so portable and easy, and pretty much auto-pilot.  Given that I'm a lazy craft woman, auto-pilot is what I like.

Here's the same block, but pressed.  A bit out of focus, 'cause I didn't use the tripod.

Here is the planned layout.  Maybe.  Who knows?  I'll see.  I'm planning on another row, so it should be OK in size.
Each block will have a border of either one of two greens, or one of two yellow/oranges.

Here's the first block layed out on the darker green to get the idea of what I want.

I'm not sure how big I'll make this quilt.  Probably lap size, because I like to cuddle underneath quilts and not put them on my bed.  OK, the real reason is that boredom will set in and then I'll finish it up.  In the meantime, I'm not bored at all, and am really enjoying all the hand work.  BTW, the hexies were appliqued onto the Kona white.  I'm not great at it, but I suspect I'll be pretty good by the time this quilt is done.

Now I need a name.  I'm thinking of Hexified.

OOOOOHHH, I get it! I guess I am slow, I didn't realize it was going to be blocks. Guess I missed that part, LOL.

Oh my gosh! That is beautiful. I like that the hexagon blocks aren't a full square, so much more interesting this way. I love hexagons. I'm working on the Beekeepers Quilt using up my sock yarn left overs. Noe this make me want to quilt hexagons with my scrap fabric!

Gorgeous!!!! Can't wait to see some of the blocks with the borders on them. Have you considered using a button hole stitch (by machine) instead of applique? Don't forget HeLP is next Monday :)

Wall to wall: It's sort of a take-off on a block from neat hexie book.

CathyR: You are very brave to do the beekeepers quilt. I couldn't even do one of them. ;-)

Sarah: Maybe I'll get another block done tonight.
