Hexies . . . big ones!!

Seems like everyone loves hexies nowadays!

I've seen so many cool projects, and even a hop over at Madame Samm's. Hexies are versatile and addicting, too!

I packaged up some big ones for someone who needed a project to work on, but it didn't "take." I selected two inch templates (I know, I know, so big!) and then rough-cut some cute thirties fabrics and safety-pinned them together. After a while it became obvious even to me, who was hopeful of recruiting another quilter, that they would not be used. So I brought back the templates and the fabric and they sat, kinda forlornly, in the UFO pile.

Then I was at the person's house helping pull together a meal, and I noticed that she had nothing to use to pull pans from the oven! Nothing! Well, almost nothing. 

Then those hexies stared at me from the UFO pile and the light bulb went off!


So, these, that are so familiar to many of you:


Became these, that are so big!  (Almost eleven inches across!)


Stay tuned, and I will show you how these "hexie-holders" turn out!

Love,
