Scrap Hexie Saturday

I decided to get all of my scrappy hexie stars and snowflakes up on the wall together to look at the layout. These were started last August as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and became my favorite way to spend time during my morning train commute to work and while "watching" television in the evenings, especially baseball games.



It looks like the only colors I am missing are yellow (our color for June!) and orange. After that, it will be all about the background hexies and getting everything joined together. I imagine that will take at least another year. Below is my EQ7 version of the design. I am still playing with ideas for how to finish it off.



Check out the Rainbow Scrap Challenge posts every Saturday to see how others are using up their scraps. So many beautiful projects! This week I am also linking up to the Hexie Weekend at A Quilting Reader's Garden.

  3. I am in exactly the same place with one of my rainbow scraps projects--only missing yellow and orange and can't wait to start cutting up yellow scraps. Your stars are WONDERFUL.

  5. Oh I love how this looks when they are all layed out. Hexes do take sometime, but I think you made the best out of time that is usually wasted.

  8. This is so pretty Julie. How big are the hexies? I am in awe that you design your quilts! Mine just grow out of a seed of an idea, and sorta get bigger. LOL

  11. WOW! I love those two shapes together! I figured they were going to be two different quilts. I saw something this week in blogland where someone finished off the binding with hexagons - and whip stitched them together. It was a really neat idea and looked great as a finish.
