Hexie Beads

Slowly but surely, my little hexies are turning into something more than just a box full of pretty shapes.  After making 400 hexagons from all the dots I could find in my stash plus some checks and stripes, I decided to separate them into colors. It worked out fairly well that there are at least 19 or 20 of each color category, These five strips represent what I've gotten sewn together so far....two white strips, one red , a turquoise and a light green. Hanging from a tree branch, they remind me of a beaded curtain!
Five down, fifteen to go!

  6. First thought that was one complete amazing quilt!! As my friend Sarah said to me the other day when we were out walking in the countryside, 'we just can't compete with this!'
    Look forward to seeing what ou do with your pretty hexagons.
