I swore that I would never make a Hexie quilt, but guess what.....     I'm making one.   I found a book that teaches how to make hexagons using a circle and folding technique that is really easy.   It isn't as exact as English Paper Piecing, but it's still very easy and, in the long run, you can't tell that the pieces aren't perfect.    I'm having so much fun making hexies and sewing them together, that I haven't even turned on my sewing machine in a couple of weeks.    Here is the progress so far:

And here is where I'm headed with it:

This design was created by a woman in Sweden named Helena.    Her blog address is:    Take a look at her progress, too!     We're both making the same pattern, but I bet when they're both finished, they will look completely different.    I love her colors with the turquoise.

I love being in the middle of  a big project!
