Here's a little update on my Home Front Hexies. This is my first attempt at working with paper piecing but I thought I'd participate in HELP for Hexie-aholics and link up my blog with everyone else because hey .... we all like to share our addictions!! I love being able to take these with me where ever I go. I can usually even get a little stitching in at work on breaks and lunch. It's a great stress release for me. I find this really relaxing.
Here's where I'm at:
I've also noticed that I seem to do this different than everyone else. I learned to sew through the paper pieces and it doesn't seem that anyone else does that. Maybe I need to refine my technique, but it seems to be working for me so far. I remove the basting stitches and paper once a piece has a hexie or two around it.
You can see where I've taken the basting out of the red rosette.
No real plan for this other than to make rosettes until I run out of that fabric and then use the black to fill in to make whatever size I end up with. Wall hanging? Lap quilt? I'm not sure yet.
