hexie Forever Project - down the rabbit hole   General Discussion

Ok....................I can now get back to sewing up my pants because I finished my hexi cubes this morning. Yup I started sewing around 7am and finished the last 3 of the 7 cubes I planned..............LOVE THEM!!!!!!! These are not the best fabrics but the color really speaks and I know once I get back to my entire collection of stash I will play with this theme of rainbow hexis again. I do need to put them on a background and quilt them. I laid them out on the deck which is grey and even though I had originally planned to put them on black I think I like the grey and now need to find some fabric for that.............wish I had grey grunge but I do know I have grey Kona cotton so might go with that. I may hand applique them to the background as I think the seams from setting them into the background might detract from the setting. Figure a little handwork might me nice in the evenings and because it is straight lines should not take that long. What do you guys think?

Ami, your wall hanging will brighten any spot where you hang it.  May have to try these cubes once I finish my snowflakes.

If you hadn't said you had put them on your deck, I would have thought it was gray fabric.  I *do* like that color as a background.  Love the different sized hexies you put into one project and that gives me some ideas for mine.  (Although, I am strictly at the creating the cubes stage.)  I also liked Lynne's haphazard arrangement that made the cubes look as though they were tumbling.  So much potential!

I don't think I am done playing with these hexi cubes. I can see making more projects using them. Kinda like the wonkey circles I have been making...........I have made 4 quilts and that one you saw that is still in progress. I can see playing with hexi cubes and trying new colors, and settings.........there is an endless variety of things that can be done with them.

This is one of six pieces of the project I want to finish before I fall all the way down the rabbit hole to start on cubes.

The pattern is Snowflake Collection by Annette Rose.  There is still embroidery to add to this.  Don't know if I'll manage the sixth one as it is the only one with the little diamonds.  Pink templates and dime to show size.
