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!

What an image from such an innocent time ...

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.

Oh, Wow!  That is really impressive! I couldn't imagine working on something that small.  You have my admiration!

Wow!  Those are some *small* templates.  I really do like the resultant snowflake ... it's very pretty.

Jo your snowflake project looks really pretty. The hexi cubes took me all of 3 days and now I am ready to work on other stuff again as I have to figure out the in I do not have fabric that will work so need to go get some. Multiple projects has never been a problem for me as I enjoy bouncing back and forth between stuff.

I did finish sewing my pants today, they are a rayon fabric so I am hanging them a few days to relax the fabric before I hem them............they are kinda a lounging style and I really like them.

Now I need to figure out what to work on next.

I have a question about the rhombuses...are they the same width and the bottom one being slightly fatter is an optical illusion or are they really different widths and does it matter as long as they are consistent?
