My Hexies

In 2011 when we moved from Boston to Los Angeles we initially thought we would be taking a road trip across the country. So I had decided I needed a hand sewing project to keep me occupied. Laurie from Dresden Lane had just taught us how to do paper piecing and so I decided to do a scrappy hexagon quilt (my original post from 2011 is here).  Several people donated their scraps since I didn’t really have any at the time.

We ended up flying to Los Angeles instead of driving and so, three years later I haven’t made much progress on this project

Scrappy Hexagons(yes, this is all I have managed to sew together…)

It has been sitting on my sewing table for this entire time and I have to admit I’m a little  sick and tired of looking at the ziplock bag I keep the scraps in. So, I’m retiring it to my scrap bin for the moment. I’m not sure if I will ever pick up this project again in the foreseeable future, but it’s sure nice to have some space on my sewing table.
