I've been making flowers from hexagons to use as flower centers. Are they cute or what!?
I find that I really like to fussy-cut the fabrics for my hexes. It's just fun to see what they look like as they come together. Here's a closer look…
I made these with the 1/2" papers which you can find here on the site. The bigger flowers in the first photo were made with 3/4" hexes.
It's funny. I did English paper piecing 20 years ago and then let it go as I moved on to other things. I have re-discovered how much fun these are to make and to use. Linda was right – these are a great take-along project!
(And speaking of hexes… I finally got my computer to shape up but now I can't make some of my fonts work in some programs. It's making me a little bit crazy. I lost Arial earlier today and couldn't read any of my emails. Thankfully I got that one working again. Computers – I love them most of the time.)
