Hexagon Charm Quilt - 386

Time for another Hexagon Quilt update!  They are actually a lot of fun to make.  I can grab a small bag of supplies and do about 20 in half of my lunch hour at work.  Then grab a few minutes here and there at other times.  I am sure that piecing them will be a little more challenging, but I am up for it.

Hexies in their Glory!
If you look to the right of the above photo you can see the 7 that I have pieced together.

I love the colour and character in a charm quilt, but I have been getting a little nervous that it will be too much for me.  To help with this, I have been toying with the idea of adding a pattern hidden in all of the charm goodness.  For the pattern I will use one fabric and repeat it on a few hexies.  The fabric will also be used for my binding.  The grey fabric that all the hexies are on in the above photograph is the fabric I am thinking of using.  It should go nicely in my bedroom, or anywhere really, I love grey.   Coincidentally, one of the 2.5” squares I received from someone is the same fabric.  I had to do a double take and make sure that I had not already cut into mine.
Here are the rest of my 2.5" squares.  I don't know how many there are, I will find out soon I am sure.  I also have more in my cupboards to add.

  1. I love your Hexes. You would seriously think I have a problem if you saw all of my 2.5" squares I still have knowing that over 500 have been made into hexes already.
