I had to make some adjustments to Mickey's instructions. Her patterns are for 1 1/2" hexies, but the ones I'm using are 7/8". It was definitely doable, but took a little figuring out each time I switched designs. I also altered some of the designs, creating my own riff on her originals. She's right when she says they are addicting! Of course, I feel that way about all the hexagons! I will be trying more pieced hexies, especially when I can move on to the larger size for another project.
Since I'm so close to finishing the prep work for the flowers, I bought the blues last week. These two blues will be cut and basted into about 300 hexagons to surround all those flowers. So far I've done 30...still lots to go. I love how the hexagons cut from the floral print will all look a bit different since the scale of the print is much bigger than the hexagons.
I'm linking up with the Needle and Thread Network today.
