'Piece Yourself Together'... It's a Whiteout!

With so much sport on telly at the moment, it's quite easy to spend a bit of time each night doing some hexy basting. I'd run myself completely out of white 'sashing' hexy's for my Scrappy Hexy Quilt... so I spent time tracing & cutting out a huge number of pieces... then each evening, just basting... basting... basting.
This heap should keep me happy for a while!
 

Lovely Karen (Karen's Korner) joins in sometimes for PYT... if you haven't seen her amazing quilt finish, please be sure to pop over to her blog & see her stunning hexy quilt! Like many EPP projects, it took a few years to bring to completion... but Karen has persisted & now has a truly beautiful finish to be proud of... It's featured HERE in this post. Do pop over!

Karen's quilt is gorgeous! I'm currently basting white connectors too! My GFG is nearing completion, and I have to decide how to finish it off.

Yes, I have been bitten by the hexie bug and have a few different finished flowers/shapes while I figure out what I want to do! Love that quilt from Karen.
