A Finished Quilt Top & Playing With Tiny Hexy's

In a previous post, I wrote about participating in a 'scrap buster' workshop.
Very pleased to have a completed quilt top to show you!
 It will have to go on the shelf for a little while, so I can sew the backing.... & also spend some time snipping off the zillionty threads from the back of itšŸ¤£šŸ¤£.
At 65" x 81", it's a good size for however it ends up getting used.

Decided recently to give myself a little challenge... bought a pack of little hexy papers, they are only 3/8th inch sides, the smallest I sewn with yet! I have been basting 1/2" hexagons in the last few months, & thought "they are only a wee bit smaller, how hard could they be??"
They weren't really hard, but they were definitely fiddly!
 I'm glad I've had that little bit of fun & will now resume working with my 1" scrappies!

Definitely small hexagons! I did an ornament with 1/2" once and once was enough. I like 3/4" best, but use 1" and 1.25", too, and sometimes 3" for embroidery. Your scrappy quilt is wonderful! How great to take fall scraps and make something so beautiful!

Love your quilt, very eye catching. The hexie flower is so cute. You should give 1/4" hexies a go. :) Hugs,xx

Your quilt is beautiful. I love the colors and what is that pattern? I'm a hexie fan and am absolutely in love with the teensy, tiny, fussy-cut baby hexi you shared in this post. GORGEOUS!
