When my parents where here a few months ago, I mentioned to my mom that I needed a 'hand' project to keep busy at night. For some reason I find it so boring watching tv lately, that's when I decided to start piecing one inch hexies.
So I started cutting out templates and sorted out scraps. My mom then volunteered to help. So I prepared a bag with scraps and templates that she took home with her. Here she is (left) at her home sorting out all the hexies by colour and prints. This picture was taken about a month ago and she already has over a 1000 basted in total. She even went out and bought extra fabric to help this project along. I love her to bits ♥♥
I too have been busy basting hexies but I don't have nearly as much. Here is a post I wrote with some useful links to create your own templates, not only for hexies but other shapes too.
So I eventually ran out of templates and on Monday I printed out some more and started the tedious job of cutting them out. It took a whole day to cut out 20 A4 pages. My thumb was so sore and tender after, that I decided stop. I can carry on another day.
I now have a little over 400 hexies basted and still counting. The plastic container I used was completely full, so I moved them to a larger one.
