Hex Project ReDesign

I'm still making hex's...a lot of them actually.  This is/was my design for my hex geometric project.

I decided to make the entire background out of hex's and use a solid/other fabric to encase the circles in.  I like the idea of using black fabric.....such a good contrast against these colors, don't you think?

But I'm not quite sure how I'm going to go about it. I am thinking of doing a reverse applique technique my friend Susan developed.  (You can see the start of my Georgia piece here and the finish piece here. using her technique.)

I printed out the design and started to color in just to get some ideas.  Always fun to play this way isn't it!

I know these look pretty rough....but it's giving me some ideas to work from.  I may have to tweak the design and I guess in the meantime I'll just keep sewing hex's!!  HA  Besides...what else do I have to do!  😜😜


  1. I’m totally impressed with the creativity you’ve got going with the hexie theme…..really well thought out and clever!

  2. Hexies are the best during football season!! I love the fabrics you are using.

  3. I love this idea. I can't wait to see it come together.

  4. I love the hexies....such a "been around forever" and still so cool design.My mom's first and only quilt when she was 10 was all hexagons - @ 90 years ago.
