Hexagon Wallhanging

I've started a small hexagon quilt, its a take along project, I'm undecided about the layout at the moment,  although I fancy making a small braid quilt or bargello with them, they are 1 inch hexies and they are made up of left over batiks.

At the moment I'm making up 7 of each colour and then having fun playing with different layouts.




They are quick and easy to whip up, I watched this video tutorial from Texas freckles to get me started, she has also made up a pdf  print out for the 1 inch hexies, that I have downloaded and use.

I bought this cute little pencil case to keep in my handbag, it holds everything I need.




LOL just realised all the layout photo's only have six hexies, honestly I have made seven of each!

Happy sewing!
