More Hexie Fun!

Hand Stitched Folded Hexie Flowers
 
These are made from folded circles, no papers, no templates.
I learned this technique from my friend Cindy at the The Quilt & Needle 

 
This project is kept in a take-along bag that I carry around for those times when I will be sitting and looking for something to keep my hands busy.  I have been working on these for a long time and do not yet have a big enough pile for a quilt. 


These hexes are not as precise as the perfect EPP ones that I so admire, but they are much easier on my hands in which I have some arthritis.  I thought others who are looking for an alternative to the EPP ones, might be interested.
 
On the Quilt & Needle Forum we had a wonderful Hexagon Quilt-a-long.
There are other posts on the Q&N Blog showing these and other hexies like this post here from Dorian  ... Summer Quilts

 Someday I hope to have enough of these for a quilt!
 
 
Every time I lay these out on a table, Butterfly finds them. 
 
 
Naptime!
Butterfly wants this quilt for herself.

  2. hi....I don't use papers either in my method of making hexes....I cut out hexes first then just turn under 1/4 inch...they are pretty precise....I just finished 2 grandmothers flower garden quilts....you can see pictures at Quilt Stitching Blog if you like...now I am working with just the center and the first round like you are
