Mini Hexes

I have been working on some mini hexagons using Bonnie Christine’s Sweet as Honey line of fabric for Art Gallery.  These little hexagons are pretty cute!  They would be considered 1/2″ hexies(hexagons in the quilting world are measured by the length of one of the sides).

These fabrics just scream, “make me into hexagons”–it’s all the wonderful bees/hives/hexagons sprinkled throughout this fabric line:

Bee Hive
Hexagons
Bonnie even designed a free hexagon quilt pattern for this line which you can find here:
HoneyPot Quilt
I still have more little hexagons to make but they are a fun little winter project.

By the way, if you ever want to print out your own hexagon paper pieces for english paper piecing, this site is a perfect resource.  You can set your hexagons at whatever size you need and print them out(I print mine out on card stock).
Paper
Cut apart, and you are all ready for making hexagons. =)  My hexagons are destined to be made into a pillow or mini wall hanging–I haven’t decided which yet.  For those of you who have been sucked into the mini craze, where do you hang all of your mini quilts?
Happy Sewing!

    Really cute! I’m hexologist, but I’ve never made them that small. Your ideas are too addictive for me. They all look like fun, but I’m so overcommited!

    That is a cute line to make hexies with!! I love turning my 1/2″ hexies into diamonds, but I think I will try the 3″ in Honey Pot just to actually see what it’s like to move along quicker. Thanks for sharing the site for printing hexagons too.

    Thanks for sharing the site to print the different shapes. I am going to try to make the 1/2″hexes. Love your projects!
