This week there has been a lot of hexagon making! I have been focusing on two main projects, first was getting caught up on the Wild Olive Winter Stitching Club. (You can still sign up!)
I had five weeks to catch up on, I hadn’t started them because of all the Christmas projects. I love stitching these little designs, they are so cute and stitch up really quickly. I haven’t done this week’s yet, and I still have to finish the hexagons. I ordered the Moda In From the Cold charm pack, but it hasn’t come yet.
Then I’ve been making hexagons like crazy. I got Quilting on the Go: English Paper Piecing Projects You Can Take Anywhere
and the Moda 30’s Playtime mini charm pack with an Amazon giftcard I had from Christmas. I quickly used up the whole charm pack and started reaching into my fabric scrap bin for hexagon sized pieces.
I also used a Hobby Lobby giftcard to pick up this Fiskars X-Large Hexagon Punch,
it was totally worth it!
One of the things keeping me from paper piecing was the lack of motivation to cut out hexagons. With this punch I can make stacks of hexagons in minutes. I have a lofty quilt goal for these, but I might get burned out and use them for smaller projects, we’ll see. But right now, I’m addicted to making these!
I’m going to be taking a respite from the hexagons while I start a new cross stitching project, but I will definitely be coming back to these! What have you been working on? Do you have any new addictions?
