Besides the hexagons I made for the felt coaster I posted yesterday, I’ve been busy with English paper pieced hexagons! It’s officially an addiction, which is a good thing because I need a lot.
My original math was 1118 hexagons for a twin blanket, but then I realized I was only calculating for the size of a twin mattress, not the size the actual blanket needed to be. The new total I need – 1880.
I’m keeping a tally of all the hexagons I make, separated by color. I plan on having 8 colors – pink, red, orange, yellow, green, teal/aqua, blue, purple. I didn’t have the teal/aqua category originally but I kept coming across colors I was having trouble categorizing as blue or green. So I need 235 hexagons of each of the 8 colors.
So far green is in the lead with 86. I have 494 finished, only 1386 to go…

Love your hexies…..
I got hooked over the summer and am in the beg. Stages to clean out my basement so I washed tons of fabric I had down there and put it upstairs but before I did that I cut 6 squares from almost every fabric I had to use for hexies and make GFG quilt . Then I decided I should make a twin size for my granddtr. I am totally confused on how to put it tie their and ask questions all the time. I just counted and I gave. 106 small flowers made…the. Center yellow with 6 around but now I have to figure out how many white hexies yo surrounded the. Flowers and try to figure out to put it together…..so I would love to get input from you………..are you making flowers or just putting them together randomly?
I used this website to calculate how many hexagons to make.
I plan on using that layout that they have where the hexagons are in diagonal rows.
