I've been bitten by the hexie bug! Last Friday night, I noticed a button on another blog, One Flower Wednesday. Curious, I clicked on it, and discovered a whole new shape. Oh, how pretty those hexie flowers are! Right away I wanted to print and start cutting templates, but my computer wouldn't play, printer wouldn't print. I had to wait until the next day for my LQS to open. I went in the next day and asked for templates or ruler, just any hexagon making supplies that they had. The owner asked me, would you like to know a quicker way to make them? I said, sure! She pulled out a bag full of hexies, a project she is working on, and showed me how to take a circle of fabric, any size, and make a hexagon out of it. I was so excited, I had to buy some new fabric, couldn't walk out of there without buying something, after she had showed me such a wonderful time-saving technique. Her name is Rita, and her store is called Quiltsmith's, I just have to give her credit for showing me this. I went home and made a hexie flower.
