Another hexie project

I have my MFHexy project for when I'm out and about, but when sitting on the couch I have different hexie project on the go.

I got the idea from the Hexa-Go-Go book I reviewed.
I'm using a charm pack of Rural Jardin by French General and so far I've only had to add a couple of spare charm squares in the red. I'll probably have to add some to the whites but not many I think. I'm going to go around the diamond once with the white, and then fill in to make the piece rectangular with whites, and maybe the tans too.

Because I'm using the Sizzix Big Shot I can get 4 of the 1.25" hexies from each charm square. That's 168 hexies from one charm pack! You can do a lot with that many hexies. Like make 24 hexie flowers.

Great idea to use a die cutter! I have always liked arranging hexies in the diamond pattern with a border. We are on the same page. Take a look at my post from today: http://artquiltmaker.com/blog/2012/08/now-it-is-later/

By the way, have you seen Ebony Love's Kickstarter campaign for her die cutting book? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1135685915/finally-a-book-on-fabric-die-cutting
