DWMonday ~ Half Hexies

I’ve been interested in the half hexie quilts I’ve seen floating around cyber land. I don’t have a half hexie die or template, but I got an idea. Dangerous, I know.

I’m using this layer cake and some off white yardage.

I grabbed my nested Accuquilt hexagon dies and made marks with a silver sharpie 4 inches from the top edge of one. I lined up ten layer cake squares on these marks and ran them through my die cutter.

I did the same with the background fabric.

Clearly I need a few more of those. I may hunt down a few more prints as well.

I won’t know until I get to piecing if this is a brilliant idea or a tragic disaster. Stay tuned.

Have a great day!

    Hi Katy! This is COOL. I’m wondering about the seam allowance . . . but how fun to be playing along. I think this will work perfectly. Happy Monday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
