Patriotic Hexies

A few years ago my friend, Jovita, showed me her Grandmother's Flower Garden using silks...I had to do a wall hanging. Those hexies were small, each side was a half inch. Someday I'll post pics of that project. 

Two weeks ago, I started a new hexie project. This time, bigger. Bigger hexies, bigger project. My hope is to make a patriotic quilt to donate to either 
for wounded soldier quilts.

This time I'm working with giant hexies. Each side is 1.5 inches. 

I'll post again when I'm closer to finishing. I think I'll be short on fabric but I'll check the fabric shop inside my closet...maybe there is something there.

  1. These are looking great Maria! And .. yes, I am finding that 1-1/2" is huge too. Can't wait to finish my Courtyard Quilt so I can return to the little ones again.
