hexes

hexagons
about a month ago i started a new project. i was inspired by the packaging that floh.stiche sent with my FTLOS quilt. there was a magazine page with a lovely color palette. it was outside my normal preferences but i was struck by how pretty it was. i cut out 2.5" squares from a variety of solids in my stash with just a few gray prints. most of these 1" hexagons are kona coal. i was thinking about doing a miniquilt similar to this pillow. this is not all of the hexagons i have basted, i just threw out a color sample for the picture. i'm almost done basting but i've been working on it very slowly. i know that this will be a very long-term project because i don't love handsewing that much, but it's nice to work on in between other things.
