Scraps and hexagons

This pile consists of a little bit more than 750 hexagons. I made them out of...

 these scraps given to me by a friend.

In about a week time, all of the paper hexagons were covered with fabric.

So much fun to discover all the different prints!

 I opened up a box of hexagons I made a few years ago,

about 350 of the same size hexagons (3/4 inch sides) in this box.

In total I have now 1100 hexagons in this basket, mixed up, ready to be sewn together,

into a quilt. I started a little piece today. I will be using some old pieces of fabric like the flowers on the left which are bigger than the hexagons, in between as little surprises.
I started this last week as an 'in between project', easy for taking with me while traveling or watching television....I always know how to sell a new project to myself!!!

Have a great weekend,
