Hi! I hope you're having a good holiday season. Ready for the New Year?? :)

I got some cute pastel charm packs for Christmas and I've also been wanting to make paper pieced hexagons again. Here are some that I made yesterday:
Posy hexagons
I played around with some layouts in EQ and decided to make a heart, out of hexagons. Maybe more than one. Here's a long and triangular kind of hexagon heart:

heart hex1
(The big one, above, takes 59 hexagons. So you don't have to count.)

And here are some short chubby hearts: heart hex2
I like the pointy ones... but I also like the smallest chubby ones. I think they would be cute on a tiny quilt. Each one is made of just 13 hexagons. 

Let me know if you decide to make a hexagon heart!

They are all kinda cute, and they all have more than 13 hexies in them too. You could probably even design another one in between the two shapes and combine them all in one project.

I have a box filled with hexagons and another filled with yo yo's, making a couple of mini heart quilts would be really cute and what am I saving them for anyway!

I LOVE hexagons. In 2012 I made several bags out of them, along with a few pincushions too. I now see a heart wall hanging in my future.

I'm just getting started making the hexi's and I love them! I have no idea what I want to make yet but just the mindless basting is satisfying so far. Love your heart idea.

Vicki, just finished sewing the heart together. Such a fun idea. Now need to figure out exactly how to use it!
