Design Wall Monday 04/29/13

This weekend I felt like trying something different.  I've been wanting to make some hexies for a few years now.  I pulled some scraps that were sitting on my cutting table and put together seven.

Then on Sunday, I thought it would be nifty to make a little pouch to hold my hexie making supplies.  This is also something I've been thinking about making for quite a long time now.  I really didn't think I'd actually finish the pouch, but here it is!  I used Noodlehead's tutorial and it worked out great.

Here it is all zipped up.  Now I'm all set to sew up some hexies in my spare time (like watching tv).  I used a fat quarter that I've had languishing in my stash for years.

Now I need to decide what to make with my hexagons.  Probably a mug rug.  I'll applique them to a square of fabric and quilt it a little.  I have a binding technique I'd also like to try out.  It was a weekend of trying new things!

Be sure to hop over to Judy L's blog to see what everyone else is working on today!

Love your green hexies! Are those 2" on a side?
