Trying something new......

Several days ago I ran across a new (to me) blog called Faeries and Fibers.   She has opened a Soupcon FLICKR Group
I was intrigued.  Since I'm fairly new to the wonderful world of Hexies I decided it was time to spread my wings and try out a few more shapes.  AND it was time for one or two more projects. 
So I jumped right in and printed off a sheet of 1" hexies and added a few lines here and there and took away a few other lines until I came up with a 'Jewel' or a modified hexie (as Karen calls them). 
Here's a link to one of her posts that explains how she does it.  So much simpler than I did.  Wish I would have read more of her blog before jumping in feet first.  lol 

This is a scrap of black/white fabric I used to fussy cut the six jewels. 

Now.... let me just say that since I didn't really know what I was doing this first little star was a real stumbling mess.  Thankfully I have a wonderful iron that pressed it into submission.  lol
After this one I think I will be able to do a better job on the next one. 

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

    1. Thanks. But looks are deceiving. I can say that I do know more than I did before I made this one. That's a good thing. lol

  5. pressed into submission, LOL. Well, use I think any quilter has had to resort to that a time or two in their quilting career! Hopefully it goes better when you try again.
