I started out with my seven Kaffe Fassett hexies that I had basted long ago. I was so excited about the colors of the fabric and using them with hexies I knew I had to find some way to use them that was unique. After rearranging and turning them all in different directions I finally knew how I wanted them, I just needed some more fabric. An hour of searching the internet and I found two different places to order more. Once the fabric was here I quickly got to work.
Only 217 half-inch hexies and countless hours later my table topper is finished....This is a huge stretch of the imagination for me as I never in my wildest dreams would normally use these fabrics let alone together.

The Sewline glue pen I used to baste them worked wonderfully. The papers came out easily when it was finished (which I have often wondered about as I have never removed all the papers from a hexagon quilt before), and the fabric was nice and flat against the papers which made them easier to sew together. I am pretty sure it will be quite a while before I use these half-inch hexies again...it takes many hours to make a sizable piece, but well worth the extra time! Please visit the other blogs to see their hexie creations. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
