Wednesday Cut...Cut...Cutting...

The summer holidays are not so far, and I decided to have a hexies big cutting session,
so that everything is ready when packing...
The process was easy, as I'm only using 4 different fabrics.
3" strips - hexie template designing - rotary cutting (several layers together)
I much more prefer basting hexies, rather than squares, around my paper pieces.
This way I don't have to cut / adjust my seam allowances...

Can you imagine there is a whole 85"/85" quilt in this box ?
(1825 hexies)
The best is yet to come...
Enjoy your sewing, dear friends !

  1. Bijna niet te gloven dat er zoveel hexies in dat blik zitten. Maar erg slim om er flink wat vooruit te snijden en dat lekker mee te nemen op vakantie. Veel plezier!

  7. Ha Nadine, de vakantie kan beginnen! Ik werk ook liever met hexie vormen dan met vierkantjes. Zou het doosje gevuld zijn met bloemen als je terugkomt?

  8. Are you sure???...Maybe you should go back and count them again.

    Just teasing, you are smart to get your project ready for vacation. I do the same thing, and for me - getting is ready is as much fun as making it.

  20. It doesn't seem possible that a quilt of that size would fit in that box! Have fun with all those hexies - I did a lot of cutting a week or so ago, it's well worth it I think.

  21. I love having everything ready to go in one spot. Easy to pick it up and get a hexie or two basted when it's all ready to go like that! :)

    It makes it so easy to just pick it up and stitch.
