OK. This is not the best picture of my Hexies, but it is all I have until I take more later.

Hexie flowers

They are 1 inch across from point to point, smaller than a quarter. Don't ask how big the diamonds and the triangles are all I know is they are tiny.  I am using the "English Paper piecing" method.  I don't know how big it will end up being so I will keep adding flowers on it until I get bored. It is so much more easier to make the flowers than it is to add them to the rest of the group.  I plan on making each flower from different blues fabric with out duplicating a print.
I am not doing that with the yellow and the white path is any white on white scrap that I can find.  It is amazing how small the triangles are. Now I feel guilty of throwing away some of my small scraps. (not really, if you saw how much I still have.)

I was inspired By Hetty's flowers that she does. You should check out her blog. I love it.
