You might think, given the unfinished state of my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt, that I’d easily be able to resist making more of these.
You’d be mistaken. The batch in the bowl is mostly from Kaffe Fassett Collective scraps, and OMG, they are so irresistably pretty!
These are the 1″ size. I’ve been pretending to clean up the studio by cutting lots of little scraps into hexie fodder. They fit so nicely into Talenti gelato containers. (Gotta love a good ‘reuse’ plan!)
Since this photo was taken I’ve filled up the second jar. I’m going to stop there, for now. These will be my portable project for some time to come.
Don’t know yet what they’re going to become. There’s been some talk, among my local sewing friends, of some kind of 1″ hexie swap. I’ll be ready, if it happens.
If it doesn’t, I might just leave them in this bowl on my coffee table, as decor. I could claim that’s healthier than having a bowl of candy around, but given the gelato jar component of this project that might not fly.
