Hex hex hex

My version of Katy's Hexy MF quilt, to be called "I never promised you a rose garden", is well under way.  Here it is scattered in the floor.

Untitled

Large hex flowers: 1 out of 4 made
Medium hexies (plus black spacing hexies): 20 out of 37 made
Small hex flowers: 5 out of 12 made
Leaves: 20 out of 32 made (using the freezer paper method for preparing applique shapes)
Circle buds: 17 out of 20 made (using the same method)
Vines: 0 out of 4 made

Total shapes made: 63 out of 109 = 58% so just over half way in making the shapes although I will need to applique them all on of course, as well as joining all the medium hex flowers into one big hexagon.  As a reminder, this is where I'm headed.

  14. Lovely. I've just decided cutting templates is not any fun, so I've ordered 75 paper hexies, and I'm starting on mine as soon as they arrive!
