EPP Tuesday update

Once again I am linking up with Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches where we are Piecing Ourselves Together. Do go and visit Anthea - she has a brilliant little Christmas tree ornament made with 1/2" hexies which is brilliant for using up all those little scraps of Christmas fabric.

I have been thinking about how I am going to use my Hexathon hexies and had the idea of them falling (raining) down a quilt into a heap like jewels. This is my sort of plan.
I would use the little ones in the border down the left hand side and bottom of the quilt.
I laid all my blocks out on the grey fabric that I plan to use and quickly discovered that random was not going to be an option so I set about trying to organise a sort of wash of colour and this is what I came up with.

I have not started yet so nothing is set in stone - all comments welcome!

Meanwhile I have made a little progress putting together my blue swap hexies.
And some more have arrived - from the Netherlands
and from Australia.
Right - I'm off to find my Christmas fabrics!
Bye for now.

What great ideas you're coming up for your "falling hexies." Can't wait to see what you decide on. The blue hexie flowers are wonderful.

Well Lin my friend, I am not very imaginative so I won't comment on the Morris layout, but I'm sure you'll do a great job when you've decided!
Your blue flowers with their yellow surrounds look so cheery, they're coming along beautifully! x

How difficult to organise the layout colours. When I am in doubt with colour schemes I always pin things to the wall opposite my bed - bit difficult with your hexies, and study the colours or change them around the next day.

I'm soooo far behind with reading everyone's blogs .......looks like I should have been sending you a blue Hexie???? Do you still need some & what measurements?
