Hexagons. They're happening.

I spent most of last weekend in my rocking chair with a sweaty, feverish toddler on me.  Oooh, my tailbone is sore! Anyway, there is a limit to how many times I can check my email on my iPhone so I eventually got a little hexagon sewing in too.
 When the Little One recovered she decided hexagons are pretty fun to crush, scatter and/or collect.
 I see how these hexagons can be addicting. Simple, mindless sewing. You get the tactile and visual rewards of stitching without having to make any actual design decisions. A long drive lays ahead of us in the near future and I'm going to make sure I have plenty little templates cut out for the journey.

I love eng paper piecing for the same reason. just sew sew sew, and in the end you have something very pretty that you really didn't have to think about..

What do you plan to do with your hexagons?
since seeing them on your blog I have started doing some and am now totally addicted every night with my feet up in front of the telly once the little one's are in bed.
Happy quilting.
