Received my lovely squares also! I want to start making hexagons, but need to finish other projects first. I'm one of those people that has to finish projects before I can start another. What is wrong with me!LOL

Susie, I for one would love to be that dedicated to one project at a time, but alas, I was not blessed with that gene! I see wayyy too many projects I want to try - guess you could call me a block 'n' top collector!!

Susie I would go nuts! I start way more than I ever finish, and have even more waiting that I'll probably never even get to, but I wouldn't have it any other way. There's always something to occupy my interests when one project starts losing my attention. That way I can come back to it later with fresh perspective and (hopefully) more inspiration. :)

....at least thats how I attempt to rationalize having so many things going on at once.

Hey y'all - I was terribly rude and never posted the pic of my 4" hexes. Here you go... these are the ones that I sent in. Thinking I may take the fabulous ones I got in return to the hospital with me so I can play some in the downtime. Since I don't sleep so well anyway (and I started that when I had Sammy) I figure I might like to have something just for me to work on... especially since I am making this quilt for my Sapphy Jean!

Gerda, thanks, awesome quilts. Since the hexie quilt is before she started also posting in English, is the center 'diamond' one piece of fabric?

Yes, it seems to be - I think she started making this before she started blogging in mid February 2008. It looks to me like she appliqued on top of separate diamonds - I noticed that some of the centre diamonds are very floofy - they aren't flat - what I will/would be doing is making a panel of fabric from different diamonds, and appliqueing the hexies on top. She doesn't really say how she did it, but it seems simple enough to me.

I also have seen a Great Hexagon swap going on on a couple of blogs - many are just the rings with the centre open. I've done some checking, but never found out why they were making them like this. Kinda neat idea, though.

Does anyone know how to do other shapes like diamonds or triangles an easy way without using templetes? I have never tried templetes, but doing hexies this way is so easy, I would like to try some other shapes an easy way.

I haven't come across any, Gail - I will try to remember to keep my eyes open for anything, though.
