New Hexie Project Prep

Have you seen my new hexagon EPP (English Paper Piecing) project yet?  I've posted a few in progress pics on Instagram and Facebook recently.  I've just begun stitching the pieces together.  This is how it all begins.  I like to cut out my hexagon shapes with the Accuquilt die.  I favor the smallest size.

For this project, I cut all my fabrics from my Island Batik stash.  

I cut out a variety of sunset colors, pinks, yellows, oranges.

A variety of blues, some stormy, some twilight.

And black too, some solid, some not.

More sunset hexies.  Can you guess what I'm making?

This is about one third of the hexies I basted, separated into three colors, and organized in a cross stitch floss box.  I like this size hexagon because they fit so well in these boxes.  Someday maybe I can have a different box for each color, like an artist's palette, ready to "paint" any design I dream up.  That's the goal ~ to turn all my scraps into basted hexagons, ready to stitch. I'll be posting updates periodically as I work on this project.  It's a slow one.  I hope you enjoy watching it come together as much as I do.
