Scrappy Hexie blocks in orange, purple, grey, teal, and pink
I have been working on my scrappy hexie blocks when I have time. This is the next group of finished blocks in orange, teal, purple, pink, and grey.
These 18 blocks will be added to the finished block pile which will mean I have a total of 43 finished hexagon blocks. I will have to see what other colours I might be missing.
Green Scrappy Hexie Blocks
Today I finished 5 more scrappy hexie blocks. I now have a total of 25 scrappy hexie blocks in green, yellow, red, and blue.
Yellow Scrappy Hexie Blocks
I am on a roll. Today I finished 8 scrappy hexie blocks. I don’t piece with a lot of yellow so when I saw a bag of yellow scraps/strings that someone had donated to the destash at our guild meeting, I snatched it up. Yellow is such a happy, cheerful colour. These blocks will definitely brighten up the finished quilt.
Red Scrappy Hexie Blocks
I am enjoying making these scrappy hexie blocks. Today I decided to dive into the red scraps and I managed to finish 5 red scrappy hexie blocks.
I fell in love with the quilt, Scrappy Hexies in the March / April 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine and it has been on my “To Do” list since then.

The quilt is a design by Bea Lee from www.beaquilter.com .

I started my blocks today and I finished my first 7 blocks from my blue scraps.

The pattern in the magazine suggests tracing the hexagon pattern pieces from the magazine pullout section onto template plastic. However, I recently used my discount coupon for Joann’s to purchase a large hexagon shaped ruler which has made trimming the blocks so much easier than using template plastic.
