Multiplying Like Little Bunnies

I'm still plugging away on my hexagons. It is so relaxing working on these. I get a lot done in one sitting -- more then I thought I would. And I get to work on them while watching TV so it is one crafting project that I do regularly during the week.

I'm considering a layout like this:


But I have a ways to go before I even have to consider a final layout.

And the title of this post...multiplying like bunnies? I have had to expand my plastic shoe box organizational system to TWO boxes:



Edited to add:
I should note that I first saw the clothes pin idea on this photo on Flicker by Alex of Moonstitches. She is making a very large star quilt...her fabrics are just beautiful. Her blog is also really nice...gorgeous projects and photos.

Jen, Thanks for the comment on my red and white hex quilt at flickr. Yours is looking fab - I see we are both afflicted by the paper piecing bug :-) Jess.

Jen, I absolutely love your hexagons! The colors and layout are great. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product. I agree with you that hand work is very relaxing. I have been working on yo-yo's check them out on my newest post. I love them!

I love your hexagons. I am addicted to them and look forward to seeing what a fabric will look like as a hexagon! I keep them in biscute tins and ready to go in my sewing bag.

I'm a hexagon girl too! Yours look beautiful and vibrant. And I totally agree with you-- handwork is relaxing, and a nice way to wind down in the evening after a busy day.
