Pattern Description:

Nothing is quite so pleasing to me as stacks of perfectly nesting little hexagons. Reminiscent of the quilting technique of English Paper Piecing, these little hexies are a great way to play with color. Pick your own rainbow of colors, or choose a palette of neutrals. If you love one color intensely, highlight it with a background neutral colors as in the smaller version. The color possibilities are endless.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.

I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
