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.
