The Zig and Zag of Hexies
|2" EPP hexies from the Bella Collection|
|A string of 2" hexagons|
|The Zig and Zag of Hexies: 29" x 40"|
|Briar Rose fabrics|
|I cut small dresden plate blades from those charms|
|17 hexagons - Can you see Mr. Froggie sitting by the pond reading?|

And now for my smaller runner:
|The Zig and Zag of Hexies in a smaller size|
The larger Zig and Zag of Hexies is at my Craftsy shop. This really is a quick project because once the hexagons are stitched together and the paper is removed, I aligned them to the background fabric and used invisible monofilament thread and used a machine zigzag stitch (of course!) to stitch them down.
I do a lot of EPP in the Summer. It is so portable and only takes up a small ziplock baggie. This new runner will be a class sample when I teach this again in the Fall. But right now it hangs in my hall bathroom where I can admire it for all the happy colors!
