Hexagons and Grandsons

Years ago I inherited a dustbin bag and hat box FULL of hexagons already cut, sewn to templates and bagged in individual fabric designs. Over time I have used many of these hexies for quilting projects. I also taught an African lady who was visiting our church for a year, how to make a quilt from them, she returned to Africa with bags of them to carry on at home.
When my daughter and her husband were staying with us before moving out to South Africa I taught her how to join the hexies and she put together a number of blocks but they left before I got around to teaching her how to put them into a quilt.
So I have just got around to appliquéing them onto a sheet to then put into a quilt for her.
 Lets see how long this takes me !!
 I have just received the photo's below of my Grandsons so thought I would add those too

Wonderful pics of the boys - great hexies (just not sure I have that kind of patience). Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!

I look forward to seeing what project you are working on with each post. This one is especially near and dear to my heart, because my grandma made me a quilt using this pattern, for our wedding gift. I remains one of my treasured possessions. What a special gift to share with others. Your grandsons are growing up so quickly, and are nice looking guys.

Enjoy your weekend!
