{Improv Hexies} Bee Block

Aug 31, 2012
Pin It September is my month in the {Sew} Beautiful Bee.  This is the second year of our bee and what I've noticed most about our group of ladies is an un-measurable amount of creativity.  We have an extremely talented group and we all seem to enjoy being let loose to explore.

So for my month, I am hopefully letting everyone do just that - with a little {Improv} Hexiness.  It all started with this block by Angela of Cut to Pieces.  I really wanted to do something with hexagons last year, but in the end wasn't quite sure where to go with it.  When searching flickr for hexi blocks, I found Angela's to be exactly what I wanted.  It's major element focuses on hexagons, but there are also little pieced bits that add some 'oomph' to the block.

Here is a version I made:

2012 sew beautiful bee block

I can't wait to see what the {Sew} Beautiful ladies come up with.

Vague Guidelines for {Improv Hexies} Block:
1.  finished block 14" (14 1/2" unfinished)
2.  major element of the block should focus on hexagons
3.  minor use of other color fabrics on solid Kona pfd.
4.  it's up to you how many hexagons you make.  Size of hexagons is also your preference.  Kati has some fantastic templates here.  Or I have a "rough" guide you can print that coordinates with the GO! Baby hexagon die if you have one.  (Small, Medium, Large from above photo)
5.  attach hexagons to the block using this method
6.  have fun with it! Pin It
