Hexagons take over

I started making hexagons to have something to do during the hockey games, but these hexies have taken on a life of their own.  I now have 37 hexies basted and ready to sew.

I thought I would like to make these into a tote like this one, so I started looking through my stash to see what fabrics I had that would coordinate.  I found these fabrics which I like

BUT,

I also found this fabric:

I just had to try a making a few hexagons featuring the little girls at play.

How could I resist? They were the perfect size for the 1 inch paper pieces I am using, and the colors were just right to go with the rest of the fabrics.

So now I have 3 little additions to my hexies so far.

See what I meant about taking on a life of it's own?  Stay tuned...

I'm linking up with Jessica at Life Under Quilts who literally wrote the book on English Paper Piecing.
