Inspiration of the Week - Hexie Rings

This week our inspiration is for all you out there who need portable projects that use up scraps. Hexies are one of the best portable projects available. Haven't done hexies before? Prepare to be inspired!

Rebecca of Parsley is the New Black started making hexagon flowers a few years ago as a way of having a portable project during her travels. She had no real plan in mind aside from putting those scraps to use. Eventually she had enough that she had to do something with them, and the idea for a flower field was born. She strung her hexies into rings and used a lovely teal backdrop to make the flowers pop.

She quilted pebble texture and some echo lines to complement the flower rings.

It's just gorgeous, and we know we have more than enough scraps to accomplish this too! See more about Rebecca's quilt here. Thanks for sharing, Rebecca!
