TINY HEXIES make A Tiny Flower

These little 1/2 inch hexies were fun to play with. I used Inklingo to print the shapes on the pink fabric, cut them apart and hand stitched them together. This first pic shows the beginning of one edge pressed under to get ready to applique.

As I was hand-piecing, it looked like the pic below.  Look closely and you can see the faint blue stitching lines and the "x" for the crosshairs... that's how the block comes together so perfectly every single time. Love it:

But my favorite is how it looks on the backside of the block after pressing. I just get a real kick out of how the seam allowances at the interesections twirl around... too cute. Ok, I don't get out much! lol

This is a super shortie post tonight. Time to get packed up for Friendship Group tomorrow and then hit the hay -- I've been up since 4:15 this morning! I think I have holes in my head! lol

Funny :) I made up one of these hexie units today too :)) You've used pretty fabrics in yours :) Are these for Kathy Tracy challenge for October?
I think both you and me need to get out more 'cos I too get a little kick out of the twirling seams, LOL... But now I need to hit the sack ;) hugs Ellyx
