trend alert, hexies

Yup, you heard it here first, english paper-pieced hexagons are the new hot thing! Wait, what? You already knew? I'm the last person on the entire blogplanet to post about them? Damn.

I'm auditing background colors for my vintage feed sack hexi semi-flowers.

I want to do a two-tone monochromatic pieced background, with the florets appliqued randomly on top.

I think pink has already won my heart.

Also considering doing several different versions, I have a TON of scraps...and I don't want there to be too many florets in the design. But I am getting a little bored with making them, at least out of this fabric!
