Hexagons Contained

I bought this cute little container yesterday at Joann's. Hexagons were taking on a life of their own, sitting down wherever they liked, in the most uninviting places.
My hope is that this gets too small very quickly.
That would mean a whole lot of progress. For now, it gets all my hexi's off the coffee table and the side table and the floor and everywhere else they have scattered themselves.

It's got a top tray for threads, needles and scissors, a middle tray for unfinished and not-put- together hexagons and a bottom tray for put-together hexagons. Perfect for now!

I found that EQ7 had a hexagon block layout.
Now I have a map of what I am doing.

I divided up my illustration into fourths, to help me see what I needed.
Always easier to see the parts, other than the "Big Picture".

Here is the start of my "following directions". I can do that if I write them! LOL

And I am still working on my zigzag quilt. Borders are coming along.

Note to self: Finish the top today. Looks like all the zigs have zagged in all the right places!

Love those hexagons...what size are they and what template did you use--paper piecing? I need to bash my stash of orphan fabrics and this is soooo pretty, old0fashioned yet modern in fabric choices. Julierose--a new follower

You are going to have that hexie done before you know it.

Isn't JoAnn's just wonderful for fun containers? Looks like the maker of this one had hexi's in mind for sure! I'm sure wishing I had waited to a later version of EQ - I have the first one which is not fun to work with at all and I can't upgrade it to 7!
