Well, tonight is "Hexagon" night at the PMQG meeting. We're learning all about paper piecing and we're going to share projects we've made using hexagons. We'll be breaking into small work groups to cut, baste, and piece together little 1" hexagons. Since I'm leading one of the small groups, I thought I should make myself a cute little "traveling hexagon" kit.
I recently bought the book I Love Patchwork by Rashida Coleman-Hale, and it has an adorable little travel sewing kit in it. I did modify the design a bit, the original had a little pincushion in the middle section, but I wouldn't be needing that for paper piecing. I added a pocket instead, and I also added a spool holder.
Now I can fit my templates, paper pieces, scissors, thread, and needles all into one cute (and very brightly colored) package. I'm really looking forward to seeing the quilt guild ladies tonight, and having a look at all of their wonderful hexagon creations!
