having fun with hexagons

I've seen some cute hexagons lately and had to join in the fun. These are all from some scraps that I had stashed away. I decided to make a boy quilt since I seem to be making girl ones so much lately. I am doing these with the english paper piecing method. It's time consuming but very enjoyable to keep my hands busy when I get a chance to sit down.

This is to give you an idea of the size of the hexagons.

The backing. So far I've cut out hexagons from a diamond catalog and a Family Circle magazine. It's quite fun to see the pictures on the back. It's like the diamond catalog on the back is my guilty pleasure. :)

I absolutely LOVE this quilt!
Where did you get that fabric with the lines and cursive writing! It's to die for!

I hope your doing well. I haven't seen much from you lately. Just thinking of you!
Are you starting to feel a hint of fall as we are here? I look hard for it each day!
