Pieced Hexies Stars!

Lately I feel like I am running on high speed all the time.

So many ideas.

Remember that package of lovely batik scraps I blogged about last month. 

The package from Sondra. 

And from that package this project was started. 

Well she sent more.

And thus those scrappy Cogs rosettes went to the next level.

Now I have toyed with the idea of creating “Star” patterns for the Pieced Hexies designs for a few months.  But truly I have been just running to keep up with all that is happening here.

But now I had no excuse.

This is the pattern I created.

It is the first in a series of Pieced Hexies STAR patterns that I will be sharing with you on the blog. This one is named SONDRA.    It is composed of COGS & TUMBLER Pieced Hexies.



You will find a PDF link at the top of the right hand side column on the blog.  The PDF will give you all the info necessary to make the “Pieced Hexies Sondra Star”.  You will need a copy of my Pieced Hexies book to make the actual COGS & TUMBLER hexie designs.



The PDF even gives you a blank design page so you can color in your own design!  I would love to see what you color and/or make.  Please either email me or share your own creations on the Pieced Hexies with Mickey Depre facebook page.









Oh…and here is one of my Sondra Stars….now I just need to find the time to sew it together.  Maybe tomorrow I will start during Downton Abbey.  “)

Thanks so VERY much for a free pattern. Your energy (like Our Bonnie Hunter's) just blows me away.
I have had my own interest in making Hexies rekindled by you.
So thanks for that too!!!

Thank you so much for this pattern. I was trying to work it out on my own from your picture - but this will allow me to get out the "pieced hexie" book and just pull it all together. I am on the list for the notification of registration for the class in August. So hoping that I will be lucky enough to be one of the 60 attendees.
