Way back in March, I started on these hexagons. They are 1/2 inch in size, quite small, but oh-so-fun! I used a *Sent With Love* honey bun from Moda, which the girls cut up into little rectangles for me, so I could just trim up and sew down onto the papers from Paper Pieces. (I love their papers!) It is funny, because Anna loves pink, so since she helped cut the pieces, she is like *mom, you should give this to me, when it's done!* What she doesn't know, is it will be for her! What I plan to do, is stitch all the hexagons together, in a big hexagon / flower shape, and then add strips of honey buns to make it bigger, if need be, so it will be like a lap quilt. I have NO idea how big this will be when I get all the hexagons together!
So on to the little give-away! :o) How many hexagons are in this tin?! (Recognize the tin, Shirley! Perfect for this project!!!) Take into consideration, the hexagons are 1/2 inch, so they are pretty small! And I used a whole honey bun, minus a little that the girls cut too small... :o) The tin is about 7" wide by 4" tall, and is pretty much FULL! :o) Just to get you into the right neighborhood, I will give one small hint -- it is more than 500 but less than 1000 hexagons! I will choose the person closest to the right number, on Monday morning, June 21st, and mail out a little surprise to them! :o)
P.S. How do I know the number?! We were all curious, so the girls and I sat down and counted them! I know, we are a bit crazy... :o))))
