turns out

I might actually enjoy applique and hexagons.   I held off for as long as I could, but I just couldn't resist how cute these little hexagons are.  I don't know that I will ever make a quilt with them, but they are so fun to add to projects.  

These hexagons made their way to a bib.

Now that my baby is 8(!) months and eating solid food, I'm finding that our bibs from the older kids are pretty much worn out.  I made couple of these several months ago as an easy quick project.  I just think they are adorable, so I whipped up a few more for the babe and a few for my shop

and I always love a stack of quilts, so of course I love a stack of bibs...it's like a bib sandwich.

pattern can be found here.

What ever you make will always be darling, Nettie. You just have that eye for color and designs. Are you putting them on etsy?

Great use for the hexies. My sis is trying to get me to try them, too. I like that you found a small way to do them, without diving in to a whole quilt. Nice work!

Those three little hexagons on linen made with fabrics in MY stash, adorable, such a favourite colour combination.

Yes I agree, appliqué is used extensively in quilting. "Dresden Plate" and "Sunbonnet Sue" are two examples of traditional American quilt blocks that are constructed with both patchwork and appliqué.
