Frosty Flakes....

so who's doing these Frosty Flakes BOM?  ME ME ME!

I purchased a pack of Japanese Christmas prints at Spring Quilt Market in 2009 and I thought this was the perfect project to use these!

How fun and cute and easy/quick to do...sorta :)  I spent last night preparing my mini hexies and what I did was use some of my old used 3/4" paper piece hexies and took a 1/4" off all their sizes and WAHLA - 1/2" hexies papers!

Now I used my newest notion, Sewline  Glue Pen (I LOVE THIS PEN) to hold the fabric to the paper, then I started stitching while watching Eureka (I LOVE that show :)) and finished piecing my hexies!  Let me say this hexies is TINY :)

Now I have to go out today and shop for threads and bead to finish the rest.


  1. So cute Toni! I think I am going to do this BOM too! Not started yet.

  2. ME!! But I can't get the button to work on my blog and I'm not computer smart enough to fix it. :(

    OH MY GOODNESS! The Japanese Christmas fabric is beautiful.

    I had some 3/4" hexes also and I just left them that side. You are so right about them being tiny but I love them.

  3. Very cute! Another BOM I just may have to start! :)

  4. My plan is to do the blocks. Picked out my fabric. I have not ever worked with such little hexies so it will be a challenge doing that.
