Hexagon patchwork

A few photos of my latest stitchy project.  

This started as a way to use up a few scraps of fabric.  I merrily stitched away with no real purpose, just enjoying the little lovelies taking shape.  

Then the idea formed for them to become a picnic blanket.  They could easily have become a bag or a cushion but no, a picnic blanket they will be!  
I have worked out that I will need 1200 of these little 1 inch hexagons to make a decent sized blanket so this is very much a long term project!  

 I love the way they mount up when you have a few spare moments to stitch away....

However it may be summer 2015 before they resemble a blanket!
