Hand piecing all scraps

This is the latest hand piecing project. At this point I think it will be a lap robe. These are all scraps I have pulled out of left over bags of scraps. I try and save anything over the size of a quarter because I applique.

I was surprised at three afternoons of cutting and piecing have made all these hexagons. Now the fun part is making sure no two are alike when I piece the top together.

The hexagons are about 1 3/4 inches on a side. Some people do this method in EPP. But I chose to make sure I hand stitched them with seam allowances and pressed the seams to the directions I wanted them to go.
Scraps can be fun to work with and also basically a free project because the fabric is already paid for. Chris
