One of my favorite blogs to follow is Quiltville by Bonnie K. Hunter. It's all about using your stash and sewing with scraps, with a focus on quilts. As I was browsing older posts today, I found a really nice hexagon English piecing tutorial. She explains it so much better than I could, so I will provide pictures of what I'm doing rather than a how-to from here on :)
If you're interested in using small pieces of fabric to create larger items, do follow her blog. I just ordered her two books - one directly from her and one from Amazon. I can't wait to get them!
