If you haven't visited Bonnie Hunter's site, you have missed lots of good quilt patterns, books and ideas. Many of them are free, such as the hexagon pincushion I've linked here. Bonnie's pictures make her tutorials easy for any level of quilter to follow. This tutorial is not about how to do the hexagons, but about how to make the pincushion. That's okay, we all know how to make the hexagons, right?
Bonnie mentioned in her post that they would make great mug rugs, too. I'm sure you can think of many ways to use hexagons made into blocks like this. Have fun, and investigate all the other wonderful things on Bonnie's site, too.
