Some of This, Some of That
How did I figure the area of the hexies? The formula is the Area of a regular hexagon is equal to 3 times the square root of 3 over 2 then multiplied by the side squared. It came out to 16.24 square inches times 3 (since I made 3) or 48.72 sq inches . Dividing that by the 1512 square inches of fabric in a yard, my real use was 0.032 yds. LOL - the easy way: each hexie needs a 4 1/2" square to make it. That works out to 0.04 yds for the 3, and really that's more accurate as I created some scraps as I fussy cut. Can you tell I like geometry?
Finally, I made a block for My Small World - that used up a mere 0.01 yd (all the blocks are tiny - this one is the biggest - 4.5" unfinished) of scraps. So my YTD total has grown to 28.42 yds of the 34 yds I should have used to reach my goal. For Slow Sunday Stitching, I'm going to start making 3 more hexies. They have segments so they take longer than doing regular ones. I'll be making a few yellow blocks for the RSC 2018, too.
I'll also be linking to Sunday Stash, Design Wall Monday (although there's nothing new on it), Oh Scrap, and a few others. See which under the More tab above.
Blessings to all. Have a restful Lord's day.
