Scrappy hexagon quilts are great for several reasons.

You can sew hexies virtually anywhere, for instance when travelling or on holidays.

It is good to go back to your hexagon quilt when you feel like you need a break from other types of sewing, when you are between big projects or just for a relaxing day.

It is also a good way to improve your stitching skills.
