I have been having fun making Hexies. I tell you they are like chips, you just cannot make one!

This is going to be a pillow. I thought just this strip down one of the sides and then stitch around them with big stitch quilting.

I have quite a few left over so I was thinking of making pot holders.

My friend Elaine brought over her Hexie Quilt, I forgot to ask her how many Hexies she made for this beautiful Flower Garden Quilt.  The top is done and she is ready to sandwich it and start the hand quilting.  I just love the yellow border, it is a true 1930's color to match her 1930's fabrics.  It is just amazing!

She kindly gave me the hexies she still had cut!  Now I do not think I will make a quilt that large but I sure can have a lot of fun with these prints!

If you would like to give hexies a try, now would be a great time.

  1. Love your patriotic hexies. Will look fabulous in a cushion. Looks like you are having fun with them. I haven't seen the mylar hexies before - seems very practical to have something re-usable.

    It was also great to see you had a fabulous Fourth of July celebration. Gotta love those summer times!

  2. Looks great Jane. I have made several hexie quilts presently I am using paper for my 1.5 inch hexies

  3. How cute those pot holders will be with these little hexagons! Your friend's quilt is stunning! Love the yellow border! Have fun!

  4. I love your friend's quilt...beautiful! Hexies still scare me, but I'll give it my best shot. :O)

  5. I love those hexies! Have you seen Hexigon Alley? Your patriotic colors will make a outstanding pillow!

  6. Wow! what a fabulous quilt Elaine made.
    Lovin" the hexies you are putting together.

  7. Love hexi's...Your freind squilt is absolutely beautiful. And you are right they are very addicting and unlike chips they don't go in your tummy


I always love to hear your thoughts!
