The Vignette Hexagon Quilt.

Hey everyone!

Leanne and Myself have decided to make the 'Hexagon Quilt' in issue 2 and 3 of Leanne Beasley's Vignette magazine after seeing the original in the flesh. Talk about beautiful!


For me, I have decided that I will use only scraps (as I have SO much, but don't hold me to it) and plan to make mine in-between projects if I don't have much hand sewing going on!

Why not.....thanks Sarah.....

Karen 'n Chris said...

Yes please. This is also something I can do from scraps and what bits and pieces I havent got packed away. Doesnt take up much space. Hand work is what I am restricted to right now.

De said...

Im in - Leanne had mentioned it briefly the other day! I will be using my stash too I think :) and it will definately be an in between project.

Laura VanVleet said...

Wow. Sounds like fun!

Isabella said...

OK count me in too I have started anyway as you know (white Jellyrolls)

Josie said...

Count me in please. I'm going to be stash diving for this one too. Makes it feel like a 'freebie'.... who am I kidding!

Lyn said...

I'm tempted-I like your idea of having something to hand stitch in between other projects- what sort of pace would be set in doing it?

Quilt Kitty said...

I've resisted for as long as I can & can do it no more. I want to join in too Sarah. Thanks Tracee xx

Jo in TAS said...

Kathy said...

I will join in using stash fabric. What a great idea to all be doing this together.

I would love to join in! I have fabric ready and hexagons have just arrived. So happy to find this blog!

bettsylyn said...

I was rummaging today and found some fabric I think will work - I have the papers and even the glue stick so I guess the last thing to do is join in here. Looking forward to fun....

Q said...

Hi, I commented earlier saying I was tempted, well can't resist any longer so can I join in the fun with the rest of you.

Kristen said...

I've been trying to finish a "grandmother's flower garden" quilt for 10 years. I've started it up again and am working fast and furious on it...I'd love to join you all! I've been posting pictures for the last couple of months on my blog. My fabric is 10 years old so when I finish this one I of course want to make another with all new fabrics...shhhh, don't tell my husband!

Charlie and Wendy said...

Yes please, I have been looking through my fabrics and would love to join in.

rosie said...

Thank you

Maria said...

I have been seeing hexies on many blogs lately and thought I would love to have a go. Have only done a few hexies for the Biggest Hexagon Quilt and really enjoyed it.
Like Sue I would like to know if there are intructions etc.
Thanks.

Jolanda said...

I have buy the vignette in Holland and i am in love on the hexagon with stitchery.
Thank you.

FIONA said...

Hi - I would love to join the Vignette Hexagon Quilt group! Please count me in!! Fiona H xx

Anne-Mette said...

I am tempted too. Well, I don't have the magazine, but I think, I can managed without ;-). I am making hexagone flowers already and find those "put-in-between-hexagons" lovely. They would be just perfect for little quilt.

susanm said...

I would love to join and am going to make a scrappy one. As if I need something more to do but cant resist this. It will be nice to have a moving project.

Sandy at Cookies and Cream Craft said...

I can't resist either! I don't know where I'll get the time. I do enjoy making hexagons, and, of course, like everyone else my stash is there to use. Although I did get some new fat quarters of a few new lines. Thanks, Leanne and Sarah. Sandy

Jeanne said...

I am new to this blog and very excited as I started making hexagons with oriental fabrics a month or so ago. I was moving at a good pace in the beginning. This will help me to stay on task. I hope. Jeanne

Vicki ♥ said...

I don't know if this blog is still open to adding people, but I would like to join. I need to start a new hexie project to take with me to work this summer and fall. I don't have the pattern but I know how to make hexagons. I can't wait to see what all of you are working on.

Alison said...

I would like to join you all on your hexagon quilt journey. I need to do something with the quilt fabric I've been collecting and I think that this is the best way for me to get started on my first quilt.
