Hi everyone,I haven't been on for ages,thought I would up date.
Well, as you know we crafters always have 10 things on the go all at the same time.I have decided to try and catch up with things ,and finish a few.
Finished the Aran cardie,made my grandsons birthday card,made a couple of necklaces whew getting there.
I have also started a Christmas tree box for a friend(made lots of these in the past,didn't think I would ever make another one,but every year someone asks me to]
the front and back of Bryce's 4th birthday card.

Christmas tree sweet box ,will put a pic of finished box on later.

The hexis are all finished and stitched together,no idea what to do with the edges,any ideas gratefully received.Happy crafting everyone.

Some News ...

just wanted to share a few pictures.
It is progressing well - this project. It is beginning to look like a nice quilt! :-D
3 row finished - and put together ...
"flowers" for the next row are almost ready....
and some of the stitcheries are already done!
I am really loving this ... can't decide if it should turn out like a nice bed-spread, or a nice "comforter" on the sofa ... Guess it is going to be on the sofa ... i don't want to "hide" it in the bedroom! ;-)
Last week I received Issue 4 of the Vignette Magazine ... I am definitely going to try out Leanne's suggestion for quilting ... when I reach that point! :-D
Happy Hexing !

Hexagon Rows

I have been joining blocks and joining blocks.....
And I now have my three and a half rows ready for the stitched white hexagons to be done before I then join the rows together.....
And look what I have done.....
Set myself a goal to have this completed by the end of 2011.....
Not sure if that was such a great idea as I think I am going to hand quilt it the same as Leanne has done in "Vignette" Issue 4......
Until next time, Happy Stitching....

So my finger is healed and now I can go further with my project. The garden is apllicated on the backgroud fabric and now I much choose how to quilt.
Also I made two flowers this week, one 3/4 inch and one 1/2 inch.

A newcomer

Hi everybody! This is my first post, and I am so happy to be a member of this blog! I haven`t started on my hexagon quilt yet, but yesterday I ordered 600 hexagon paper templates :) As soon as they arrive I will get to it. I think I will use fabrics from my scrap collection on this first quilt. Can`t wait to get started!

Have fun sewing!

Dusted off the Hexi Box

 I thought I had better dig out the hexi's this week as they have been tucked away since the retreat and I have been keeping myself busy with retreat projects and swap projects.....
I have now joined the last 18 blocks into blooms of four with a white
centre and sorted the ones that have a white corner hexagon.......
So no more individual blooms floating around the house....
I now have three and a half rows to join together......
Until next time, Happy Stitching

My First Hexies

Hi I have just started making hexies. I am plan these to go into a single bed quilt for my adorable grand daughter, who has not long gone into a big bed. She had to give up her baby bed for her new brother due soon. I am making them out of my scrap stash. I thought it would be a fun way to try and use some up. lol 


It's been a while since i posted about my hexagons. I've been slowly adding to the pile. Not sure how many since i last posted so i just took a photo of the lot.
& all spread out
 I love the bright colours.
Happy Stitching,

A new hexagon quilt!

Its been a while since I last posted on here too but life gets in the road sometimes LOL. I have finished as far as I can go with my Lily and Will quilt. Just waiting on border fabric and then I'll get it organised so it can be quilted next Autumn. I have already started a new one though. Thought I would like to try 3/4" hexies and have totally jumped out of my comfort zone with the fabrics too. The jelly roll is 'Fresh flowers' by Deb Strain for Moda. I was totally taken in by the gerberas and hope that it will not be too bright for my liking. I want it to be totally different than the vignette quilt so we will have to see how it evolves. They are just so addictive and I even have my mum trying a 1" quilt of all blues/whites. Someone else on here was doing one very similar.

Hi - my very first entry!

Well, I am a blog-newbie (never wrote anything before) ... but I have been following this blog for the past months. It is great to see how many different possibilities this hexagon quilt has.
So, I thought that I would try it out, and also enter some pictures.
I am working on the scrappy look - OK, I admit not all the fabrics come from my stash - but it is allowed to purchase scraps too - right !? ;-)
I only got 250 paper templates to work with - so I have to continously sew blocks together to "liberate" templates - so 2 rows done, the 3rd is on its way!
So, looking forward to continue following this blog - and sometimes add some news of my own!
Have a great day!

Addicted to hexagons and late starting blogger!

Have been viewing for a few months now the great work, so just had to get myself organised and join in the fun of making hexagons and blogging . . . so here goes.  My fabric is from Jelly Roll Curio. I found it quite easy to cut from the jelly roll.
