I have a new obsession – and it is one that I can do in front of the TV at night without much need for brain power – which is good because at the end of the day I am seriously lacking in brain power!
Hexies! I bought 2 charm packs of Simply Color by V & Co from Quilting Lodge. Cut one of them into quarters and I started basting. The pictures that follow show about 1/2 of the squares – just over 100 hexies.
Ok, I admit it, I had a lot of fun photographing my hexies – sorry for all the pictures 🙂
Are you wondering yet what I am planning on doing with all these hexies?
When I went to The Intrepid Thread last weekend I bought some stunning Essex Linen by Kaufman. I am planning on using the hexies and the linen to make some new pillows for my bedroom. I’m sure my husband will just LOVE the girly colors – LOL.
Here are a couple designs I have been playing with:
At this point I have way more hexies than I need for my pillows but I am enjoying making them, so I might stop when I have one whole charm pack made…we’ll see!
What have you all be working on?
On Monday I am going to share with my Sewing/Quilting New Years Resolution list!
I love your hexies! My 2013 goal is to finish my hexi quilt.
Love the hexies! I have a hexie quilt on my 2013 list of things to make. I really love the first layout design. Its my favorite.
I’m pretty obsessed with them too! I really like the second layout!
Where did you get your paper pieces? Thanks
I understand that ! My mom gave me a Circut for xmas and it cuts all the shapes.. whoot ! I like your new Blog Banner..
Love the Hexie’s. I’m not into them yet. They are pretty. I like all the pictures…
Love the hexies and all the pictures! I need to try my hand at them!
Well Aaron might not like the “girlie”colors,but I sure like them!
Cute hexies! And they are not girly colours!! They are bright colours. If he’s anything like my husband he doesn’t notice “things”, and when I show him my creations I get a smile, a nod, and a “that’s nice”!
Oooh, fun! I can’t wait for the Saltwater hexie kits to come out, I have a serious case of the wanties 😀
I love them. I’ve been working on a scrappy hexie longterm project. I love doing it at night watching a series or movie with my feet up. It takes ages, but i promissed my husband a queensize quilt of them before or when we retire! (i’m 36 now (-;) it’s a rea
Good way to get rid of my small scraps too!
You have caught the hexi bug! Love the Simply Color fabrics, I started quilting my quilt I made with a layer cake of it. So pretty. I like the creative ways you are arranging your hexis
I love that fabric line. I recently caught the hexie bug too. So great for using up scraps!
I’ve been working on a hexagon quilt for … oh, close to 25 years. =) It’s flowers, but it’s scraps from lots of projects. Every once in a while I make some more and add a bit to the slowly growing quiltlet. They are addictive! I love the fabrics you used, and they will definitely make great pillows.
Love these, adorable. Love the first design! You are such an inspiration, Melissa! You have me looking up how to make these!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxx
