Be A Hexie Queen


The final day of the blog hop; and my day to show you what I've made with my very first hexies.
I have always steered clear of hexies because of that tedious shape!!  But, alas...it isn't bad at all!!
Now, I am not saying I am going to make a bed size quilt yet; but I at least know more about them now. 

Thank goodness for Madame Samm and Debbie; or I probably never would have tried this. And we have Connecting Threads as our sponsor...they are wonderful!! Thank you guys!!!!!!

Now; my first project is a couple of candle mats. and they are made from 'Lucy Crab Shack'.

I stitched these by machine and turned them right side out...quick and easy!! Two hexie flower candle mats.

The second project is a baby quilt....for this one; I cut out the hexies and machine appliqued them onto the background. I know; easy way out!!  That was my first thought until I made the candle mats....I kind of enjoyed doing them. But this quilt; I saw on Craftsy and loved it...so;


 Same 'Lucy Crab Shack' fabric for the hexies...I love the softness of this quilt. I machine quilted it on my wonderful Tiara!!


I hope you enjoyed these projects and this blog hop...I have had lots of fun and learned something new that I will definitely try again. Now go and visit all of the others posting today...lol

  20. Now why didn't I think of that, Marjorie? It would have been simpler than piecing them in but then that was your idea! It made a lovely quilt for you! It would even work for an I spy or playing matching games, learning colors etc for the child.

    Cute candlemats too.

  57. Love your hexie projects, especially the modern quilt. I find they're great for using up scraps. I just fussy cut all the flowers from scraps that I made cushions for my dining rooms chairs more than 20 years ago! I knew that I could find a use for those scraps someday and just couldn't part with Laura Ashley leftovers! Thanks for sharing.
