Hexies...........

Robyn has given a challenge to find some hexagon's .......
..........mmmmm ...........

this is a photo of mosaic floors I spotted in Melbourne.....


I made this bag some time ago when I was experimenting with hexies.....
it's fun but not practical..... too shallow.......
too easy to steal my money
if I had some in there


There has to be some snacks
Pumpkin Scones anyone
they look the right shape?


Last year's Stitch-A-Long required 1/2" hexagons.... 
a real challenge for me making them


This is the whole block.... you can see how many there were to make
Thanks to Marina, Carol and Lorraine for this lovely block
which I need to make up into something


My ongoing Christmas Hexi ornaments.....


They even have a special Hexie box.....
(I think we originally got chocolates in it - yummo!)


and a lovely card


I've had a few of these lovely 'quilt' cards from overseas
I just love them
love, love, love

Oh - and I have some templates.... for motivation..... for when I am going to get hooked on hexies


Have you got sexy hexies to show us
pop along to Robyn's and join in the fun

G'day

The mosaic flooring was a great find and how clever were those scones to organise themselves like that :)
Love all your hexie finds.

Hello Fiona,

I think I need to come to your kitchen straight away. Those scones look divine, I can see the steam coming out of them.
Happy hexies.

I found my hexie bag Fiona and i really like the fabrics that you have sewn your bag in

Carol said...

Gorgeous, every one. I especially like the embroidered blocks.

Hillbilly Handiworks said...

I made a few then quit. I might take them up again though as I have seen a couple of neat things done where they are not the 'whole' quilt. Much better.

Too much fun! I do love hexies. :)

Great to see all those hexies - I would have never noticed one in everyday life before. Good to see your Stitching Around The Block - mine is nearly done; I'm thinking of turing mine onto a cusion as one of my friends has done - it's a good size for it.
