Basket Inspiration


I hope you don't mind, Melinda! I'm stealing borrowing a photo from your blog! Melinda has  Hexie Club at the quilt shop where she teaches. The group is all doing the block of the month with us. One of the members added flowers cascading from her basket. How creative! Are you putting something in your basket? Or leaving it empty like mine?

See more quilty goodness at Melinda's blog!

By the way, the hexies in this basket are TEENY TINY!

Put a HEXIE on it!


That's my new mantra: Put a HEXIE on it! I made a denim quilt for my hubby birthday and that's where this hexie landed.

Go to my other blog to see the details.

I've loved hearing where you all live! So many counties: Norway, UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Spain - it goes on and on!

And so many states, too - all over the USA! I wish we all could have a great big HEXIE meet up somewhere - wouldn't that be great fun?

Let's Take a Poll - Where Are YOU?


Here's a cute little hexie flower I made yesterday... just because! I can't sit still without making hexies!

I am in the USA making my hexies and designing hexie quilts. I know many of you who are making the 2014 Hexie Block of the Month quilt are in other countries. Let's see how many counties we represent!

Please leave a comment telling me the country where you live!!! Can't wait to hear from you all!

The HEXIE BOM: April!

A Tisket, A Tasket...




A lovely hexie basket!  You can think of this as an Easter basket or a flower basket.... or maybe a basket to fill with fabric or hexies! It takes 31 hexies to make this one. Have fun with it!

Show and Share: Strings of Beads!


Strings of Beads is one of the quilts in Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts. I was inspired by a box of Kleenex - yes, inspiration can come from ANYWHERE! I stepped out of my box color-wise on this - I would never put these colors together. But they played well together on the tissue box, so I gave it a go with great success.

This quilt is one of those fast and easy ones - and depending on the fabric and colors, would be great for men, too.

Are you counting down with me? A new block of the month pattern coming up tomorrow!

Another GFG!


Doesn't this remind you of the vintage quilt I shared last week? NitaDances sent this to me - love the fresh Spring colors! Go read more about it at her blog! You also need to check out the drool-worthy antique sewing cabinet that was passed down in her family. Thanks so much for sharing, Nita!
