Welcome to The Hexie Blog!

You heard it here first!  Our upcoming book (to be published by the American Quilter's Society) is all about the wonderful hexagon.  We prefer to call them hexies.  We LOVE hexes!  We love them little, big, solid or print, modern and traditional!  We are obsessed with hexies!  And we know many of you are, too!

Who are we?  Dr. Peggy G. Rhodes (standing) and Julia C. Wood (most people call me Judy).  We met in our local quilt guild - the Birmingham Quilters Guild.  I (Julia/Judy) will be handling this blog, though I'm sure Peggy will be dropping in here and there.  

We decided to team up for this book last year; we've had a blast designing and making hexie quilts, most of them with a modern twist.

We make our hexies differently than most quilters; but we are not allowed to share our technique until the book comes out.  Stay tuned!  I know you'll find it to be the fastest and easiest way to make hexies that you've ever tried!

We continue to be amazed at all the fun designs that can be made with hexies.  Have you made a hexie quilt?  We'd love to share it here!  Send us an e-mail with a picture and some info about your quilt.  Did you design it yourself?  We want to hear all about it!  

We want this to be your go-to site for hexie inspiration! 

Sending us a picture automatically gives us permission to publish it here on the blog, so please don't send a picture of someone else's quilt.

Won't it be fun to have a show and tell "Hexie" style?  Let's get started! If you have a hexie quilt to share, e-mail us!
