2014 Hexie BOM: August!

We're letting the SUN shine in this month! This in our hottest month of the year - and the humidity where we live is through the roof. When you walk outside, it's like you're walking into a sauna. So we're celebrating the sun this month!

Are you caught up? Enjoy a bit of sun today while you stitch! Happy Hexies...


  1. love the sun, might be a problem as I have very little yellow so might go mad and have a muiti coloured one.

  2. I was trying to guess what you would do this month and the sun was on my short list of August means in Houston, TX!! And I have lots, and lots of yellow and orange - love those colors! I'm excited to get started! Thanks!

  3. My guess was pretty close - sunflower! Sun is good. Can't wait to get started.

  4. Another gorgeous block perfect for August. I invite you to link to Hexie Weekend. We love hexies!

  5. Working on my 2 suns - 1/2" batiks and 1" 30's repro fabric. I'm ready to start picking backing and figuring out sashing and possible borders. Have 2 questions....Julia or other bloggers - I would like to put hexies into the sashing on the 1" quilt and was wondering if someone had any ideas for that. I will probably use the hst idea (half square triangles) for the smaller batik "table topper" sashing. Also was wondering - Julia - what size you would make the backing and sashings for that one as is not a factor of '5' one. I could 1/2 everything (finished size) and add the 1/4" for seams, but afraid that may not be large enough - esp. for background. Do you have any suggestions there? THANKS! Nancy

  6. the sun has got his hat on, hip hip hooray!!!
    very apt too here in the UK, we have had several days of very hot weather ! not guaranteed in summer here that! lol
