How do YOU quilt your hexies?

I know most traditional hexie quilts are hand quilted. I've quilted mine using free-motion-quilting with my domestic machine and I've also used French Knots too.  I've just finished a top and am…Continue

I saw a tutorial about making Hexies and making a bag to put your hexie pieces in, Loved it, and have started sitting in my chair in the evenings and making HEXIES!  <3Continue

Hello fellow hexie lovers!!  I'm so excited to find a group here where I feel like I belong. I'm a total hexie addict!  

I joined the Portland Modern Quilt Guild in 2010 and at my first meeting they had a tutorial on how to make hexies... I immediately thought "this is it"!  I'm a graphic designer, and this reminded me of pixel type imagery we use on the computer everyday and I realized I could make that happen with fabric. It was a real eye-opener for me. 

I've completed 2 hexie quilts and am currently working on a third - the Jellyfish. I just finished the top and am starting to consider how to quilt it. 

Thankful for new friends who like these little things as much as I do!

These flowers were made from scraps to decorate our refurbished bedroom.

I'm so glad you joined us Beth.
I look forward to 2015 because, like you, I have some other things to finish before I can concentrate on a big project.

I made this little guy with the ruler, it was from a Quiltmakers magazine, June 2014.  You can purchase it off the internet.  It is the just the cutest and then the flowers are origami hexies as well.

Hello, my name is Beth and I am a hexie lover.  I became addicted to hexies when Creative Girds came out with their Hexie Ruler.  I have been making so many things.  Next project for next year, after I finish up a few things this year, will be a Hexi Scrap quilt.  I do not do the little paper hexies, no patience for that, but love using the ruler, cutting them out that way and making them larger.  I believe with all my scraps, this would be a fantastic quilt.
