Hexi Hopping


No, I am not striving for the Hexie Queen crown,
though I couldn't resist creating my own ...
too fun not to ...
but I was pretty darned happy to jump into this hop with 
both feet ... so please let me share with you today,
my hexagon creations ...

First up are my pink and grey pillows:


Gradient grey batiks with a pink batik above ...
and
a bit of Sunkissed pink and white to 
go with a grey solid below ...

Two individual pillows ... alike and yet so different.
Just like two little girls I know and love so dearly ...

The pink and white pillow is now with my friendly LQS owner
as a shop sample, so may have to make another real soon,
and with this ruler and Jaybird's pattern, making another 
will be simple and quick .... 
Jaybird's Hex N More Ruler
and Jaybird's Candy Dish Pattern

Though I may get sidetracked, as I discovered this pattern 
first and really like it's look for the top of the table ...
Yep, even bought Atkinson Designs' Merry-Go-Round pattern ... 
ran outta  time for completing for this hop.
just had a thought! ... 
wouldn't this be adorable
in wicked Halloween prints
 ... um maybe for another
wicked hop??? 
{cackle cackle}  ... 
hmmmm ...
ooops ...back to the hexies ...

I did attempt the traditional hexagons,
In fact, I found myself stitching these poolside, 
during birthday parties at the park and even
the symphony in the park ... yep ... 
I believe I'm hexed! ... no wait ... hooked!
{grin}

So, I share with you these, which I made using 1" mylar 
hexagons I got from The Scrappy Appleyard, I started this:

Not completed ... just started ... I find myself making more and
more hexies which will find themselves attached to this pretty
topper ... see, no pattern, just my own creative need to put
hexies together.  I'm using a charm pack of Sandy Gervais' ...
it'll be pretty when completed ... at least I think so.

I did get the center and the cream row stitched together,
however, while I got the hexi's made, I've yet to stitch them
all together.  The two colors the hexies are laying on will
become the outside borders and I plan to create a very
pretty table topper out of these... promise to post
when it is finished!

Thank you for visiting with me during yet another
fine hop put together with the machinations of our
very dear Madame Samm with the assistance of
Cheerleader Debby of Debby Kratovil Quilts ...

Well done ladies!!

Please be sure to hop along to my fellow hexie
creators today ... certain inspiration to be had!

  37. A great finish to our second day on this hop!! I love your pillows. They are great and how wonderful to have your work in the LQS. I'm having double vision and my eyes kept having trouble deciding which pattern to settle on as I was looking at them. They are amazing. I love the table mat - I want that pattern now. Your hexie piecing is a great start and it will be wonderful when you are finished. Thanks for participating and sharing all your wonderful creativity.

  49. Your pillows are so lovely! Fresh, modern, good contrast in the fabrics (something I like to see). And I absolutely love your collection of hexies taking form in your second project. It will be awesome once you get those last rows done. I am in the midst of the same sort of project with scraps and pieces. I love the random placement of the fabrics. Thanks for sharing today.
