Mo Hexies

All I’ve been able to accomplish lately is hand sewing hexies, the weather is still too nice to sit and sew in the basement, especially when I know that cooler weather is on it’s way and will be here for a long time. But still, I’m done with the sun beating down on me, I need relief.

Designer Hexies

I feel so decadent using designer fabrics for hexies like Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom, Tula Pink’s Pince Charming, Melissa Averinos’ now out of print Swoon and Amy Butler’s Soul Blossoms. I’d like to incorporate Cathedral Windows into this configuration for something off the beaten path.

When Joel Met Tula

Don’t they make a lovely couple? Their personalities blend and complement each other yet they keep their own identities. Delightful I think! I’m going to introduce them to a Sea Garden where they can dance amongst cranberry, cherry waves.

Hexies Gone Wild

I’ve started woking on my hexies again and I still don’t know what I’m going to make out of them. The nice part about hexies and hand sewing, is you can always remove a piece and replace it, it’s not a rush project, just something that I can take anywhere, especially on the train to and from work and never a waste of time.

German/Austrian Stylin’

Okay, okay, this is the last time I’m going to share my bed quilt plans and fabrics until I actually start working on them, probably after Xmas. Here’s what I mean about the German/Austrian style of bed, two duvets on a double, queen or king size bed so you never have to fight over the blankets again.

Euro Stylin

I did a bit of fabric editing, adding more Heirloom and removing Patricia Bravo, Modern Affair, Peacock Eye in Orange — the tone just wasn’t right, I also took out Joel Dewberry’s Flower Fields in Sunset as well as Bloom, Bark which could reappear in a pillow.

Final Fabric Selection

Now I wait for the rain and cooler weather so I don’t have to feel guilty when I’m in the basement sewing.
