Happy Valentine's Day and some hexie progress

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope everyone gets to spend time with their special someone today. I found this and it reminded me of my guy Mike.
(Love you babe- you're the best!)

I have been busy organizing fabrics this week. My four inch square bin was overflowing, so I made a quilt top to donate- I'll have pictures of that later. I did finish one more half hexie star- not my favorite colors, but they do coordinate and I think it will blend in well to the finished quilt.

Only two more half stars! Still have some green grass here in Florida even though it was thirty degrees this morning!

Here are all the parts I have so far. I am hoping to have enough to make a large queen sized quilt. Can you see the yard stick on the right half?  I may have to make more white hexies to go around the edges.

Its pretty hard to get a good picture- I had to cheat and use the tall ladder. I didn't step on the "not a step" part, but I did have to really stretch that cell phone to get the whole thing in one shot. Cell phone cameras are a great way to grab a quick shot so that you can remember where everything goes.

Have a nice weekend!


  1. Fantastic! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

  2. Sew incredibly beautiful! Such amazing piecing!

  3. I love the hexies, it will be awesome when it is finished.

  4. I really like your hexie stars, and the flowers, and the white in between. What size are each hexagon? They seem quite small to me (2" maybe?). You must have been working on this quilt for many months now. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    1. Thank you! Everyone has left such nice comments. The hexies are 1.5 inches per side- I use a Creative Memories punch. I have been working on it for almost three and a half years, but sometimes I may put it away for a few weeks and work on other stuff. Lately I have become addicted to economy blocks- check them out on Pinterest if you haven't seen them! Thanks again!

    2. Hexy quilts are long-time projects for me two. Two years ago, I started two hexy quilts for my two sons, using their old t-shirts. They are not finished yet... that's a lot of work!
      I like economy blocks too, even more when they have a picture in the middle. That's a great way to showcase a pattern we like. Do you have some to show us?


I appreciate your comments!
