MMSC III



Have 40 basted hexies  in my Monday Morning Star Count - week 3.  As usual, my quilts evolve as I work.  I like the way these look individually.  In fact,  I may not join them at all,  but rather applique them as I did my tumbling blocks.  All suggestions are most welcome.  I know that popular opinion has already approved M. Piggy.  Will keep basting...

  2. Here is a link to a wonderful hexie quilt, using hexies of all sizes. This might not be what you are after, but might inspire the creative juices. http://cabbagequilts.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/liberty-hexagon-mandala.html

    Also, google images Marg Sampson-George. She does amazing quilts using hexies.

    Just my 2 thoughts for the day!!

  4. I've just found your blog and have been enjoying all the pretty pictures! I love these indigo hexies- so Japanese looking. Do you have a connection to Japan? I hope to start an epp project and join in on the fun at Jessica's.

  6. These are looking great, and the possibilities are endless! A couple of times, I made some quilt tops by machine-appliqueing hexagons onto a background fabric. Sort of a scattered-hexagons look - lots of fun, and quicker than my usual quilt-top-construction methods.
