hexies!!

I've been so inspired lately by the wonderful hexies all my online friends have been creating!! Like here, here and here! I finally took the leap and gave them a try!! It was especially fun because my SIL, Tasha and I got to learn together!! While the kiddos played and the hubbies chatted there we were piecing away!! Since we both LOVE red and aqua and cutsie prints we also had fun pulling from each others stashes. :)

We used this fabulous tutorial and pattern from my sweet friend, Amy! Thanks for making it soo easy to learn Amy! Also, if you'd like to see some of the most amazing hexagons make sure to visit this group, and this group, of Heather and I's.

My first hexie stack!! Doesn't it look so yummy!!

I'm thinking of making a simple wall hanging and adding some embroidery! What would you do?

and a few more I added to the stack while at my sons hockey practice. Yippee, something new to keep my hands busy while out.


Hope you are having a fabulous day!

  14. They are just soooo cute!!! Love the little dress ones especially. Whatever you make with them is going to be wonderful. I'm supposed to be making a red and aqua quilt for my biggest girl. It's a lovely colour combination.

  23. Hello Kerry,

    These hexies are just perfect. I have never tried myself but I think I will. Could you tell me if you machine stitch the hexies together? Thanks a lot.
