I think my favorite shape in quilting must be the hexagon. I know, having a favorite shape is a bit odd, but there you have it. I fit the profile! I thought it might be fun to look back at some of the hexie quilts I have made over the years. I have made so many that I am going to break this up into two posts. Today I am sharing some of the small quilts I have made with hexies.
The hexies in this first one are a mere 1/2 inch across.
These are a bit bigger at one inch. This was hand quilted every 3/8 inch. These fabrics were from the very first Smithsonian collection. Remember that?
Back to the teeny tiny half inchers, this time in vintage fabrics.
This one also has tiny hexies, I copied the center of an antique quilt I used to own.
Liberty of London hexies!
Okay, these are honeycombs, but technically, they are still hexies!
I know this one is old because I hand pieced it when Daughter #2 was in dance class. She was 4 or 5 at the time.
This one appeared in Quilt Almanac in the late 1990s.
Okay, not a quilt, but a pincushion I made from a quilt shop giveaway kit.
Machine pieced sometime in the last year!
A mug rug.
Whew! That’s a bunch of littles! Next time I will share come of my bigger hexie finishes.
Have a great day!
