Blast from the past...




Magic Hexagons......After doing this quilt at Cottage on the Hill a few years ago we had a day at our group Club Quilt, also a few years back........ the hexagon is made by using a template, so very easy and quick....I have done each hexagon from a different fabric not repeating any and it was made from scraps.....lots of fun....have a great day...

Beautiful! So many hexagon projects going on right now I've noticed. I love them so but dislike the idea of handwork.

Wonderful quilt and it has given me such inspiration...can't wait to get started on one of my own.

I love your hexagon quilt. Was this one of the patterns where part was done on the machine or is it all hand stitched? I love hand work and keep buying those little packages of the hexagon paper pieces. Also really like your coin quilt. A great idea for all of those jelly rolls and honey buns we've bought.

Just gorgeous!! I started a quilt like this years ago, but didn't have the patience to finish it. (you must have a lot of patience and determination. Great job.

Hey, thanks, Peg! I see someone else was silly enough to go hexagon crazy, too! At least yours is finished and is gorgeous!

Ahhhhh....a true "charm" quilt! I bought a nice set of charm templates once, but never did make a charm quilt yet! This is gorgeous!

I remember this quilt - the pattern is waiting for me in the sewing room. Your quilt is really lovely. Was wondering where you got to - no post yesterday.

I love it! It is a great way of dealing with the ever growing heap of scraps.I am doing hexies as well. But so totally different. I joined TGHQA with Robyn when I started it.
