Hexie Flowers Sprouting

I'm really looking forward to getting started on Karen's quilt along and I'm clearing the way.
I find Hexie Flowers very relaxing to do!

And you can see I've got a bunch to put into something funky.

I will wait for Karen's quilt along, so I can have a little help along the way.

This is  what started to form a few months ago. Random scrappy chunks of fabric that called to me.

That is a poor photo on a rainy day. I continued. When time allowed, I took out my hexie bling bag, which simply is a "Very Bling Bag" that became my portable carrier for hexie supplies. I fit right in at any function in Victoria. 

I'm working on workshops for guilds to promote myself as an instructor. 

This what I played with today!

I was taken with the sense of freedom I felt as I laid these blocks onto what was a slight pink print background.

Wild abandon comes to my mind. Something like getting wiser?
But I couldn't resist flinging open my fabric cupboards and found this IKEA brand new bed sheet in orangey red color.


Have fun folks!

Sewing slowly is very rewarding.

  2. Hi Caroline! thanks for stopping by not afraid of color
    here's my answer to your question: I lay out my hexie plan before a trip, and safety pin them where they will go, so that I can easily sew them while on the go!

  3. HI Caroline, thanks for linking up with PYT - I love your hexies & wow that background sheet is just great for your work! Thanks for helping to spread the word about PYT!
