Two Little Hexie Projects

Encouraging Words of the Day:

I just love working with hexies. I've got a couple of completed projects to show you today. This is a pincushion made entirely of hexagon shapes. You can't see the ones on the side that well in the photo, but those are hexagons as well. This was a really fast project.

This other project is kind of goofy looking. It's a little collapsible bowl. the rubberbands on the sides button up and hold the bowl together. It's funny looking so I'll probably never make another one since I have these two.

That is all.

Hexie Flowers and Charity Quilts

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Time flies but you already know that. It looks like it might finally be turning into spring in our part of Texas. Yes! We’ve been on the road as usual, but that gives me time to do some hand-sewing. I’ve made LOTS of little half-inch hexie flowers. I still don’t have anywhere near the 800 or so we figured I’d need to make a decent-sized quilt but my numbers are growing. Here are a few of them:

Also completed are a couple of little quilts for the "Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge" hosted by Sarah from "Confessions of a Fabric Addict." This year there are three charities to choose from:

Option #1 – Layers of Hope - Quilting 911’s mission is to enhance the lives of 911 Telecommunications Operators and their families during times of illness, disaster, loss and tragedy by inspiring hope, faith and optimism with a quilt of warmth and comfort in order to make a positive influence in the lives of those who make a difference everyday.


Option #2 - Happy Chemo. You can choose to make quilts for Happy Chemo, an organization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients.


Option #3 - Because You Matter. The purpose is to make and give a quilt to a person who is having a hard time and would be comforted by a handmade quilt to snuggle up in. The focus is on children in foster care.


I’ve completed two little quilts, one for "Happy Chemo" and the other for "Because You Matter."
