Quick and Easy Hexie Quilt Blog Hop and Giveaway

Today is my day on the Quick and Easy Hexie Quilt blog hop.  Julia Wood contacted me a while ago asking me if I was interested in participating.  Of course I was interested.  I love hexies and finding a new way to make them was fascinating.  I couldn’t imagine what could be new.  I know some people piece hexagons without using papers but until I saw the book and method, I couldn’t imagine me doing it.

Julia sent some precut circles and even a needle and thread so I read the basics and went to work.

They aren’t sewn together but don’t they look great?  Here is another photo with a couple of them turned over.

It is a quick and easy method.  The hardest part of it is cutting the circles and I can see how valuable a die cut machine would be in cutting lots and lots of circles.  Maybe this is the reason to finally buy one!

Here is the cover of the book.

I love the quilt on the cover and you need to get the book so you can see all the wonderful projects inside, especially Mickey Blue Eyes.

I have a signed copy of the book to give to one person who comments on this post.  In your comment, let me know if you have a completed hexie project, are working on one or just want the book.  No wrong or right answer – I am just nosy.  The drawing will be held at the end of the day on June 10th.

Julia has two blogs.  Her personal one is Green Quilts and she also has The Hexie Blog.  I suggest you follow both.

Here is the schedule for the blog hop.

  4. I love hexies and have a few projects started. I'm sewing up a wall hanging made of hexies surrounding our little ranch house, I'm making a hexies quilt made up of 1/2-inch hexies (this should take a life-time to complete), I have another wall-hanging I'm working on a circular flower ball, I make hexies for swaps, I have a hexathon quilt going etc.... I'd love to own this book because it sounds like it's full of ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Have a great day Frederika

  14. Would love to win this book and of course a cutter. I have been planning on attempting the cutting on my Bernina with the cutting tool but haven't had a chance. This looks better than all those paper pieces or plastic templates, etc. Thanks for a chance.

  20. I'm working on an EPP project, but Texas Star, not hexies - would love to win the book and find out another way for doing them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. A few years ago, I bought a big box of fabric at a garage sale. There was all kinds of fabric, quilt panels, pillow panels, and even a couple of unfinished quilt tops. One of them was a Grandmothers Garden, it was so ugly and so poorly done, I didn't know what to do with it. I took it apart and started remaking the hexies. I'm adding a white path and also a purple print path to the flowers. I know it's not the traditional path, but it is mine, whenever I get done with it. It is a FOREVER project. Also, I would love to be in the drawing for this book.

  26. Both of the ladies are friends of mine & taught me to do hexies using this method. It is a great way to make hexies. This is a great "take-along" project.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have never done a hexie project; however, a few women in my have displayed some of their's. I've seen a demo on how to make them with templates but that seems like alot of work. So, I would like to give this new, simpler method a try. Take along, hand piecing projects are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Melinda I would LOVE to win this book!!! All my friends are hexie fanatics, and there are a couple of hexie quilts that I would like to make too, but I just don't have time to fuss with all that prep work! This method might just be what could pull me into the hexie revolution :*)

  36. I've only recently become a victim of hexie fever. I recently completed a tea cozy made from hexies and star-flowers and am now appliquéing some 8-petal little daisies which were english paper pieced onto some setting triangles for a lone star medallion-style quilt. I'm intrigued by the authors' method and would love to win a copy of the book to support my new addiction :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi! I haven't worked with hexies, yet, but I think they are absolutely adorable! I think winning this book would be a good introduction and lesson! Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The idea of spending time removing paper or popping plastic templates from hexagons has kept me from pursuing such projects (it's also why I don't paper-piece). But the method in this book seems worth exploring.

    ReplyDelete
  41. i'm following this blog hop with interest, so curious about this technique. i have a small hexie project on the go and a bom(skillbuilders) and was just sitting down to sew some together, does that satisfy your nosiness lolol

  48. I don't have any finished hexie projects. I have been putting off trying them. I made about 4 of them and sewed them together but wasn't too happy with the project. This looks like it would be much nicer,not having to get the papers out.

    ReplyDelete

I have one that I started 4 years ago with my mom the traditional way and then about a year ago I started play with circles and made some hexies from them. I would love the book to see how they actually do them. If I don't win, I know that this book will be on my wishlist. Thanks for this blog tour.

My one almost completed hexie project is an extremely small EPP hexie flower -- otherwise I have the huge project of making a Grandmothers Flower Garden style quilt for which I have no pattern or directions.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am fascinated by the idea of making hexies from circles. The very first thing I did in patchwork was a hexie pillow with the help of my aunt at the age of 8. Since then I have paper pieced hexies and joined them, given them away and made them into all sorts of little projects. I always have a pile of hexies waiting to be joined together - it is my go-to project to take with me. I love hexies!!

    ReplyDelete

  96. I just decided last week to try hexies. I ordered some fusible papers and am awaiting their arrival. I'm excited to start! I don't have a due cutter so I doubt I'll be doing the circle method anytime soon, but I'm fascinated by the photos of the quilts I've seen so far in the book! I've not been attracted to hand work until I found myself the unfortunate recipient of A LOT of travel time as a passenger...so, I want the book because I'd live to have a hard copy reference! I'm excited to begin!

  158. I've got an I Spy hexi quilt in the works as my grab-and-go project. I'm fascinated by all the new techniques for this ancient block. I'm the guild's librarian so books always catch my attention, especially books that teach technique instead of just a pattern.

  162. I made a hexie project many years ago, and back then, I didn't even know it was a hexie. I just thought it was a funny and diffcult shape! I still use this little lined linen bag with the yellow and brown hexie on the front to hold the tools for my spinning wheels, although it is on a different wheel now. I really want this book so that I can see all the projects in it. The ones I have seen already have whetted my appetite!

  187. I would love to win this book and learn a new way to make hexies.
    I have a long term project that I am doing using hexies that are done by stamping the fabric with the hexagon shape and layering the batting, and front and back fabrics then machine sewing around them, flipping them and hand stitching the finished hexies together. Another is done using cut out hexies with lines drawn and hand stitching the pieces together, it is a single block for a sampler quilt and I am putting the rows together.
    I think this way looks so much simpler and would love to try it.

  188. I sooooooooo want to share this with my Moma Lynette whose coming at the end of the month. She is taking their first vacation across the states with my newly retired Dad. This would give her something to do and escape my Dad. LOL
