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.
Here is the schedule for the blog hop.
