Now that my new programme of classes is out, I can finally tell you about all the stuff I’ve been working on.

Today I’ll show you my hexie quilts.

Finished size 56″ x 60″

You may remember seeing this one during construction.

I used the Missouri Star Quilting company half hexie ruler and chopped up a whole layer cake (Kate Spain – Sunnyside).

This was quilt no.2 using this ruler (you can see no.1 here).  I used a donated vintage sheet on the back, which goes perfectly with the soft sunny tones of the fabrics on the front.

This is a really simple quilt to make.  So for those who like a little more of a challenge in their quilts, I present the hexie stars quilt.

Still using the half hexie ruler, but this time the layer cake squares (Noteworthy, Sweetwater) are kept whole, with navy triangles added to the corners to create a starry secondary pattern.

Both of these quilts could be easily enlarged with the addition of borders.

Hexies of all shapes and sizes are a particular favourite of mine, and lend themselves to lots of fun quilting designs.  I hope you like them too!
