Be A Hexie Queen blog hop Day 5~My Day


Welcome to day 5.
I am so excited to share with you what I have been working so hard on.

This little beauty below is made entirely of 1/2 inch hexies. I LOVE it. I can not tell you how much I love it. As soon as I saw what the next blog hop was going to be about I new this is what I wanted to make. It has 127 hexies in it. All have basted and stitched. It took me FOREVER to get them all done. This is how far I got before I knew I was running out of time. I am going to continue to add hexies for another 7 rings. I want to add one ring for each of the 7 rainbow colors. I have the fabric pieces all ready cut and waiting to be basted. When all of them are done I will have added another 420 for a total of 547 hexies. I can't wait to be done with it.

Then just for fun I made this. I made 61 black 1 inch hexies. Then I made 14, two of each color, 1/2 inch hexie flowers with black centers. THEN I made 14, one of each color, 1/4 inch hexies to add to the centers of each flower. For a total of 173 hexies of various sizes.

So for this blog hop I made a total of 300 hexies. I think I am a little crazy for hexies. But having said that I am done for a while, LOL! Don't forget to go check out all of the other blogs on this hop. Below is the list for today. Have fun hoping!!

  35. I can see how you might run out of time with allllllll those itty bitty pieces. You are indeed a queen of hexies with all this traditional type piecing, I am guessing. EPP? Both pieces are gorgeous but wowie, is that pastels on black striking. Congrats on top 2.

  36. I can see why you love that little rainbow hexie at the top of your post. I LOVE IT, TOO! Just the sweetest little thing. Will you give it a hug for me? And the hexies on black? Stunning. Loved everything today. Thanks for showing us your creativity!

  40. Wow! What amazing projects! Top 2 finish is well deserved. I can see what you ran out of pizzaz to finish the rainbow one. It is absolutely amazing. I am a counter and haven't even begun to start to count the hexies in my project for my Grandmother's Flower Garden - it's too scary at this point to think about it. The hexies finish at 1" and I am piecing them by hand using traditional hand piecing methods. Thanks for sharing your amazing projects and participating.
