whipstitched hexies

More Hexies!

Since I finished the Jellyfish Hexie Quilt, I’ve been making hexies out of random scraps of fabric that have been given to me by a few PMQG members (Thanks Sam, MaryAnn, and Cris!) So I have piles of crazy-colored hexies to play with.

I came up with a layout for a medallion for a larger quilt, and I’m stitching it together! Hexie Medallion in Process:

This is the first project that I’m using Kimono Silk 100# thread (thanks to Rachel!) to stitch them together with, and I am loving the results! From the front you cannot see any stitches, and even on the back, the thread is so fine, it looks really clean:

These are 1/2″ hexies. The size I used on the Jellyfish and the Dragon. It’s my favorite size because they are so easy to handle while sewing. No need to baste through the paper with smaller pieces like this either.

I also have a quilt finish to share… it is for the Game of Quilts Challenge, so I’m not posting pictures yet, but I’m very happy with my project, and can’t wait to share! For now, I’ll continue working on these hexies – I love having a go-to project like this.

    So Gail, when is the big reveal for your Game of Quilts Challenge? Can you show us just a smidge?

    September 4th is opening day of the online submissions for the challenge… so there is still a bit of time. Since the quilt is only 18" square, it's hard to show just a bit, but I'll try to get a good photo for my next post 🙂

    Lovely Hexie project. I'm visiting before we are doing hexie mug rug with All Points Patchwork.
    Good Earth Quilting.

    Thanks Caroline! I'll be posting more about this project later this month, with a tutorial of how I put it all together.
