Half Hexie Fills in the Gap

Because of the light La Pass month, I have been working quite a bit on the Half Hexie Star. It is not as fun as La Pass, but I do want to get it done. I have put so much work into the piece that abandoning it is not an option. I looked at the … Continue reading “Half Hexie Fills in the Gap”

More Half Hexie Stars

Before I went to Portland last week, I finished a bunch of half hexie stars. I think La Pass is good for the other EPP project. These are pretty cheerful. The purple one in the upper right hand corner is a Tilda print I bought at Calico Creations in Mt Vernon last year. Don’t you … Continue reading “More Half Hexie Stars”

Half Hexie Progress for 2022

As I mentioned, I worked on the Half Hexie Star project while waiting for the next installment of La Pass. These stars are made from the new fabrics I bought on my birthday. I love that dark blue dot even more. I did notice that the papers feel significantly flimsier than the La Pass pieces. … Continue reading “Half Hexie Progress for 2022”

Half Hexies Again

I have been working steadily on the half hexie project while I watch TV after dinner. I am making progress, but it feels slow. I have started to make the piece wider by adding whole rows to the straight side of the piece. I can’t say whether I like this method, but it is controlled … Continue reading “Half Hexies Again”

Half Hexie EPP non-fatal Problem

The other day I showed you the latest results in my EPP piece. As I was taking the picture, I noticed a piece that looks a little odd. Dots. Dots are the problem. That violet with white dots fabric n the middle is weird looking. Something about the dots intersecting with the white is unconventional. … Continue reading “Half Hexie EPP non-fatal Problem”

Half Hexie EPP

The other day I showed a piece of the Half Hexie EPP I was working on. I have spent some time since then attaching it to the larger piece. I often think I am in a good place with this piece, then I look at the whole thing and realize I haven’t made the progress … Continue reading “Half Hexie EPP”

A Few More Half Hexie Stars

In between everything else I have going on, I have been working on the half hexie stars. I need about a million more stars, so I just work on them whenever I don’t have any other handwork pressing. I especially need white background stars so I have been concentrating on those fabrics lately. One problem … Continue reading “A Few More Half Hexie Stars”

Interesting Half Hexie Progress

I’d love to say this piece was in the finishing process, but it is so far from the finishing process that lying wouldn’t even cover what I was doing. I am, however, working on this piece. It is slow going, which is fine when I don’t have other handwork that I must do. Recently, I … Continue reading “Interesting Half Hexie Progress”

Half Hexie Progress

My half hexie EPP project has been languishing while I knit and sew on bindings, and do other handwork. It seems that I last posted about this project in July of 2017. I can’t believe I haven’t worked on it since then. I have been looking for the diamond papers I know I have that … Continue reading “Half Hexie Progress”

A Few More Hexie Stars

I have been working on the half hexie stars a tiny amount. They take a long time, as I have said. I finally was able to cut some more backgrounds, so I have been focusing on making background stars. I’ll have to see when I can add more stars to the larger piece. Making the … Continue reading “A Few More Hexie Stars”

Hexies on the Mind

Gerre talked a bit about putting the Merit Hexies together in a project at the last meeting. This discussion was swirling around in my mind when I went looking through my media library (where all the photos I have posted to the blog live). Yes, I posted this photo back in February 2014, but with … Continue reading “Hexies on the Mind”

Top Complete: Attack of the Hexies

Yes, yesterday I finished the last details I needed to do to prepare the top for quilting. The tasks required were: Finish back Make binding Trim top Stay stitch Saturday was a busy day, because I attended the CQFA meeting. I stayed after the meeting to sew with Sonja, Angela and Rhonda. It is good … Continue reading “Top Complete: Attack of the Hexies”

Hexies Return

The last time I seemed to have written about this Flower Sugar Hexagon project was way back in 2011. I didn’t think that much time had flown by, but Pam has made two hexagons, so I guess it has. My design walls have been empty for several weeks while I work on small projects; the … Continue reading “Hexies Return”
