Cheryl Arkison March 24, 2010 at 9:33 am | Reply There is too much hex tempataion lately. You’re killing me. Emily March 24, 2010 at 9:45 am | Reply oh my gosh!!!! i LOVE THiS idea of how you are using the hexes! love it! Deborah March 24, 2010 at 9:53 am | Reply I am in love with these cute hexes – they look like flowers!! I follow your blog but would love some more information on them. Are you doing them by hand or on the machine and where did you get the pattern? They are beautiful! Deborah Alissa March 24, 2010 at 9:58 am | Reply Hi Deborah! This is all done by hand. Both basting the hexes around the paper and then sewing the hexes together. Slow going but just something I work on in the evenings when I watch a bit of t.v.! No pattern but if you Google “paper piecing hexagons” you’ll find all the info you need! Ruth March 24, 2010 at 10:04 am | Reply Love them!!! Audrie March 24, 2010 at 10:05 am | Reply They look so great!! One day I’ll get into hexes but I know I’ll be obsessed so I’m saving them for a long trip when I don’t have my sewing machine hehe amanda March 24, 2010 at 10:21 am | Reply Incredibly gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what becomes of them! Live a Colorful Life March 24, 2010 at 10:52 am | Reply Love the solid colors with the fun center. I might give my civil war reproduction print hexes away to a good home….and start over with fun solids and happy prints. Meg March 24, 2010 at 12:09 pm | Reply This is such a cool riff off the old Grandmother’s Flowergarden hex quilt. Love it! izzy inspired March 24, 2010 at 12:18 pm | Reply what luscious colors…they make my mouth water! i can’t wait to see them all put together!! what a great idea for a baby quilt, and all those colors will be so stimulating to his/her little eyes.

I took an English Paper Piecing class this past Saturday and now I’m hooked. I love the handsewing, especially while watching TV. It’s a nice alternative to breaking out the sewing machine (since I don’t have a dedicated sewing room — yet). nanette March 25, 2010 at 8:06 am | Reply I was just flicking through blogs today determined not to comment much so I could get on with things but I had to stop here because your pic is so cute. I love the staging and the colors. This is lovely. Or going to be something lovely. KT March 25, 2010 at 2:10 pm | Reply Ooh, I’m totally loving these! I’m a total sucker for anything rainbow-y and can’t wait to see how it comes together. jacquie March 25, 2010 at 6:10 pm | Reply love the centers…i can hardly believe you’re doing this all by hand…amazing! erica March 26, 2010 at 9:34 am | Reply Oh my word! These are adorable, great idea! I am working on some hexes in hope valley and I am already thinking baby quilt, ha. maman March 26, 2010 at 11:05 am | Reply Oh! I hate those! (just wanted to be different) Jessica C March 27, 2010 at 6:11 am | Reply Um, wow. My hands hurt to see how much you have done. Gonna be beautiful, though. Deborah March 27, 2010 at 1:27 pm | Reply Alissa, thanks again for your information. I have the hexes and have started putting them together. Where and how is the backing done – one flower at a time?? Thanks for your help – Deborah Deborah April 8, 2010 at 6:03 am | Reply Alissa thanks os much for the info on the hexagons!! I am so enjoying doing them and feel like I’m getting the hang of it, some trial and error!! I did figure out how to do the backing – sorry – don’t know what I was thinking as I have done several quilts before, brain fog I suppose. Anyway I posted some pictures on the ones I have completed on my blog last night. Would love to share with you and again A BIG THANKS!!
