Great hexies! Will be fun to see what you come up with for each month...
Love the fabrics-cute!!!
What a great hexie heart! I just love red and white together!
Terryt1955 Thanks- it is a nice mix! Now I'm feeling the need to make something red and white for Valentine's!
How cute! I have never seen hexagons like this and it is great.
Janquilter Thanks-the design is Stacey's and she did a great job-very fun to make- it will be fun to see what everyone comes up with each month!
That is a really lovely block, Mymble.
You are so clever!!! A great design!
Terryt1955 Thanks- it was a fun challenge and I love the fabrics she chose so they were very fun to work with.
Love the fabric and love your creativity!! Another great block.
Great design! Sounds like a fun group to be a parrt of. Love that scooter!
Sewzalot Thanks- yes, I was a bit hesitant at first- since it feels like a huge responsibility to get an envelope of someone else's fabrics to make a block for them and I don't want to disappoint but- hexies are so fun and everyone is very easy going.
Yes- the scooters are sooo cute- it's called the Havana Collection- it's an organic cotton I believe.
Great hexies! What do you think of the pieced hexies?
TxQltr Thanks Had to look up what pieced hexies were- really interesting- will definitely want to give them a try!
I love that ocean one with the turtles! I bet it will look amazing once complete
Your butterfly is stunning
My first look at your hexies projects here. Lovely! Very clever use of the hexies. I am curious about "scooters". Is that the name for that shape? I've never heard it before.
Quilterinmotion Thanks! The scooters were fussy cut from the fabric ( Havanna by Monaluna) and she asked us to place them either lower right corner ( if they were headed to the left) or upper left corner ( if they were headed right)- then we could do whatever we liked with the rest of the fabric she provided:)- that month was a fun challenge.
Capetowngirl Thanks- the "queen" for the month chose the fabric- it was a cute design and easy to make so I may make some more from my stash if time allows:)
Mymble , did she call those shapes scooters or is that shape known everywhere as "scooters"? I'm definitely learning something new with this!
Quilterinmotion Well...the scooters are also called mopeds in some places and I don't know enough about makes to know if the ones on this fabric are meant to be Vespas or not- (my daughter wants a Vespa but I am nervous about them being dangerous) but anyway Mara- the designer of that block referred to them as "scooters" - she lives in Greece:)))
Cute hexie projects!! I see them on so many blogs and want to try but I hate doing hand sewing.
gale I hear you...A long project with hexies can do in my fingers...this is one time i always use a thimble...but you can do hexies by machine...larger ones especially...forget which but one of the current quilt mags covers how to...and there's probably a tutorial online for machine hexies too...there's a tutorial for everything:)
Mymble I know what you mean about scooters being dangerous. A young girl of 16 was killed over here by a large car that then fled the scene. Thankfully they tracked him down. There is no way my daughter wll be allowed one.
Capetowngirl Well there you go- that does it for me- I think that as vehicles they probably are no worse than any other moped- the problem as I see it is that people don't know how to drive with them on the road or the scooter drivers themselves take unwarranted risks- we have the same problem with cyclists here in Baltimore and have had several fatalities.
Mymble our biggest problem here I think is drivers contempt for cyclist, motor bikes etc. Big problem.
Yes- exactly- some places do it better than others but it's never an easy co-existence I think!
Oh, silly me! I was looking at the various shapes in the block and didn't even notice the Scooter/Vespa!!! You can laugh at me; it's okay. Now I know what you are referring to and yes, I think that would qualify as a Vespa. Thanks for the indulgence here.
Quilterinmotion LAWY (laughing along with you) - well I couldn't be sure what you were looking at so I assumed you meant the Vespas- funny:) - hey maybe we can start a new trend- we can call hexies floating free on a block....scooters...yay ( now let's see how long that takes to catch on- you and I know we said it first!!!!!)
Mymble , thanks for not making me feel to stupid!!! I hadn't seen LAWY before but like it. Scooters...my not??? You saw it here first, ladies!!!
Quilterinmotion ...I made LAWY up- when I responded to you...but of course that doesn't mean a thing with regards to the web...somewhere out there someone else has probably already said it- originality is very hard to come by these days- but at least its mine for now, and scooters- that's definitely ours:)))))
These are incredible blocks...this is going to be an amazing quilt
Didn't they all do a great job? I had a stash bag of organic scraps so this was the perfect project for them:)
Love all your hexxie blocks - especially the scrappy ones! Your group really did a terrific job : )
I love everything scrappy and hexie!
cally68 I miss so much stuff I don't know what I've missed...hmm..that is about as coherent as a mumbling cat...but you get the idea;).
Love the large pink and green flowers
I love the purples.
Yes...it was nice fabric to work with...she brought it from Hawaii and everyone in the group got a different hawaiian print.
