Description

I've recently become a member of a Bee Quilt group on the French website http://crazybroderies.canalblog.com/
We're making hexagons in our own sweet time, to be finished in a quilt, either as you go along or when you've finished all you hexies.
I can tell you, this is addictif ! Every time you have done a hexie it's a mini-finish and every time you see other people's hexies you get inspired to do another one...

15/06/2013: finished hexagon 5 (little hexies forming a star), hexagon 6 (Celtic knot) and hexagon 7 (love that saying) !

17/07/2013: after one month without hexies, here's hexagon 8 (fussy cut from a hanky) and 9 (vintage peacock) and finally 10 (star window)

12/08/2013: hexagone 11 - my initials in a fairy alphabet (cross stitch and blackwork)

13/08/2013: hexagone 12: chicken scratch tulip on very small gingham and hexagon 13: chicken scratch heart surrounded by flowers

20/08/2013: hexagon 14: appliquee following a block by Pat Sloan, hexagon 15 & 16: a horse and a wave in Sashiko embroidery (for more info see my blog)

1/09/2013: during my holidays I finished hexagon 17: a Dutch girl appliquee of course !

12/01/2014: hexagon 18 with blackwork hexagons !

20/05/2014: hexagon 19 according to the challenge proposed by Crazypatch

21/05/2014: hexagon 20 embroidered butterfly and hexagon 21 grandma's flower garden (0,75 inch hexies)

24/05/2014: hexagon 22 a embroidered wreath with lots of summer fruit

These are beautiful. I LOVE the rooster! You did an amazing job on the stitch work. Great Job!

brodeusebressane

Skynme Thank you ! :-)

Charwirfs

Love the embroidery. Makes me want to bring out the "floss" and stitch up some hexies. Hexie 3 is my fav.

brodeusebressane

Charwirfs Thank you ! If you search "Bee Quilt" on Pinterest or even Google, you'll see some wonderful hexies made by others and many of them are either embroidery or crazy quilt.

Charwirfs

Thanks! I will take a look.

Mrsquilt

HawkFan

you do such beautiful work

brodeusebressane

HawkFan Thanks !!

Nexxus831

lovely work, can I ask what size are your hexi's?

Mouseinmypocket

Super adorable! To get the borders on these did you simply bind them individually?

brodeusebressane

Nexxus831 Nexxus831 At their shortest point they are 15 cm across (inner hexie 13 cm)

brodeusebressane

Mouseinmypocket they are bound by the fabric from the back; so the back is 19 cm acrooss; then you fold it twice over the inner hexie... I hope this is clear ?!

Mouseinmypocket

brodeusebressane yes it does! Thanks!

Nexxus831

oh nice very nice

Whatthebobbin

The bee embroidery is so sweet. Love all the little fruit, its so detailed.

brodeusebressane

Skynme Thank you ! The design is from theflossbox.com; it's one of their freebies.

MrsMinerich

Beautiful!!

Posyp

Beautiful work, and a wonderful way of doing a quilt-as-you-go style that also feels finished when ever you finish another little bit. Brilliant idea :)

brodeusebressane

Posyp MrsMinerich Thank you both ! And it's true, every time I finish a hexie it's a little finish, but when I attach it too the others, it's another finish. Very stimulating !
