Hexagons

As my househelp asked for a cloth for dusting, I quickly conjured up a dusting cloth by hand stitching bright hexies into a fat quarter and side stitching the fabric :)
Love the brightness and contrast of colours.

Next, I tried out a back pattern at it turned out just perfect with some machine embroidery in the handles.!

And then, a quilted laptop sleeve from a christmas-y fabric that my friend Shahnaz gifted me :)

Quite a productive week I must say !

I love the colours in the mug rug/hot pad(am yet to decide if its a mug rug or a hot pad). The yellow, I think, looks lovely in the afternoon sun and the hexagon flower is one from my collection that would have made it to the grandmother’s flower garden quilt.

I quilted the background first, with batting and backing…a new technique for me and am glad the lines turned out all parallel to each other. The flower was the last to get added, completing it with a white border…wanted the border to be subtle so the flower would stand out, not the border !

This makes me feel how the simple paper pieced hexagon flower can be so versatile. So am back to my paper piecing of white hexagons to complete the grandmother’s flower garden quilt. It required almost 600 white hexies and I am around 100 at present.

My ever growing stack of hexies has reached 70

with the addition of last week’s 7.

The big plan is to make 30 more flowers in the last 30 days of the year. A round figure of 100 would be good to start making the borders :)

I am slowly getting obsessed by the hexies.

Slowly inching towards the flowers in the grandmother’s flower garden …

Lovely kitchen towels with triple hexagons in contrasting colours. Although the sides are not stitched yet, I wish to complete them at the earliest and send them as gifts to family members.

Owing to the beginning of the festive season here, one of them has embroidered stars.

I love hexies as you would have seen in several of my posts. I somehow find them very relaxing and de-stressing or a go-to project when I am watching tv. So this Friday was hexie time…
First I cut up fabric squares and basted them and then side stitched to form 6 hexie flowers.WoW! I just completed a batch in one night. That’s cool !
