I never did get through all the market pictures and do a post. Where does the time go???

I have a new obsession that came to light at market in Houston. Hexies. They were everywhere and I was just in love. I needed a sign on my back that said I stop for hexies. It kicked off when I went to a Sue Spargo schoolhouse, (actually two of them). She has a new book and great new fabric coming out.

 Of course there was the hand dyed wool that her sister dyes.

In addition to the book, she has a smaller book of embroidery stitches that you can use to stitch and/or embellish...Like the panel that will be out with her new fabric line.
The hexies she made with her new fabric.

Such beauty. sigh....

Then there was Tula Pink's hexie quilt which is English Paper piecing and just fantastic. The picture doesn't do it justice.

There were many more hexie sitings but these were my favorites.

Now that the wedding (vow renewal) and reception are over and I have started to recover I hope to keep up with the blogging.
More later and as always, happy stitching.


  1. The Tula Pink is gorgeous and very unusual for a hexie quilt. Love those colors. Is that one pieced by hand? I really like what some are doing with the larger hexies like the other one you posted too. I haven't really seen too many of them, but looks like fun. Are you going to tell us more about the vow renewal?

  2. It is never ending all the fun stuff to learn and do! I haven't done hexies yet. I will try not to be tempted until I do other things first!

  3. Gorgeous quilts, especially the Tula Pink one, but looks like lots of tedious work to me. Can't wait to see what you come up with! ---"Love"

  4. Oh my word, those are so beautiful - that English Paper piecing quilt is breathtaking. My sister once made a Grandma's Flower Garden with that technique - she has much more patience than I do.

    Hexies are big in crochet right now too.

    Sorry I missed this post - hope to see more now that the Christmas dust has settled! :)
