Hexie Fever

Quite some time ago I began a Hexagon flower garden quilt using some lovely shabby, pastel fabrics.  I started putting them together and then as other projects came along and life got in the way it was boxed and put away in a cupboard.

I have been playing around on Instagram for a few months now and love the community over there.  Many are bloggers but I have also met some lovely new ladies too.  It's such a fun inspirational place to be and I have joined a few swaps as well.  One swap that I joined in the past week is a hexy flower swap.  There are 18 people in my group and we need to make 2 flowers per person in their chosen colours.  So once the list was released on Thursday I set about getting a start on my list.

It's a great way to meet new friends and also a great way to get some lovely new hexagon flowers in different fabrics.  

I have managed to finish a few sets ready to send off to their new owners

It has been so much fun choosing colours and prints for my partners.  I hope they like them.

All of this hexie talk made me get out an old favourite to do some more work on.  It's been a long time since I did any work on this.  I am leaving it out so that I can get inspired to do some more.

Talk about hexie fever - I have been hit big time !

Love your hexies.
Have fun with the exchange :)
I've started a hexie quilt,
but it's slowed down . . .I needed
coming here and seeing yours to get
inspired to start working on it again:)
Have a lovely day.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)
