Hexies from the Archives

The theme this week for Tuesday Archives at Val's Quilting Studio is Hexagons. (Theme number 2 is Houses, but I don't have any house quilts.) Digging through my archives, I've uncovered more hexie projects than I remembered!

Nonna's Garden from 2011 is my favorite. You can read more about her here.



This hexie runner was a major turning point for me, which is one of the reasons it is still displayed in my blog banner. The modern prints and natural linen is so 2010 and I still love it so!
 

I dug out my mother's unfinished GFG blocks from the 1990's and finished the quilt for her birthday three years ago.


I really love this foundation paper-pieced table topper that I donated to a silent auction. I still need to make one for myself.


I do have this hexagon table topper that I made in 2007.


I made some rose stars for a swap in 2012.


This was the cutest pouch I've ever made and I gave it away. Some swaps are so difficult to part with!


My current hexie WIP. These fussy cut rings look like gears to me. I might applique them to a background, leaving lots of negative space.





Phew! That was a lot of hexagons! Head on over to Val's to see more.

These are great examples of hexagons. My favorite is the twisty table topper.
