Hexies from Iceland

One of the wonderful things about the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap is that the members are from all over the world including Edda who sent these beauties from Iceland right across the world to here, in Melbourne, Australia.
I've asked for my hexies to be in red, pink and white and I'm just sewing them together at random as they arrive.  I love how this quilt is coming together.  When it is big enough I will bag it and then hand quilt with pink perle cotton.  It is going to live on the back of this couch over my checked quilt.
I love the look of layers of fabrics whether on a couch or on the bed.  No minimalism in this house.


With Halloween nearly here I couldn't resist these little cuties.  You can find the patterns HERE at wonderful Paper-and-String.
Don't forget to pop over to the gorgeous Etsy shop too.
Happy Stitching
Love

  2. How fun to get a parcel all the way from Iceland!! Your hexies are looking wonderful! I like the way you are sewing them together as you go rather than waiting for them all to arrive and fussy over a layout.

  3. I love that hexie quilt and what a great idea to go with a color in different patterns. I also love your quilt on the back of the sofa. Did you make that? It's gorgeous! I love everything you do. And the little Halloween ornaments I pinned. Very cute! You always inspire me....thank you for that.
