My day is finally here! Welcome to the Be a Hexie Queen Blog hop hosted by Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt, and cheered by Debby Kratovil. Without delay, here are my projects:
Serendipity brought this wall hanging to life. I had been working on hexies with no particular project in mind when I heard about the blog hop. I signed up and started to think about what to do.
So, I grabbed a piece of white fabric, ric rac, made some yo-yos... I embroidered in between the hexies to emphasize the 'petals', added a scrappy border and quilted away, doodling all over the quilt.
Then, not wanting this wall hanging to be an 'orphan', I made a giant pincushion...
... by using blanket stitch to machine applique another hexie flower onto beautiful red wool, added a pearl to the middle of the yo-yo, and surrounded the whole thing with more ric-rac.
With a few more hexies leftover, I made my final project:
A hexie coin purse. This time I made a piece of 'fabric' with the hexies by zigzagging them together, added batting and ...
... handstitched the hardware on. This is the back side. The purse is lined with the same red fabric featured on the wall hanging.
It has been fun being a Hexie Queen for a day! I already know who will get these three matching projects this coming Christmas, and I hope she likes them!
