Hexies, Hexies, Everywhere!!! Are You Making A Quilt Using Hexies???

Well, it seems like I am seeing on a lot of blogs these days lots and lots of hexies!!!    Is this a new trend or have hexies been around forever??
Susan over at Blackberry Creek Home Arts says she has been "hexed" and that she has become addircted to the little hexagon!!!  Very cute.  Jane over at Want It, Need It, Quilt It is making hexie flowers for a Craft Forum Swap
Christine down in Australia at Time Out Stitching just received a darling hexie flower in a hexegon swap she belongs to.  I'd love to find out about that swap!!
And look at this darling use of hexies over at La Vida Compartida
Shelley at Ac-quilt-sition is making bookworm bookmarks from her hexies
But I think my very favorite hexies are these fussy cut hexies that I saw and now cannot remember whose blog I saw them on.  As soon as I find the blogger these darling hexies belong to, I will post the blog.  Are these your cute hexies?
I was told the other day that Grandmother's Flower Garden is the most highly made quilt of all quilts
Is anyone out there working on a quilt that uses these cute little hexies - whether it is Grandmother's Flower Garden or any other quilt or project??  I'd love to hear from you!!

GFG was my very first finished quilt, and I've taught many a class over the years. I never tire of cute hexies.

I love the Hexies....I am makine a GFG right now. It may take me awhile but it is so relaxing to me to make these while I am watching tv. I did some small ones for Christmas ornaments that I found the idea on someones blog. They were stuffed and reversible..very cute. I haven't been on my blog in a long while but hope to post some pics soon on them. I have even looked into making the diamond shapes to make the stars. I LOVE THE HEXIES..:)

Oh YES! I love hexies...I just found a 1930's Grandma's Flower Garden quilt that is now in my room. I also have a bunch of flowers that were started by a friend of my mom's mom...nope that didn't come out right. My mom's friend's mom...I finished piecing what she had left, but I need LOTS more to make a quilt out of it.

Hexies are fun. It is amazing what all you can do with them. I have been working on a grandmother's flower garden quilt for.....hmmmm....over seven years (yes it is shameful) and I need to finish it one of these days.

Oh yes, I'm working on a LOOOONG term project called Insanity. I'm using 1/2 inch hexies. Had to take a break. Will get back to it soon, I hope.

I have been working on a GFG quilt for a few years now. I found a very, very worn antique quilt that had very small hexies in it and decided to make my own. Every flower has two different fabrics in it...I think it is just my excuse to buy more fabric. It has been a fun project, but I'm not getting very far very fast. My favorites are those that have been fussy cut. You can see my progress at

I love those fussy cut hexies and wish they were mine! I am in the middle of a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. Here are some pictures:
