I am a hex addict.

I cannot deny it any longer and I think it's high time I own up to it. It all started by sneaking around late at night on the internet looking at hex photos. After a while, it wasn't doing much for me anymore . I needed the real thing. What's a girl to do? I checked out Christina's tutorial , via Ashley's post , I cut a bunch of strips of fabric and downloaded some of these. One thing led to another and I had a flower.... 0r 30...

{Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley}
I keep asking myself why I didn't choose a larger hexagon but there is no turning back now. I am in love... at least it feels like love. I stack them up and spread them out just to look at them. I count and recount them just as a 5 year-old would dollar bills at a lemonade stand. Yes, my friends.....I am an addict.

What a lovely pile of hex flowers! I love them! I have been wanting to try making these, but haven't found the "right" moment. I will definitely take advantage of the tutorial and hexagon paper you shared!

Stephanie said...

I think the hex addiction has hit the quilt world with a vengeance....it's like our version of crack! We will all end up in a room together sharing stories of our hex making days and all the dirty dishes, laundry and house work that never got done because we are too busy making more!!

Can't wait to see them all put together!

heehee - I haven't drank this koolaid yet! Looks like you fall in deep when you do.

They look great, but I'm not going to look at them too long. I may succumb.

You've been busy and it's looking fabulous! Funny tho---I've been dreaming of hexes as I need another hand project to travel with. I think you've inspired me to make the plunge!

Heehee I've put hexes on my to-do list but I'm saving them for when I have to take a long trip and won't have my sewing machine with me.

XOXO,

It's an addiction you can go public with and then get messages of encouragement from people like me; because, they're very cool looking.

That Girl said...

I share your addiction... don't worry, I hear it is fairly common!

I love the flowers and your fabric choices!

These are so adorable! The Hope Valley line is perfect for the vintage feel of these.

The finished product is going to be stunning!

Oooh, these are lovely!
They immediately made me think of the hex flower quilt my MIL's grandmother made her. We use it on my daughter's bed. You can see it here,
