Rainbow Hexie

Every day I sew a few hexie papers in, sometimes 10, sometimes 50 or more, depends on how much TV I watch, as I can't  just WATCH.  I fidget something terrible!

They go into two bins:

the random hexie bin
which ends up a bit pinky-brown

and the rainbow hexie bin
which is much brighter.

I coudn't remember why I stopped working on the rainbow hexie.
I laid it out in the garden
Ah! shortage of yellows.

So I sorted the rainbow hexies and bagged them up to see what I had (lesson of the day: do it as you go!).  Much better idea of where I'm at now........
There are enough of these to start some yellow rows.

And lots more to sew up.
I'm not sure I will ever get to the end of hexies, I will still be doing them into old age in this size as I cut a few every time I buy fabric, or cut for another project!


  1. Your rainbow hexagon is amazing! What size hexies are you using?

    1. Hi Julie, they are about 1 1/2". I have four quilts with this size on the go now!

  2. Beautiful! I love the colours!
    I have been making hexies for some years, for a quilt (or two), and have finally started to sew them together into what is going to be a colourwash quilt. I wonder how long it will take...?

  3. Love this quilt, just found it on 🍻 rest, did you finish it? This post is from 2013 & now is 2017.
