I was and still am excited about this hop. I loooove hexies! I can’t wait to see everyone’s projects. Unfortunately for me I didn’t get finished. So today I’m not the Hexie Queen. lol On top of remodeling our house, I took on a summer job. Our homeschool just started last week too. (*deep breath*) 🙂

So, getting on with project, I bought some hexie templates with the idea of machine sewing them. It worked out pretty good for the most part I just need more time to finish. Not enough time in a day.

So here is what I bought

Hexie Templates

and here is as far as I got.

Hexie Lap Quilt

I used fabric from my stash. I started out thinking I was going to make a bed runner. My reasoning for that was I had comforter that stayed folded at the end of my bed for like.. 7 yrs. (it did come off to get washed, lol) No kidding, I made the bed with it maybe 5 times. I really didn’t like the comforter. So while purging and donating items, I just threw the comforter in the donate box. Then I thought “I just make a bed runner to lay on the bed”, but my husband wouldn’t like the girly colors. So I changed my mind and now here I am, a lap quilt.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I really appreciate all the lovely comments and encouragement. You are really wonderful. Your comments are the best part of these hops.

Here is today’s hop schedule and have a wonderful time hopping.

  1. Even if it is not finished it is great!! I love the colors!! Just keep plugging along. This is not a race and yes it sounds like you have a lot to do. I have to remind myself to just keep breathing sometimes too. Hang in there!!

  2. Very nice! Don’t worry about not completing it on time – life happens and occasionally takes precedence over sewing :(. Keep up the good work! I love the colors.

  4. Your are going to have a very special lap quilt. I am sure the lure of completing it will be strong once life slows down.

  5. With all the distractions that you have it is a wonder that the hexies got to this point! There are never enough hours in the day to all that we would like to do and I say that as a retired person! This is lovely no matter what it is going to be called in the end!

  6. I just love it!! It will look great at the foot of your bed. Sounds like you are a busy girl. Don’t forget to take some time for yourself every few days…a long hot bath; a quiet, reflective walk…

  7. You are a hexie princess, then. =) Every hotel I stayed on a recent trip had bed runners instead of entire bedspreads. It was a new concept to me!

  8. Your lap quilt is pretty. Some men are bothered by girly colors and others are not – we all have our individual preferences. You have had a busy summer, year and you were still able to get this much accomplished – WOW! Thanks for participating and the great inspiration.

  10. It’s looking great! I have a couple of projects that are long-term (my orange peel quilt is over 2 years, now!). I like them BECAUSE they are long-term. 🙂 No stress. No worry. Will finish when I finish. We all need some of that in our lives, eh?

  12. Oh been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. I have been working so much, working in the yard, and canning that I have not set foot in my sewing room or even considered sewing for a week now. Hopefully things slow down for you soon too.

  13. I too am in the middle of a long-term hexagon quilt for my bed. I got distracted by a pattern I saw online at ReannaLilydesigns.com and so I made myself two 22″ wallhangings. I finished one this morning and posted it on flickr:

    I have the second ready to bind. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Best of luck finishing your lap quilt – it’s very pretty! Will you still make a hexie bed runner (in more masculine/less feminie colors?) It sure would be pretty as well!

  25. What you have so far is really beautiful! It’s like a watercolor quilt without all the defined lines of typical hexie quilts. I think you’re far enough along to finish soon, otherwise the end of your bed will remain naked! Kudos to you for machine sewing those! Thanks for sharing what you have because it’s lovely!

  26. That is no small task! I think it looks lovely so far and you have already done loads! Amazing. As for your husband…. just add a row of brown hexies and tell him it is a fusion quilt! Great work.
