Hexies on Free Motion Mavericks

Welcome to Free Motion Mavericks (Week 244)

Enjoying some relaxing time outside
I'm on a resting holiday. That means sleeping a lot (up to 12 hours a day!), reading, quilting, and a little bit of gardening and blogging. So far I've managed to keep it relatively quiet except for my felting miss-adventure (see Related posts below).

I'm working on piecing one UFO and I did finish my Kingfisher Stitch-Along quilt top. I'll write a post before the end of the week since that was my July and August OMG.

Since I haven't done any free motion quilted (FMQ) this week, here are some great hexies that I'm working on for the #100hexies100days2019 on Instagram, hosted by Sew Foxy Mama (@sewfoxymama).

Here are weeks 4 to 6. We are now on Week 9 and I just have to post them - almost caught up!

Week 4: Starts with B
I had a lot of fun taking pictures of these hexies at work. Even my co-workers got in on the fun!

B is for Bench
B is for Bescherelle
(from my high school days!)

B is for Ball (my colleague's)

B is for books
(thank goodness not mine!)

B is for a very proud Beaver

B is for Binder and Box

B is for BAHHHHH
(That's an old postcard from the Twist Fibre Festival)

Week 5: Rainbow
A rainbow on the Gauguin Portraits exhibition
catalogue since my daughter and I spent so
much time there for her school class.

paint pouring masterpieces

Week 6: Adventure
What does adventure mean? For me it's road trips,
trying new quilting techniques or enjoying a great book

The golf hexie is for my husband :-)

  1. I have gotten back into hexies again too -

    1. Those are so cute Karen. Thanks for linking up!

  2. You've found some great ways to display those lovely hexies. We used to have a small flock of Lincoln Longwools, which looked very much like the sheep on the cover of the Twist magazine! I also love the featured flamingo quilt :)

    1. Thanks so much Janine. I think that the photo shoots are my favourite part of making hexies!

  3. Thank you for inviting me to your party! I have a massive stash of hexies that I could/should be using!

    1. Thanks for coming Celine. I can't wait to see what you make with your hexies :-)

  4. Thanks for changing your opening hours on your party! I often miss your linky by half a day, because of the way my work week falls I get around to reading your post every week just after close. I am hoping you are keeping this change so I can be a better linker now! Great hexies, your holiday looks enviable!

  5. Absolutely love your hexies among the flowers, Andrée, but it was the dictionnaire de (combien, 120?) verbes that got me laughing! So unlike the way English is (or rather, isn't) taught.

    The more I look at your pictures the more I gasp at how tiny your hexies are. They are gorgeous!


Hi! I would love to hear from you and I will try to answer you. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a message. :-)
