flea market fancy hexagon giveaway

It’s been a long time since the last giveaway… we ought to remedy that, right?

hexagons

This is kind of silly, and maybe some of you won’t be interested, but remember those hexagons? I love making them, (and I’ll probably continue making more!) but it turns out that I don’t like sewing them together…

It’s sad, because I’ve seen such lovely hexagon projects on other blogs and on flickr (and I really wanted a hexagon pillow!), but I guess my patience for handsewing just isn’t there. At the rate I’m going, I really don’t think I’ll ever get to the point of having a finished hexagon project.

hexagons2

Anyway, that’s where you come in. I have this stack of hexagons made out of lots of prints from the Flea Market Fancy line… anyone want them? I’m sure there’s someone out there who does have the ability and patience to sew them into something really wonderful. (or if not, maybe you just want the FMF fabric – you’re also welcome to just remove the basting stitches and you’ll have small squares of FMF)

hexagons3

To enter, leave a comment here letting me know what you think of hexagons – (have you tried making any?, do you like them?, how do you feel about handsewing? etc…), and maybe what you’d make out of these hexagons if you won. We’re heading back home from California today and I’ll be sitting in the airport for a good part of the day, so your comments will keep me entertained. I’ll pick a winner on Thursday…

__

These hexagons are 1 1/4″, and I should also note that I cut out the paper hexagon shapes by hand, so I can’t absolutely guarantee that they’re all perfectly exact. I did my best though, so hopefully they’ll fit together as they should!!

Oh, and of course international entries are accepted!

Thanks for all your wonderful comments! Comments are now closed and I’ll pick and announce a winner tomorrow morning!

    Oooh – so pretty! I love those hexagon pillows – they would be beautiful in this fabric!

    Linda says:

    Are you in the San Diego airport? If so, HI! 8-)

    I would love to have them. I have more patience for sewing them together than I do making them. I might make a baby quilt for my newest grandson. They are very cute.

    Hope your flight goes well.

    Love handwork. . . I’m making hand pieced LeMoyne Stars for 2 quilts. I have some half inch hexagons started. . . they are really, really small~ Someday they will likely become appliqued flowers on a project. I’d love the honor of making something with your hexagons!

    Ruth says:

    ooooo, thanks for offering such a great giveaway! i have been scheming (ambitiously) to make a hex quilt! these would be a perfect addition to my small stash. :) have a good flight!

    nettie says:

    i’m with you, i don’t really like hand sewing. i’ve made one block of hexagons (one inch- how big are yours?), and it was the worst block EVER! took me over 7 hours to complete. i’d probably only go so far as to make a pillow, although I would LOVE a quilt some day, but not now.

    Sally says:

    Oh my goodness, those would make me so happy! I’ve been thinking about making a hexagon quilt, and I like that fabric! I love hand sewing, but I don’t love the fussy work of basting hexagons.

    Kristy V says:

    I love hexagon projects! I’ve been working on a hexagon quilt off and on for a couple years now, and due to poor planning…its gonna be huge when I’m done(in like..30 years) I just cant stop making hexes! if these are the right size, which I imagine they’re not, I’d put them in my quilt, or make a smaller wall hanging/doll quilt out of them.

    Jill says:

    I love hexagon’s! never made anything from them…but always admired from afar. :) I’m thinking a little quilt or table runners might be pretty. I love the colors. thanks have a great flight.

    Jenny says:

    good luck with your travels. I would love these gorgeous hexagons. the posibilities are endless! but Im think i would sew a few together grandmothers garden style for the start of a lovely quilt!

  10. 10
    Allison says:

    Oh oh oh! I’m so in love with the hexagons, I’d actually rather sew them to each other than make the hex!

  11. 11
    woolcat says:

    Oh, I’d love to have them! I like the portability of hand sewing. I actually have a hexagon quilt that is my longest running UFO… I started it in 1990! My fabric choices were a bit all over the place though, and that demotivates me from finishing them. But FMF hexagons already basted up? They’d be a pillow as quick as a flash!

  12. 12
    Marianne C says:

    I’m with other commenters (eek, sp?) I would rather sew them together than make them. I am wanting to make some spring/summer pillows for the sofa and these would work perfectly, thank you very much!!!!!

  13. 13
    Frances says:

    Wow, I love the hexgons! Such cheerful colours. My mum had a hexagon quilt that I remember from when I was little. I was always amazed at how she managed to sew them together. (It boggled my 7 year old brain!) But now I don’t mind the hand sewing – good for keeping busy while in front of the tv.

  14. 14
    Linda says:

    I would give those hexagons a good home…I only have one FMF fat quarter so I’d love to have a “little” stash. I haven’t tried making anything with hexagons so perhaps a pillow or table mat would be a great project to start with! Thanks for the giveaway…

  15. 15
    MeganAnne says:

    Oooooooo! Those are lovely. I haven’t tried making hexs yet and only do a bit of hand sewing, but I love it. I’ve been wanting to try to make a hex quilt, but can’t (shouldn’t) start a new project until I finish sewing my wedding dress. If I win… these would be the perfect way for me to “start” something new without really starting it. Plus, I could put them together on the train during my commute.

  16. 16
    Megan L says:

    Ooh Ooh pick me! I LOVE to hand sew, and FMF is one of my favorite lines ever!

  17. 17
    Kristin says:

    Oh, how fun! I love hexagons! Never done real ones, though, just half-hexagons. Hand-sewing and me have a love/hate relationship. I love the portability, but sometimes I’m too impatient! And I have NO Flea Market, so that would be awesome.

  18. 18
    Sonia Bartholomew says:

    These are gorgeous. I’ve never tried hexagons, but baseball season is fast approaching and I’d love a little hand project to take along while my son plays. This would be perfect. Thanks for the chance!

    Wyndy T says:

    I haven’t tried to make hexagons yet…….. but I would love to win the ones you made!

  20. 20
    Michele says:

    I’ve made enough hexies for one small quilt block! My hand sewing needs work! But I absolutely adore hexagons, so I know I’ll attempt them again. I never learn!

  21. 21
    erica says:

    I am away from home right now, so I brought along a bunch of fabric and paper (thanks to your post and link) to put together some hexagons. I love them. Hand sewing is my favorite calm activity, ever. :) These Hexagons would be cute in a pillow for sure…Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. 22
    nic says:

    I love hexagons, and love sewing them together most. I’d be happy to make something from them and send it back if you want?

  23. 23
    Lori says:

    Ohhh so pretty! I just started a hex project and have found that I like the sewing together but not basting the hexs so this would be perfect. I have found quite a few pillow projects on flickr that I’m dying to recreate. Happy travels!

  24. 24
    Johanna says:

    oh, yes, here please! I have been trying to get some free time to get finally around to trying out the hexagons that have been blooming on most blogs. They are just so pretty! Sadly, nothing yet; must be the time I put into reading blogs that’s missing when sewing :)
    (and well, not to brag, but I have been trained (and actually enjoy) sewing by hand. After the first painful moments it gets kind of relaxing. I like how I can think about my life and the world when sewing by hand. )
    And if sewing by hand doesn’t appeal to you, why don’t you zigzag them together on the sewing machine? I know that doesn’t look as pretty but it is better then not having a hexagon pillow.
    You could also sew them onto some sort of background fabric so that it looks like every other hexagon is from that fabric.
    I am already drooling over what I could do with those hexagons!
    Hope you have a safe trip!

  25. 25

    Love, love, love hexagons!! In fact that is where I started my love of hand stitching. Have made two dolly quilts by hand using hexagons, am now doing a large hexagon quilt and scored an entirely hand stitched fifty year old grandmothers flower garden quilt top at a thrift store. Please let me put them together!

  26. 26

    I have done a quilt with hexagons and started another one, I usually do them when sitting in the car beside DH and being away for the weekend at my family members, who all live far away. I would love to use your beautiful fabrics to make some gorgeous summer pillows!

  27. 27
    Jacque. says:

    ohhhh, Ashley. I have long admired your work…and was drooling over your hexagons. I’ve never worked with them, but have wanted to start something. So, I would certainly put these to good use. I enjoy handsewing…especially now that the tv shows American Idol and (next week) Dancing With The Stars have me sitting in my big easy chair for many hours…need something to keep my hands busy! Otherwise, I eat. And, eat. Sewing is so much better for me! Thanks for the opportunity! These are lovely!

  28. 28
    Tong says:

    They are so pretty, I can’t believe you are giving them away! I’ve tried making hexagons myself, they are definitely addictive! And they are so versatile, you can do so much with them! I would love to have your hexes, they’ll have a good home with me, I promise! =)

  29. 29
    Robyn says:

    I cannot believe you are giving these beauties away!! You are so nice!! I love hexagons!!! I have never made them myself but I’ve always been so intrigued by projects done with them. I’d love to make a pillow with these! They are the absolute perfect colors for my room – I would just die!!! They are beautiful!!

    abby o says:

    Well I just have to jump on this one…I’ve spent the last six years making a grandmother’s flower garden quilt, I think I now have 57 flowers made of 1″ hexagons! And I have to say that actually putting them together into a quilt has been pretty horrendous…but I LOVE the look and it has been so rewarding to make something all by hand. This is destined to be my daughter’s quilt (due in July!) SO…I’m not sure what size yours are but I can promise is to love and appreciate your hexagons and find them a happy home somewhere…if not in my quilt then certainly in a little pillow or some sort of accessory to go with the quilt. Thanks for the chance, and have a good trip!

  31. 31
    Emily says:

    Love these hexagons! My aunts and grandmother made grandmother’s flower garden hex quilts in the 70s with novelty double-knits. What a lot of work for something so… not suited to our modern tastes. :) These would look great in the corner on the back of a quilt or around the label.

  32. 32
    Kaye Prince says:

    So pretty, I would definitely love to put these to good use! I really love the look of hexagons, but haven’t tried making them myself – I’m going to try out the method in Rashida’s book “I Love Patchwork” soon! I think I would either turn these into a pillow with linen borders, or try my hand at making some myself (maybe I’ll actually cut into my small FMF stash) and make a bigger project like a table runner or something.

  33. 33
    Sherri says:

    I love hexies and would love to add these to a quilt! I also love making them and don’t like sewing them together as much, but the finished product is so lovely! Thanks for the chance!

  34. 34
    sandra says:

    hexagons are my pattern of choice right now. i have never attempted this way of doing hexagons and would love to try it out. i’ve seen them done on a white back and randomly placed on a quilt top, i think that’s what i would do with them. and it doesn’t hurt that some of them are made out of Flea Market Fancy. i found out about that line a little late to buy any.
    HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!

  35. 35
    Kolleen says:

    I have grown to love hand sewing–it allows me to take something to do along or even to sit in the living room with the rest of the family. These lovely little hexes would make great pillows! Or even a nice table topper. Thanks for the chance!

  36. 36
    ~Michelle~ says:

    I’ve been watching all the hexie madness going on in blogland… I’m not sure I can handle the piecing, too scared to try. But they do make for a beautiful quilt or pillow or whatever they are made into. Would it be a crime to try machine stitching them down??

  37. 37
    Valerie says:

    I’ve never tried hexagons before, and if I’m going to be completely honest I have no idea if I would like handsewing them together or not, but I’m always looking for something portable to keep my hands busy in the carpool line :) And I do think they’d make a super fun pillow :)

  38. 38
    Nichole says:

    i really like the look of the hexagons, although, i have not made any yet. i like having hand sewing projects to take along on road trips. these would be a nice project. i’d probably make a doll quilt out of them.

  39. 39
    Linda Ashworth says:

    I’ve never owned any FMF but seen it mentioned in SO many Flickr quilt photos. I love handsewing, blanket stitch applique, handquilting, hand stitching the binding on my quilts etc so these hexagons would be ‘just up my street’! Hope I’m lucky.

  40. 40
    Amanda says:

    I have several flower garden blocks that were my great grandmothers. I would love to make more to go with it to have an actual quilt. But hand sewing is also hard for me to do so a pillow would probably be what happened!

  41. 41
    Julie says:

    I love hexagons! Personally, I think sewing them together is the best part.. and making them drives me a little bit crazy.. so I would be than happy taking them off your hands ;) Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  42. 42

    Am moving in on liking them — but I haven’t made any yet. I’m creating a “take along” pouch of hexes for our flight to Israel over Easter. I figured it’ll be a good trial run…especially with 13 hours in which I must occupy myself. *grin*

  43. 43
    Anna says:

    I would love to take them off your hands! I have never worked with hexies but have always wanted to – and I’d probably start small with a pillow. I love to hand sew… it’s somehow therapeutic for me.

  44. 44
    Patty says:

    What a great giveaway! I have always loved hexagons. They have a way of keeping one’s eye moving across a quilt. I would want to make additional to make at least a throw. Thanks for the chance. I love them.

  45. 45
    Ruth says:

    I do not have much patience for hand sewing either but I have been tempted to try a small project using hexagons. i even went and bought templates but have not motivated yet! Maybe if I win these hexagons it will inspire me!

  46. 46
    Kara says:

    I love this fabric! I would really like to try making a hexagon quilt. They are so neat looking. It would fun to give it a try on fabric that I love.

  47. 47
    Abbey says:

    Oh those hexagons are beautiful! Don’t know for sure what I would do with them, but I know I could make something great!

  48. 48
    Anna says:

    Oh my goodness, I would LOVE those hexagons. I am starting a collection of my own that I am going to try to make a quilt top out of. It would be nice to have a head start with some fabrics I don’t have. I am really getting into the hand sewing thing as it is something you can do while watching silly TVs shows and movies.

  49. 49
    Tracey J says:

    You just named the reason I hadn’t jumped in to these yet… however, I’m discovering that hand-sewing is a good thing to have around when the baby falls asleep in the car and I want to let him keep sleeping.

    I love yours!

    I’ve done pieced hexagons in some florals by Lecien… I really like the pieced ones.

  50. 50
    Gina says:

    I have never really like hand sewing, but I just had to try some hexagon sewing with some scraps. I must say that I surprised myself! I kind of enjoyed the slower pace of hand sewing, and have semi-committed myself to making a quilt out of them. Granted, I have acknowledged that it will take me years to complete owing to my lack of time and general decrease in motivation, but I think I’m okay with that! At least I’m not fooling myself into thinking it will be a fast project.

  51. 51
    Charlie says:

    I’m not that keen on hexagons, but I love pentagons (something to do with their relation to 5-point stars I think – a very aesthetically pleasing shape).
    If it would be ok, I would love to re-use some of the fabric to make one of these Pentagon Baby Balls: http://laeroport.typepad.com/files/pentagon-baby-ball-tutorial.pdf – my little one has just started learning to kick and throw so a lovely spring-like jangly ball would be perfect.
    I’d use the rest to practice my hand-sewing (I have big clunky fingers so I need the practice!) and make myself something lovely – perhaps a bag (then mother and son could be coordinating – hee!!)

  52. 52
    Jenny says:

    Pillows pillows pillows! I’d sew them onto some linen I’ve been hanging on to for ‘just the right project’. My sofa is in dire need of spring-y pillows. I’ve got about 5 projects half-finished and I’m forcing myself to finish those before trying the hexes that everyone is addicted to right now. I’m so tempted, though. Thanks for another fun giveaway!

  53. 53
    holly p says:

    I love the hexagons, and that fabric is wonderful! I would use them to make some kind of a quilt, and actually keep it for myself for once :)

  54. 54
    qsogirl says:

    Wow, after all your work making those, you’re giving them away?! I actually have found that I enjoy handsewing, and I like having projects that I can take with me on car trips, etc. I’d love to win the hexagons! Thank you!!

  55. 55
    Lisa says:

    These are beautiful, I don’t know how you will part with them! I think I would make a pillowcase or doll quilt to hang. I do like working with hexagons. I am currently working on a quilt containing 1″ hexagons that will be a queen size when finished. I only work on it a few days at a time though, so it is my long term project. I like hand sewing. It is nice while watching TV, and to take on long car trips.

  56. 56
    Holly says:

    Oh yay! I just bought the plastic hexagon templates and will admit that I was going to try to sew them together on the machine, lol. You could always topstitch them to a pillow or purse?! =)

  57. 57
    Stephanie says:

    I have never made anything with hexagons, but would sure love to try. The fabric looks adorable and while I usually only sew using a machine, I would be willing to try hand sewing. I would love to win to see what I could come up with!

  58. 58
    sherri says:

    Ok…so there are giveaways and then there are GIVEAWAYS…this is definitely a GIVEAWAY. Flea Market Fancy and hexagons…two of my favorite things ever! I’d definitely keep them as hexagons and make a wallhanging…framed…because I’d want those fabrics to inspire me every day! I would love working with them since I also love handsewing! Have fun at the airport!

  59. 59
    portia perdue says:

    i only started making these because of YOU! i am an instant gratification type so i didn’t think i’d like it, but i’m addicted. the handsewing part isn’t my favorite either, but it is gratifying when you’ve stitched a little blob of them together and can finally remove the paper. now, more paper to make more hexes!
    ♥

  60. 60

    Yes, yes, and one more yes, I would love to have them!! to pet them, sew them, and maybe even name them! I have not tried making hexes yet, but love all the wonderful projects that I see in blog land. I learned how to hand sew from my mom when I was a young girl, but sadly, do not do it often. Things go so much faster with my sewing machine. I think if I chose to do it in my down time, it could work out to be a relaxing focal point, kinda like knitting. I know exactly what I would make with them….another doll quilt for Izzy. I know, you would think that 3 is enough, but I can’t get over how much she loves her doll quilts. It makes me want to sew her a new one every week! Have fun on your trip, hopefully it is to somewhere nice and warm!!

  61. 61
    Sara says:

    Stuck in an airport? Then we will entertain you!! I’ve never done hexagons, but after hand quilting a king sized quilt (took ten years!), I think I’ve learned to enjoy handsewing. At least I’m good at threading a needle now! ha! I love the retro feel of hexagons – reminds me of grandmas crocheted afghans – but I would combine that in an applique sort of way on a modern looking quilt.

  62. 62
    celine says:

    my granny made me a hexagon quilt when i was seven. it got misplaced when we moved house, and till today i still miss it …. looking at your hexagons brought back lots of wonderful memories of my childhood and my granny. i miss them both ALOT!!
    i will be thrilled to win this ….to sew myself “my childhood blankie” in loving memory of my granny.

  63. 63
    Linnea says:

    I can’t believe you’re willing to part with these! I too LOVE making hexagons…unfortunately I also love sewing them together so I often don’t wait until I have enough done to determine a layout or anything. Instead of little independent hexagons I now have little piles of somewhat sewn together hexagons. It would be awesome to have enough completed at once to be able to plan a design.
    Hand sewing is one of my favourite things. I rarely get a chance to sit on the sofa and relax with music or TV and hand sewing provides the perfect excuse.
    I hope these pretties find a good home :)

  64. 64
    LPQuilts says:

    I would love them? Oddly, I don’t think I have the manual dexterity or the patience to baste those suckers. However, I like handsewing while on camping trips. I might even send you a little finished object!

  65. 65
    Amber Hansen says:

    Love them! I think I would either sew them together and make a little hexagon streamer for my sewing room or make a quilt out of them!

  66. 66
    gwyneth says:

    oooh, i so love hexagons, but have been too scared to start any. this would be perfect!

  67. 67
    Mary says:

    My sewing machine has been in the shop for a month so I definitely could hand sew them together! Have you thought about ladder stitching them together instead of whipstitching? I ladder stitch all my bindings now and it has completely changed my mind on hand sewing. I LOVE doing it.

  68. 68
    Saranya says:

    what a coincident that I started making hexagons templates from fleecer paper. I totally agree that makiing these haxagon is fun.
    I plan to make my own blanket but you know it’s long way to go with thousand hexies:-)

  69. 69
    kelly mae says:

    I do enjoy hand sewing, and your hexagons would be lovely to work with. I think they would be a cute addition to a pillowcase, or doll quilt. Love that FMF!

  70. 70
    Wendy says:

    I just got the hexagon bug myself, have made about 15 so far, they really are addictive! Would love to give these a good home in Alaska – I would make a pillow to make my couch happy!

  71. 71
    Krista says:

    ooh, I’d love them too! I’ve always wanted to try doing hexagons, and I really like to handsew when we go out to our cabin and have some wonderful down time. I also missed the FMF fabric rush, so these would be extra special. I’d turn them into a wallhanging for my daughters’ room. Safe travels!

  72. 72
    Emily says:

    I cannot believe you’re giving those away! They are so beautiful! I’ve been drooling over all the hexagon quilts and pillows online but decided I didn’t have time to make them. At the same time, with 3 little kids and no dedicated sewing/quilting space, I’ve really been looking for a small hand sewing project to relax with in the evenings while I watch a good movie. These would be perfect!! And thanks for all the inspiration–you haven’t been quilting for long so it makes me think that one day I could be as prolific as you (when my kids are grown, that is.) Thanks!

  73. 73
    Alyson says:

    Wow, that is really generous. I have been wanting to try hexagons for a while now but have not and would love to try these! I also would love to have a little flee market fancy! I started quilting just as these fabrics were hard to find. I have admired all the beautiful projects with this fabric line. Thanks for the giveaway!

  74. 74
    Jenn says:

    I love hexagons! I haven’t had a chance to make any myself yet, but I really want to, one day! I only just started machine quilting last month! I’m all for hand-sewing, as my sewing machine is in the shop and I’m going crazy not having something to work on!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  75. 75

    I wish I could make them, I just don’t think I have it in me, somehow I think I could find something to do with them. I do like hand sewing! funny how those things work…

  76. 76
    Rikke says:

    I would love to have them! My fabric stash is really small and I’m lacking the patience for sewing fabric to the cardboard. These would be perfect to make my first quilt. :)

  77. 77
    Mailyn says:

    I have never tried making a hexagon, but would love to have these and make a quilt. My mother had a quilt with hexagons years ago and it would be fun to make one!
    Hope I am chosen!

  78. 78
    Kathy says:

    I would love these hexagons. I’ve wanted to do one of these projects – but haven’t had the time to get to work on them. Skip the first few steps might get me there quicker! I would probably make a pillow out of them – or maybe a duvet cover (I bought a muslin duvet that I have been looking for something to cover it with). I don’t usually hand sew – but I always have 1 project in a bag to take to my kids’practices/games – as I have 3 boys – all playing lacrosse. If you can’t send the hexagons – please send no rain vibes – as the kids have to wear snorkels along with their lacrosse helmets!

  79. 79

    I do like working on hexagons but like you and not into the whole quilt… I have seen so many neat linen bags & pillows with just a small splash of colored hexagons that are just wonderful…that is more me (style & realistic accomplishment!)

  80. 80
    charlotte says:

    i have hexagons on my to-do list once i finish with my current wips… i would make a fun pillow with them and maybe a cute tote with a few sewn on!

  81. 81
    jaybird says:

    are you kidding me?? i heart hexagons… A LOT! {just check my blog} i’m about to be hosting a hexagon quilt a long too… I’d mix them with white and make a fantastic little quilt… and since i have ZERO FMF.. you’d make my day if i won.. since i could finally have some FMF in my life!!

  82. 82
    Jessy says:

    I can’t believe you would part with these! Hexagons are great, but then made out of the coveted Flea Market Fancy? Generous! I would definitely make a pillow. I haven’t actually made any hexagons myself, but I love to hand sew. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Oh! Great way to “finish” a UFO! :) I’ve never made anything with hexagons, but would love to try something small, like a pillow for my sewing room.

    Meghan says:

    I was just thinking about hexagon quilts, and wondering how easy it would be to sew them together. I’d love a chance to try it out–and if I were the winner of this giveaway, that would certainly be the motivation I would need! I think I’d probably opt for making a baby quilt with some sort of modern take on the traditional hexagon pattern. Thanks!

    I was just showing a friend one of my hand quilting projects. “That’s a lot of work,” she said and I was like “hm. You’re right. But I love hand sewing!” What 25 year old doesn’t? Ha. Anyway, my next big project was to be hexagons so, um, YEAH I want yours! Plus I don’t own any FMF. PLUS I haven’t won a giveaway in like forever! Yeah, I think it’s time. :) Enjoy your flight.

    Maria says:

    I don’t mind sewing them together, although I don’t have my 30′s reproduction ones done. I’m not sure what they’d be. I’d have to lay them out and let them talk to me!

  87. 87

    Hi Ashley! I’ve been wanting to work with hexagons since I saw YOUR “sprinkling of hexagons” quilt! Though I’m not the best hand sewist, I think I could do a “sprinkling” to come up with a gorgeous quilt like yours!

    abby says:

    These are so beautiful! I hate/love handsewing projects. I really don’t have the patience, but love to have a portable project for the half of my life I spend waiting in the car for kids at school/dance/practice/games. And I am working on pillows for the couch right now, and these would be perfect!

    Hannah says:

    My first thought was “This would be the perfect project to work on during all the long flights and layovers on my honeymoon!” Then I saw that you’re actually in the airport right now, and I had to laugh that you didn’t seem to see things the same way.

    I haven’t tried hexagons yet, but my fiance is pretty crazy about geometric shapes (he saw a hexagon shaped wedding cake at the bakery, and that’s really the only wedding detail he’s been extremely opinionated about since then), so I could definitely make something for our new home that we’d both love.

    Rosey says:

    I’m currently in a hexagon frenzy and would love to add these to the stack. Love your work but can see that the hand sewing thing would really slow you down! How do you turn out so many beautiful quilts so fast!! Constantly inspired by your work!!

    Christy says:

    Hexagons would be a new endeavor for me, but I’m up for anthing at the moment. Hand sewing is for me. For years I was scared of my sewing machine so I hand sewed everything. Now I love my sewing machine, so anything goes. Thanks again for another great giveaway.

  92. 92
    Samantha says:

    I love the hexagons!! I’ve always been a little afraid of them, but I think the gorgeous FMF fabrics would be enough to get me hand-sewing!

    Corrinne says:

    Oh, I’ve been wanting to try hexagons. These are so cute. AND, I came late to the quilting party and have missed out on most Flea Market Fancy. I would love to have these little treasures!

    Sarah says:

    I would love them! I love hexagons and I love flea market fancy but don’t even own a scrap of it!

    While I was reading this post I kept thinking “please be 2in hexagons, please be 2in!”. If they had, they would have worked perfectly with this project I am working on…

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/46557406@N05/4360263541/

    Unfortunately, I guess they won’t make it in that quilt but I’d still love them to use for a pillow!

    Enjoy your flight and thanks for the giveaway!

    DivaQuilts says:

    I have this great idea for using hexagons (top secret, shhhh!); but I don’t have the patience to MAKE hexagons so this is perfect for me! lol

    I’m not a hand sewer, though I’ve started embellishing art quilts by hand and am enjoying the zen of it all.

    Ellen says:

    I love hand-sewing! I made one hexagon quilt . . . but ruined it when I tried to bind it. It’s somewhere in the UFO Closet of Doom right now . . . some day I’ll pull it out and fix it, but hexagons are MY FAVORITE:) Thanks for the giveaway! You are sweet!

    How fantastic! I would love to be included int he giveaway. I’ve never tried hexagons, but I would love to give a go! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Kat says:

    Oh I was SO hoping you’d give these away (or consider making a whole bunch for me!)!! I love hand-stitching, and don’t even mind baste-stitching a whole mess of them…I DREAD cutting out the forms though! I’d probably never make a hex quilt without these solely because I have no desire to cut out a bazillion little cardboard hexes. Though once I cut them out, I’d probably use them over and over again, so who knows.

    Anyways, I would love love love these!

    (And if you’re really in South Burlington, VT, you wouldn’t even have to pay shipping…I’m up there every month or two anyways!)

  99. 99
    Sarah says:

    ooh….I have been wanting to experiment with hexagons for a good 2 years now. And the fabrics you chose? Wonderful! I think I would either do a a pillow, a baby quilt or make a tree out of it a la wee wonderfuls.

  100. 100

    I have never sewn any hexagons before. When I was younger I did a ton of hand sewing, but I haven’t done as much lately…if I won this fantastic giveaway I guess it would give me a good chance to see how much I enjoy hand sewing still. I think the nice thing about it, is that you can hand sew while doing something else, like watching a movie, or visiting with friends!

    Katie B says:

    i can think of plenty to do with the hexagons! not to mention i hae never won a giveaway in my life. there is always? a first time? hopefully fingers and toes crossed

  105. 105
    Kat says:

    Oh dear, I had the same problem with them. Trying to sew together not-quite-perfect hexagons would quadruple the problem. I would probably pick apart the hexagons and use the little squares for a Cathedral Window quilt… they sound just right for it.

  106. 106
    Kaelin says:

    I love Denyse Schmidt and I love hexagons, so it’s the perfect storm! I taught myself to sew via the internet and didn’t own a sewing machine until a year ago, so I did a lot of hand-sewn quilts those first few years. I love how you aren’t tied to a specific spot with hand quilting…I can lay on the sofa and watch TV, sit outside on the porch, or pass time on a long car trip :)

    I’d make a baby quilt with them and either hoard it for my future children, or pass it on to my cousin who’s having her first baby (and it’s the first grandchild on that side of the family! exciting!)

  107. 107
    Vicki says:

    Great pictures of your hexagons! I’ve never made any, but would love to play with some. I think they’d make a great bag of some sort.

  108. 108
    Rebecca says:

    Oh no! Do not take out those basting stitches just to to have squares of fmf. All that effort would be wasted! I love sewing them together. I’ll be a good home for them. I promise!

  109. 109
    Jen S. says:

    I would love your FMF hexagons! I actually wanted to see what all the fuss was about and I tried making some a couple of months ago. Read that–I actually stopped at 2, not because I didn’t like making them (definitely addictive), but because I have so many other projects that require my attention first! That said, I haven’t tried hand-sewing them together yet, but I think they’d be great at least to keep hands busy while watching t.v. or away from home. I recently fell hard for FMF, so I think I’d stick it out even if I didn’t like the hand-sewing, ha! Have a great flight back home. Hope you enjoyed your time in Cali (sounds like you made your way around)! And thanks for a great giveaway!

    marit says:

    I am working on a hexagon quilt myself, 1″ heater ross fabric. It is a “labour of love”, takes a lot of time, and that’s fine. I would love to get my hands on those pretty hexagons of yours – and turn them into a quilt or a pillow. I could even make you a pillowcase, just give me the measures. That would be a nice way to say how much I appreciate reading your blog!

    ; )

  111. 111
    Tammy says:

    I love, love, love your hexagons! I’ve been working my way through making a collection of hexagons myself – from some Mary Engelbreit fabrics, so a much different “feel” than your FMF ones. I love having a handpiecing project available to work on while watching TV – makes me feel slightly less guilty about watching all those reality TV shows =)

    I still don’t know what I’ll do with my hexies, but I know what I’d do with your yours… piece them together for a pillow.

  112. 112

    I love hand sewing. Sewing the binding on a quilt is my favorite part of quilting. I also do hand embroidery. I’ve just sketched a tote bag I’m going to make with hexagons and Kona coal.

  113. 113

    I would LOVE a FMF Hexagon Pillow!! Or a number of other things that I could make with them! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Dresden says:

    I’m not gonna lie…I’m pretty obsessed with hexagons. As seen here, http://postsofinspiration.blogspot.com/2009/11/couple-new-things.html , I made this for my mom and would love to make another or possibly sew them together to make a cute center piece for my new dining table! I am super busy with school and work and just haven’t had the time to cut out the hexagons. Every time I see your quilts I drool…well maybe not literally but in my head I do-AMAZING! Thanks for the chance to win :)

  115. 115
    Katie says:

    Oh Ashley,

    What a great giveaway! Thank you. I would love a chance to win them. I was going to a hexagon project to the beach this year, and flea market fancy to boot. Oh me, oh my!

  116. 116
    julie says:

    would love to get some fmf – i´ve never had any! i really like looking at stacks of hexagons so they would be great inspiration to add to a pile and make something. i think i´d add a lot of equilateral triangles because the hex projects i see get a bit monotonous. though piecing even smaller triangles might make me crazy… thanks!

  117. 117
    amisha says:

    we are the opposite… i love stitching the hexagons together but not the paper-cutting and basting parts! :) if i won these i would do a hexagon pillow… inspired by your far far away hexagon quilt, with hexagons scattered over a solid field.
    thank you for all the inspiration you share here, ashley!

  118. 118
    Jaime says:

    Would LOVE them, I have started a fmf hex quilt and these would be a lovely addition!

  119. 119
    Melissa says:

    Love, love, love that you’re doing this giveaway! These could be an amazing addition to the huge stack I already have going. I started just after seeing your hex post and cannot stop! It’s kind of becoming a problem because I never want to leave the house!

  120. 120
    Emily says:

    my mom is currently making the most amazing grandmother’s flower garden quilt and i get more and more inspired each time i see it! these would just put me over the edge (and give me a reason to FINALLY cut into my FMF stash to make more hexagons!)

  121. 121

    Oh yes! I would love them. I love hexes, I’ve never made any, and if I won them I wouldn’t have to! Award the prize to me, the lazy person!

  122. 122
    Valerie says:

    Heck yes, I want them! I would love to make a pillow, and since you already did half the work, this procrastinator extraordinaire could surely finish the rest. :)

  123. 123

    I love hexagons. I need some hand sewing practice, so I think I’d start with a pillow or two. I’ve never made any hexes, but maybe this would help me get started!

  124. 124

    I have a pattern for a hexagon quilt that will be “my crowning achievement” quilt. I have not started it. I would not use these for that quilt. Mine will be a family memory quilt. BUT having these hexagons that you did made give me a chance to play, experiment and practice. They will be a much needed learning tool to help me on the path to quilt nirvana!

  125. 125
    em says:

    i would LOVE these!!! hexagons are my favorite lunch-time activity…i can’t bring my machine to work (wish i could, i think about it all day) so i like to always have a hand-sewn project to take with me for any spare moments throughout the day!

  126. 126
    Donna says:

    I love hexes. . .it’s true that the sewing together part is less fun than the hex making but I still love the finished product AND it’s sewing I can do anywhere, which I value!

    I recently made a hexy quilt for Doll Quilt Swap 8 on flickr and loved it . .was the first thing I’ve made that I had a hard time giving away, actually!

    Would be so pleased to win your hexes!!

  127. 127
    KristenA says:

    Oh my! I’ve never tried hexagons. I was just getting ready to try with the next ORBC quilt-along where Julie from Jaybird Quilts is going to do a few tutorials. I do, however, love handsewing, so I’d love to win them!!!!! I just finished embroidering St. Patrick’s Day skirts for my girls to wear to school today…

  128. 128
    Leanne says:

    I have fallen in love with so so many hexagon projects but have never done one myself. I think I would have to start with a pillow to see if I could get the hang of it. Or maybe, I’d take them apart and use up all those delicious FMF squares (I don’t have any of the fabric) – terrible, I know.

  129. 129
    Rachel says:

    oooh, me, me! I’d probably applique them on projects, which would allow to avoid trying to piece hexagons. They’re adorable!

    Mama Mel says:

    I LOVE the hexagons! Since I am new to quilting, I haven’t yet even tried triangles, let alone any other shape. But, I plan to get more adventurous in the future. I am always drawn to hexagon quilts, especially since they are the shape of a honeycomb and my name (Melissa) means “honeybee”. I would really like to try a hexagon quilt someday! As far as hand-sewing goes, that’s how I learned how to sew. I taught myself how to use a sewing machine less than 2 years ago. Although I’m getting better at machine sewing, I still think I am better at hand-sewing. :) I really LOVE your blog and seeing all the BEAUTIFUL quilts you make. It gives me inspiration to start making more.

  133. 133
    Virginia says:

    So pretty. I think they’d make a great placemat or tablerunner!

    Christine says:

    Haha, you’re funny, making hexagons and then giving them away. It’s a smaller version of loving to make quilts but not having use for all of them and giving them away (happens to me a lot).

    I have a great plan for these in mind, a quilt straight from my imagination. Maybe my luck will be with me this time around!

    Cheers,
    Christine

    Vickie E says:

    I love to paper piece! I have done several small quilts this way. I currently have a quilt that I refer to as my ‘life time’ quilt. I have been hand piecing it for nearly 12 years. I started it while riding in the car on the way to meet my future in laws. It’s a 1930′s hexagon one patch quilt. At this point it is baby quilt sized…I want to make it queen size! I have 1000 hexies waiting to be sewn…..
    I’d love to use your hexs for a small wall hanging/quilt.

  136. 136
    Meg in CT says:

    I love hexes, and have a little hand-sewing project of 1930′s hexes in the works at the moment. I like handwork so that I don’t always feel so guilty watching mindless tv on a night off, and hexes are a great little project to take the edge off that guilt! I’d love to win these FMF hexes–my couch needs some new pillows, and the bright, springy colors in FMF would be just the ticket!

  137. 137
    Emily says:

    OH MY! BEST giveaway ever! I have not tried those little hexes, I WANT too, but I HAVE to finish some wips before attempting anything else. I have set some rules for myself, I have a basket of unfinished things, things I really do want to finish, but my ambitions get the best of me– nothing else goes in unless something comes out! SO TECHNICALLY this wouldn’t be a new project it would be one to finish up, RIGHT!? Depending on how many there are, probably a pillow with lots of white, or maybe gray. I reeeeealy like hand sewing, I don’t do nearly enough of it, this would be perfect!

  138. 138
    Holly says:

    Such a timely post! Your pictures of the Flea Market Fancy hexes inspired me to raid my own scrap bin to start basting some hexes. Love it!! I also happen to LOVE hand stitching, so I would love the chance to stitch your hexagons into something pretty. I suspect that I would have to make a pillow for my livingroom. I wasn’t lucky enough to have any of the Flea Market Fancy fabric, so this would be a great treat for me! Quality hand stitching time, and my very own bits of cheerful Flea Market Fancy to enjoy. Great giveaway. Thanks!

  139. 139
    Melissa says:

    I’ve been admiring your hexegons and thinking about trying them. Not sure if I have the patience to make them and then sew them together but if I had them already made . . . Thanks for the chance!

    ellen says:

    Every time I see another hexagon project I end up perusing fabrics trying to come up with a combination that is Just Right… and always get stuck at that point. if I won these hexes you’d have already done the hard part for me – the sewing part is methodical and meditative for me.

    I dream of flea market fancy- literally and just last night was surfing etsy to get ideas for a hexagon project. I’ve never tried one and am anxious to. Thanks for the creative inspiration.

    I’m in the middle of a hexagon table runner. I find that sewing them is a great project for cuddling with kitties on the sofa. I may be biased, though. I’m terribly fond of hand sewing and look forward to hand sewing binding on quilts and what not. It’s a good activity while you’re watching a movie.

  145. 145
    jessica says:

    I am not a hand sewer. I would machine sew leaves together if I had to. But these hexagons are making me rethink my stance. Time to get out the thimble, I guess… I see a hexagon wristlet in my future.

    I haven’t tried making hexagons yet for the same reason you’re giving them away, but if I won these, I’d handsew some together and send them back to you in the form of a pillow!

  148. 148
    Ruth says:

    I would love to have them… it would actually be my first time seeing FMF in person. I’ve never tried hexagons before, so this would give me just the boost I need to get started trying it out. Maybe I could use them to decorates some hand towels for my kitchen.

  149. 149
    Meg says:

    Ooohhh, preeeettttyyy. ;0) I haven’t attempted them yet either, but those are so lovely. I would love to attempt a pillow or doll quilt with those!

    I just started doing Hexs and just finished a pillow for a swap on Flickr. I would love to take these and make a pillow for myself.. for once ;).. always in a swap and my hubby says.. aren’t you making one to keep….

    Fara says:

    Wow! Thanks for the chance to win these lovely hexagons. I have come to love hexes, and was thinking of one day doing a small project with them, perhaps a pillow, or using them as accents on a bag. I like hand sewing, but am not sure if I’d like basting hexes (I haven’t attempted to make any yet). Here is my chance to get my hands on some hexes, and the added bonous: they are made of FMF fabric!
    Have a nice flight back home :)

  152. 152
    Kimmer says:

    LOVE hexagons and LOVE FMF- what a great combination!
    Believe it or not, I actually bought hexagons from EBay a few years back and have slowly been sewing them together into flowers. The fabrics are nice, lots of silks and satins and some nice heavy solid black, but all in dark colors. I have been wishing for a hex project that is more upbeat and modern…
    Pick me!!! :)

    Anita says:

    I love hexagons, there are some really great projects using them. I have yet to make any but would love a chance to sew some together. I’ll be heading to England with my family at the end of the month – this might be a great project for the trip.

  154. 154
    MichelleB says:

    I love hexagons, and I love handwork. I was just thinking that I need to make some hexagons so that I can sew them up at swim meets – which have a lot of wait time. If I won some that were already made – well, how fabulous! I was even thinking about making some out of my FMF stash. I’m not sure what I would make. I always think “quilt” – but, if I were realistic, I think I would need to down grade that to pillow, or maybe table runner?

  155. 155
    Michelle M says:

    I haven’t tried Hexagons yet, but I’ve always wanted to! I love handsewing binding and cathedral windows. Its very relaxing for me. Thanks for a chance to win your hexs. They look awesome!

  156. 156
    Erin says:

    ZOMG! Ashley! Gaaah! Hexagons! Too much too handle. I started a hex quilt in October and have been slowly amassing and sewing and I love every part of it. These would look gorgeous with what I’ve done so far. What a great giveaway!

  157. 157
    Nathalie says:

    won’t absolutely know what to do with them until they are here and can speak to me. I would probably start out (and may finish) with the hexagons, but like you, would probably get bored and take the blocks apart and just piece them together somehow. Love the fabric! Love what you do and your blog! You are such inspiration.

  158. 158
    Jodie says:

    I have never owned any Flea Market Fancy, but always admire it. I really think it would be nice to make a tote back out of them to carry some other handwork in to my kids practices. I can not believe you are going to give them away, but I am excited at the chance to possible own some.

  159. 159
    Kara says:

    I like handsewing, but have never tried hexagons. I like the “sprinkling” of hexagons you did on one quilt, so I’d sprinkle these on a few pillows, or maybe a baby quilt. So cute!

  160. 160
    Susan says:

    Hand sewing is therapy without the therapist!! Your hexagons are beautiful and your honestly about not wanting to sew them up is absolutely inspiring and refreshing!! Thanks for the chuckle.

  161. 161
    Monet says:

    I love hexagons–they are fast to crochet if you don’t like sewing (and you do like crochet [?]). I would love to use them for a charity quilt for Margaret’s Hope Chest that I’m making for a seven-year-old girl’s birthday. I have been thinking that hexes would be perfect for a child’s quilt!

  162. 162
    Greta says:

    Really Ashley this is so nice of you. I haven’t tried hexagons yet but that is up next in the Old Red Barn Quilt Along group and I can’t wait. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while but have been to chicken to do it. So I’m thinking if I win I will start by making a hexagon pillow for one of my quilting heros. Humm, maybe I need to do that anyway.

  163. 163
    Judy says:

    I love the hexagons, and the fabric you chose. I would create a quilt for We Can, a woman’s charity where we live. I will also make you the front of a pillow. I like hand sewing at night. It’s therapeutic to sit and relax.

  164. 164
    jill says:

    I could use the practice on these! =D I’ve tried in the past and haven’t been as successful as I’d hoped. I think its definitely an acquired skill but I’m up for another try! They always look so pretty together.

    Melissa says:

    I have to love handsewing, because I sit in the car waiting for my kids at dance lessons, piano lessons, choir practice, play practice, tumbling, baseball, and 4-H clubs. I can’t figure out how to get the machine to fit, so hand sewing gives me something to do!

  167. 167
    Anya says:

    I would love hexagons out of that fabric! I’ve made a few of them myself and actually enjoyed sewing them together. Enough for a small wallhanging. Thanks for the chance!

  168. 168
    Christina says:

    Here is how we are a perfect match. I’m scared of MAKING hexagons, but not sewing them. I’ve been ogling the hexagon projects thinking “so cute, so CUTE!” and then dithering at the end of every night about whether I have the confidence to cut and iron and baste to achieve such a specific shape. But hand sewing I have got the ability for, and I’d love to use these to make a baby quilt for a friend who is adopting a little one right now.

    Also, happy airport sitting – go get some chocolate, okay?

    I would love to win these hexies.
    My first foray into quilting was going to be a hexagon project. I hated my fabrics & quickly abandoned the project. Now these hexies – I LOVE!

    Nicole says:

    I love the way they look…but I’m not into sewing by hand anymore. I made my first quilt that way and I’m not about to do it again! But I’d sooo love to get my hands on some FMF!

    Stephanie says:

    I could totally stand some hexagons. Sewing them together by hand would be perfect in front of the tv. I need a hand sewing project to work on during Project Runway.

    i would love the chance to win those lovely little hexies… they are all so sweet looking and i would love to try my handstitching… im sure it would take me a long time. have a safe trip home and no sitting on the tarmac for several hours

    Heidi T says:

    giving away hexagons? in fmf no less?? I would give them a good home; currently I am in need of a new hand project – I love hand sewing, it’s so portable :] my current obsession is pillows, so I can definitely see a great addition to my couch!

  174. 174

    I’d probably applique them to a table runner to “spring it up” a bit. :O) I love hand sewing!

  175. 175
    Monica says:

    Those hexagons are fantastic! You’ve done the intimidating (for me, anyway) part already, and I would get to do my favorite thing: hand sew. I like to stitch while I watch movies – very relaxing. These would probably end up in a little quilt.

  176. 176

    I love flea market fancy! I also love hexagons. I have a pile of them made with hello Betty that I am currently sewing together. I would love to have some smaller hexagons to sew together. In fact I am the opposite of you. I don’t like making them but I love sewing them together… Thanks for the opportunity.

    So so beautiful. I love to hand sew. My mom just found out she has breast cancer I would love to make her a cheery pillow to accompany her to her chemo sessions.

    Oh my gosh, I would love to make a pillow out of these! I’ve promised myself that I will take on hexagons after I finished some of my other projects..

    Felicity says:

    I’ve never tried them but I’m seeing some great hexies out there with gorgeous, modern fabrics. Definitely elevates them beyond grandma’s flower garden. I’d love to win these because I don’t mind hand sewing – it gives me something to do on the subway on the way to work!

  184. 184
    Beth Lehman says:

    They are lovely and I love to look at them but if I got them, I would undo your work to have the FMF squares!! I don’t think I’d know what to do with hexagons and I don’t even want to think about handsewing them. Binding a quilt is as much handwork as I want!

  185. 185
    Susan says:

    Oh Pick Me!! I love these fabrics and I’ve been doing quite a bit of hand sewing lately. I can take it with me and work on it while I wait (for kids to get out of school, at the doctor’s office, the DMV and so on) and it has surprised me how much I can accomplish with just a few minutes here and there throughout the day. I have been wanting to try hexagons, but I haven’t had the time all at once to cut a bunch. I hope you liked San Diego (my hometown) while you were here, too bad you are leaving just as the weather is getting nice!

  186. 186
    Leigh says:

    I love to handsew! I do it while watching TV with my hubby, too… and I’d probably make a pillow out of them, or see how I could work some into a quilt.

    I love hexagons! I If I win I think that I would make a pillow, or maybe a quilt depending on how many there are. The fabric is beautiful and I wouldn’t dare take apart all your hard work!

    Ellen Ban says:

    I’ve been wanting to try Hexies after seeing them all over blogland! I think I’d enjoy making them since I enjoyed hand piecing my first 4 or 5 quilts!Thanks for the chance to win & have a safe trip!

    Kym says:

    Firstly, fly home safe!

    Secondly – for the obvious reason, hexes put me in a hive state of mind. I feel the intense desire to start putting in my tomato plants, beat rugs outside for spring cleaning and hand stitch. I would love to use your FMF beauties, as I HATEHATEHATE the cutting, but looove hand work. Marriage made in heaven, no?

  191. 191
    Sami says:

    This is the Best. Giveaway. Ever! I love hexagons, and I love handsewing (in fact, I do not own a machine – everything I do is by hand). I would make a baby quilt for my niece with these.

    Kristin says:

    Oh I LOVE hexagons. I have a pile just waiting… I want to make a big quilt someday and think it will be a great project to take places when I need some handwork to keep me busy. This is an awesome giveaway, it’s to bad you don’t like hand stitching them, but thanks for sharing the wealth. ;)

    These are beautiful! The hand sewing is growing on me. The one thing I love about it is I can take it anywhere, I really enjoyed working on my in the car or in front of the TV :)

  195. 195

    I am in love! You have got to be the sweetest person ever. I’ve been stalking your blog for ages now and I think your work is just absolutely incredible. I’ve got a sewing project floating around in my mind to make a little flowering tree, with the flowers being single hexies. Nothing in this world would make cuter little flowers than FMF. And then it wouldn’t matter if they were a teensy bit wonky in a few places. Enjoy your airport time!

  196. 196
    Sonja says:

    Love the hexagons!! I don’t think I would have the patience to cut them all out! FMF would make a gorgeous pillow (or two)! CHEERS!!!

    i would love these – especially as they’re FMF!!
    i haven’t done any hexagons for years and now i’m thinking maybe i should start again!

    Amber says:

    I saw on someone’s blog they had a tutorial for machine-sewing the hexagons together…so if I won I’d look up that first :-) I love all the pillows people keep making with little hexagon flowers so I would probably use them for that…and I have my paper pieces that i bought still in their little bags – haven’t tried it yet….

  199. 199
    Liz says:

    I’ve never done hexagons, but I’m intrigued. And they’re so little and lovely! I may have to give them a shot when I take my machine in for (way-overdue) service. Anyways, I’d love ‘em, and even if I don’t find I can hack the hand-sewing, they’d still be cute appliqued onto something. Maybe a pillow?

  200. 200
    Amy K-P says:

    I’m a TOTAL beginner so I have done anything other than a basic 4-square patch. Would LOVE to see these used on a pillow or even on a paper arts project. Not sure but I sure do thing they’re pretty. LOL

    kelly says:

    I loved these pictures the first time you posted them — all of the colors together make me smile. I have the templates for sewing hexes ready, but haven’t yet started making my own yet. I’m trying to gear up to do a grandmother’s flower garden quilt and have been collecting bright fabrics (unfortunately too late to get the fmf prints…) and these would be a perfect addition. My hand sewing is usually limited to binding, but it’s one of my favorite parts of the process. Thanks for offering to share with others! I love your site.

  202. 202
    Jeannine says:

    I absolutely love hexagons. I find them so relaxing to sew together while I’m watching TV, waiting in the doctor’s office, at lunch, any time I can sit for more than 10 minutes at a time.

  203. 203
    Sara Ojard says:

    I’d love to use these hexagons for a pillow or a quilt for my soon-to-be nephew or niece.

    Tracy says:

    Well I hope you are suitably entertained during your airport stay! I love hexagons and have caught the bug like everyone else!! I made some to cover up a corner of my couch, somehow my cat thought they were scratching posts. The only problem is I’m tired of my fabrics and still have 2 more corners that need covering, your hexagons would do nicely! Here is a picture of my sad couch and the hexagon repair http://www.flickr.com/photos/34763554@N03/4312112170/

  205. 205
    Sarah M says:

    Wow – ton of comments – hope this is helping to pass the airport time. I have a litte bucket full of yoyos, but haven’t had a chance to try any hexes yet. My idea would be to put these together in one large hexagon, because that would look really pretty on my round dining room table. Safe travels!

  206. 206

    I still have a lot of hand sewing going on these days with the knees out of commission. The more I do, the more I like it. In truth though, I’ve not though to tackle hexagons yet.
    Safe journey.

  207. 207
    Melanie says:

    These hexies are screaming my name! I just started a charm hexagon piece-along on my blog. I would LOVE to sew these babies together into a pillow. I enjoy hand sewing and I’m trying to sew them together as I go so I don’t end up with 1,100+ hexagons to sew together. Fingers crossed!

  208. 208
    Morgan says:

    Ooooh! Fun! I love small groupings of hexagons on a white background… That’s what I’d do with them if I won. I don’t think I have the patience to sew together so many to make a huge quilt, either!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  209. 209
    Kelly says:

    OMGoodness, aren’t your little FMF hexes popular? I’d love to give your gorgeous hexes a good home. I’d use them to make a couple of cushions that can sit on the couch with my FMF quilt. I haven’t made the quilt yet, still trying to decide on the best pattern to showcase the FMF, it’s such a precious commodity.

    I enjoy handstitching, especially in the evening when watching tele, or when I’m waiting for the kids at basketball training.

    Thanks so much for this lovely giveaway.

    Kelly :-)

  210. 210
    LeeAnn says:

    I will totally geek out if I win these and make a quilt that uses these hexagons to create carbon based molecules and applique them on a solid white quilt backing. A whole new meaning to the traditional grandmothers garden hexagon quilt! It would be a plant nutrient quilt! I could make nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc, copper… This is an idea that’s been in my idea book forever, but I never tried to make little hexagons. This could get the project started!

  211. 211
    Amy says:

    I adore hand sewing, and have plenty of time waiting for my kindergartner to be released from the jail/school. (If I don’t park at least 20 minutes early I can’t park at the school and have to circle, so I really do have time in my car every single day.) If I won (fingers crossed) I would just keep plugging away until I had all the hexes together into the largest size quilt top I could! Thank you for the giveaway – very generous!

  212. 212

    Aditi says:

    That’s so funny that you’ve now abandoned the hexes because you don’t like sewing them together! I’m the opposite – I’d rather sew them together! If I won them, I’d totally admire them for weeks and agonise over JUST the right project. I imagine ultimately they’d end up in cushion covers or perhaps on a bag…

  216. 216
    Sally says:

    I’ve never tried a hexagon quilt or any such thing but I’ve always wanted to. How fun would it be to make something from the flea market fancy fabrics.

    Chanda says:

    I love them! I’ve never made anything with hexagons, though I love the look of projects done with them. I have to tell you, though, that I spy a print in your stack that I’ve been dying to get my hands on!! Little leaves on green. Can’t. find. it. anywhere. Why do I fall in love with fabric I can’t find? Maybe I should stop looking at quilting blogs and getting “stash envy”?!?! Nah…this is too much fun!

  218. 218
    Amber H. says:

    You know, I haven’t actually sat down yet to make any hexagons, because like I said, I had a project that I wanted to finish first before I picked up another one -and it completed beautifully if I say so myself- and now I’m probably free to make hexagons.

    I actually enjoy handsewing; I’ve been doing it since I was about 5 or 6. Speaking of traveling, we’re actually about to take a road trip from Utah to Georgia to Virginia, and I’ll need something to keep my hands busy.. my husband is doing all the driving and if I have sewing to keep me awake and busy, I’ll be able to converse with my husband and keep him from getting too crazy bored!

    Not sure what I’d make with these if I had them, but I’ll be sure to think of something! Maybe a bag of some type…

    PS: I’m that crazy nut who read your entire blog in two nights. Cuz I’m cool like that.

    I bought templates for Grandmother’s Flowerpatch years ago but never got around to try them. These hexagons would definitely get me going!

  221. 221

    I love them! I am going to have a lot of hand sewing time on my hands, since I’ll have a newborn around here in a few days. I’d love to make her a little hexagon pillow for her bed. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Ooooh, so pretty! I would so make a pillow!

    Nykhe says:

    I love the hexagons! I Haven’t tried making any yet…I’m not much for hand sewing…but I’d love to give it a whirl. A pillow would be awesome…or a cute baby quilt for my new little nephew. oOoh the possibilities!

  225. 225
    Sarah says:

    These are so lovely and you are so generous! I actually enjoy the whole hexagon sewing process, and would probably make a pillow, or wall hanging, or table runner, or bag…the possibilities are enless. It’s good to have something in my hands while watching tv, especially when husband and son are watching sports and I’d like to be with them, but don’t really care about the game. They like it better than if I machine sew…go figure!

    Elizabeth says:

    I made myself a grandmother’s flower garden quilt (queen size) a few years back. I love it dearly but never use it because I don’t have any other bedding that matches it. I would love some hexagons to get me started on some pillow shams. Maybe they’ll inspire me to get that quilt out of the closet and onto a bed!

  228. 228
    Laurie says:

    I haven’t tried making them yet, but I’d love to give them a try and make a pillow out of them. They look so pretty!

  229. 229

    My best friend, who is probably in the final days of her life (grrrrrr to cancer…), got me started on hexagons. So I started making hexes out of civil war reproduction fabric. Not my style. I enjoy the process, not the fabric. so I’m ready to move on to happier fabric. This would be a good start.

  230. 230
    marci manglitz says:

    I adore hexagons. They are honeycombs, one of nature’s strongest shapes.
    I would make my first quilted project with these– probably make a table topper/runner with them. I’m a noob!

  231. 231
    Penny g says:

    I’ve never tried sewing hexagons or sewing with them, but I have hexagon flower garden quilt made by my grandmother in the 30s or 40s. Her quilting is what inspired me to try and I have yet to make anything like her projects. If I won them it would be serendipity and it would be telling me to try a quilt like grandma used to make.

  232. 232
    Erin says:

    I too have admired hexagons, but have been a little daunted. For me it’s the actual making of the hexagons as opposed to the hand stitching that kept me from playing with them. I am more comfortable with hand stitching and as I am often without electricity where I live, I would love to have yours for a new hand stitching project – probably a pillow given what I’ve heard from others about hexagons – for when I can’t use my sewing machine.

  233. 233
    Luba Kale says:

    Thanks for such a great giveaway. Hexagons are a great portable
    project. I too,(surprise),would make a pillow top especially with the infamous FMF fabrics. Happy journey.

    Jennifer says:

    I started making hexagons last week and I love them! They are so pretty. And guess what? I like stitching them together better than I like basting them to the paper! ;) I have made some really cute hexy flowers that I have been embellishing my daughter’s shirts with. I think that embellishing is great for instant gratification but as a hand-piecer and hand-quilter, I also want to make a bigger project like pillows or even a quilt.

    Jennifer :)

    Deb C. says:

    Well Ashley, those are just too cute to let fall to the wayside. I admit, I did start a hexagon project a couple years ago but mine was in some boring old floral fabrics I had hoped would look prettier in a hexagon quilt. But it did not. Still looked like boring old fabrics. Sooo, I would love to give it another try–something smaller and more managable perhaps–like a wall hanging for my office, in more fresh modern fabrics like Flea Market Fancy.

  236. 236
    Krista says:

    I am so excited about your giveaway! You really have no idea! When I saw your blog the other day about the hexagons – I was in love – I was thinking about the things I could make and how fun it would be.. I really want to make some new pillows for the living room. I currently am more of a knitter, but have wanted a new hobby and hand-sewing would be perfect!

  237. 237
    Lisa says:

    Hand sewing hexagons is a perfect craft for me as I have three kids at home and I can pick up a project on the go while supervising them play. And now with spring on it’s way here in Montreal, up the road from you, I can chuck them out into the garden.. (finally) and sun myself doing sewing from the chair.

  238. 238

    Are you kidding me! I would love these =) I haven’t tried hexagons yet, but I know I will someday. I do like hand-sewing, its very relaxing. And I have a lot of time just sitting at work right now so I could use a new project.

  239. 239

    Jill Smith says:

    So fun! I’ve never sewed with hexagons before, but this is just the right time to start! I’d probably make a quilt (and if there are enough left over) a matching doll quilt for my daughter. Thanks for being so generous!

  242. 242
    Bo Timm says:

    I think of hexagons like running, I should but i don’t want to do the prep work, it would be fun to have them ready for the easy part and your color and fabric choice is impeccable as always

    Jen says:

    I can’t stop with Hexs. In fact I’m making a couch quilt for my husband out of hand sewn hexs inspired by your purple half hex quilt.

    I know I’m totally crazy but I love the hand sewing…

    I’d gladly take yours!

  244. 244
    Mary Claire says:

    Oh man, this is really exciting! I really think I’d sew sometogether and applique them on some of that kona coal I’ve been dying to try (it looks so lovely on your quilts) and use it as the back of a quilt. You are a great enabler; love your site!

    Brenda says:

    I LOVE the hexagons. I haven’t tried them yet (currently working on 4 other quilts in differing stages … isn’t it always like that!), but I did print the template and instructions. This would be a great start to (yet another) new quilt! Thanks!

    YES Absolutley , I never got to have that wonderful fabric . It was gone by the time I knew it existed and I like Hexagons , I have a stack as well but not enough to make a quilt. Thank you…Izzy

    you’ve got more than 200 comments already! but I’m gonna try to put in my name anyway. I’ve done some hexagon stitching but I don’t know what to do with them yet. they are already sewn together so maybe they’ll become a teeny tiny doll quilt? you hexies will surely be added to mine :)

    teresa says:

    oh hexagons… i started making them (handcut paper templates too) after reading your post about them. i’ve been fissling with the 1 inchers. it’s pretty addicitive! i have some (probably insane) vision of a rad hex quilt that will likely end up a pillow or maybe sprinkling a few on some placemats?? they’re so fun!

    krissy says:

    Beautiful! And you have flea market fancy left? Lucky! I actually love to handsew for about a half hour in the morning and a half hour in the afternoon after work… helps to both start the day and end it on a relaxing note, so I’d love to whip these into a little quilt. Thanks! Lovely!

  252. 252
    Jenny Lecato says:

    I love them- a “mod” patch for my girls jeans, an added fun spot on a little girls dress ( which I am hoping in 6 days I can say the word grandaughter as we won’t know the sex until birth :)) A fun spot on a patchwork purse or in a tablerunner. I may gravitate towards a pillow next (the dogs tend to destroy those though)I would greatly enjoy these! BTW- your site is my go to “relaxer” of the day- thank you!

    Hi Ashley, I am inspired by your hexagons. I have never made any but I am not afraid of hand sewing and I know I could make something really fun with these. Besides that, I just admire your work and would love to have something you made.

    Chandra says:

    I have been falling for hexagon quilts and would love a stash of FMF hexagons. The thought of handsewing sounds wonderful as I could sew outside in the beautiful spring weather (nearly 60 degrees in Chicago!) I can’t decide if I would make a quilt or a pillow…

    Ashley, I hope you had a great time in California. It was great meeting you at the LAMQG meeting. I would love to win your hexagons, they’re lovely. I have never made them myself, but I would love to make some pillows with them. I’m crossing my fingers.

  259. 259
    Liz says:

    I love making hexagons! I just haven’t gotten enough made yet to make what I want. A tote bag- yes, I’m crazy enough to think I won’t want to gouge my eyeballs out by time I’ve sewn enough together to make a decent sized tote bag

  260. 260
    Erin says:

    I love these hexagons. I have never used hexagons in a project, but I’ve recently been drawn to patchwork items using small pieces. I’ve been looking everywhere for the perfect fabric for some pillows to put in my guest room and haven’t found it – but I’ve been in love with the Flea Market Fancy line since I first saw it on another quilters blog. I’m thinking that these would be made in the most splendid throw pillows for my guest room which is currently home to a mish mash of vintage quilts so I think these would be PERFECT.

  261. 261
    Kelly O. says:

    I have been drooling at your hexagon making and have to admit I do love me a bit of the hexagon.
    I’ve actually kind of gone in cycles of loving the handsewing and then not so much. I think I’m back on the bandwagon and these would make a lovely doll blanket for my sweet girl’s easter basket!

    I would love them. I actually really like handsewing and after a long hiatus, I recently started again by doing 1″ hexes. I made a flower that I plan to patch up a pair of jeans with. The portability and low-tech-ness of handsewing keeps me coming back.

    oh what a great giveaway!!!!!

    Hexagons are great. I am now working on a big colourscircle with hexagons from 2cm (about 4/5 inch) and thats quit small.
    I love sewing them together because its an easy thing to do everywhere. Especialy with the coming springweather, kids playing outside and i can sit and watch them and meanwhile doing some nice handsewing to hexies.
    I think i am going to make a nice quilt for my daughter. she thinks quilts are super and love to play with it. (alle her dolls have to sleep unther it)

    Crystal says:

    I love those little hexagons and of course, they are even better in FMF! I think I would make pillows for my living room. I have never made hexagons or sewed them, but I would be willing to give it a shot. If all else fails, I think I could recruit my grandma to sew me something with them :) That’s what Grandma’s are for, you know!

    Phosporelated says:

    Your hexagons are so beautiful I’ve decided to try making some of my own! Thanks for inspiring me! I would make a doll quilt or (if I had the patience) even a lap quilt with those and more hexagons.

  267. 267
    Michelle says:

    Pick me! Pick me! I love sewing these things! I’m almost done with my first hexagon quilt and I was already planning to make another one. I promise to send you photos of the finished goods if I win! Please?!

  268. 268

    I was visting my parents this past weekend and spent some time looking at an old quilt that was made around the 1940′s by my great aunts and great-grandmother…and it was all handsewn tiny hexagons cut from dresses that my grandmother wore when she was a little girl. It was definitely inspiration for me to try some hexagons! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    I am currently sitting in the airport in Pensacola Florida so i feel your pain, but I have been meaning to try the whole hexagon hand sewing thing, and was planning on bringing them on the FL vacation that I just finished and decided not to. I think that most hexagon projects turn out to be super cute but the hand sewing part is a little daunting. I always thought that people machine sewed them, until about two weeks ago when I saw your post about them and looked at some other links. Haha boy was I surprised!

  270. 270
    Abby says:

    I am just finishing a quilt made entirely of hexagons, it is a great vacation activity if we are driving somewhere, so it’s kind of special because it reminds me of the places that we’ve been! I would love to start another with your lovely hexagons! Thanks for the give away!

    Rhonda says:

    Oh my gosh, are you serious?? I love the little hexagons and have started an insane project of my own (you can see the chronicle of the thousands of little hexes (in more neutral colours) on my blog at http://jediknits.blogspot.com/search/label/ingalls ) Of course, I am not going to start sewing my own hexagons together until I have them all stitched and ironed and ready. But yours…? I love hand sewing and hand quilting, and if I had my hands on those gorgeous little hexagons of yours, I promise I would make something worthy of them. At the very least, a bright and summery pillow, but maybe even a decorative element on a skirt, or a bag, or… or…

  272. 272
    Brenis says:

    Ashley, I don’t like making them. BUT I LOVE hand sewing, and would be happy to sew these together for you and send them back! And that way you could have your hexi pillow!! :)

    Well my last message got cut off. I would be happy to sew these together for you so you can have your hexi pillow!

    Love them! I also have a stack of hex’s that I haven’t done anything with .. maybe if I had yours to add I’d have enough to make a pillow or small quilt!

    duff says:

    I’d like to use them as part of an art quilt that I will donate to Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (to auction). Many people who donate incorporate symbolism in their quilts. I think it would be nice to sew the hexagons together to symbolize the many different colored memories each of us has, but then leave some areas “missing” to symbolize the lost memories of Alzheimer’s sufferers.

  277. 277
    Emily says:

    Wow, I would LOVE to have some hexagons! Many years ago I helped my mom hand sew hexagons for a Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt. I’m a huge fan of hand sewing and I’ve been thinking about making some kind of a table runner with little hexagons. I hope I win! Thanks so much!

    yvette says:

    Boy, I don’t mind handsewing at all. I think making the hexagons is the worst part!! Actually, I’ve never used them before because I’m totally put off making the hexagons. I think I would sew some to a child’s Tshirt as a cool feature! I’d also love to incorporate some hexagons into a small quilt.

  280. 280
    Jessica C says:

    I love hexagons. Clearly, I’m not the only one. = ) I recently saw a quilt at the Dallas Quilt Show that used hexagon flowers appliqued on the border of a pieced quilt. I’m thinking along those lines. I love grandmother’s flower garden quilts, though, too. I love the traditional patterns in modern fabrics. FMF would be gorgeous, of course! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

  281. 281
    Erica Ferguson says:

    I love hexagons. I have a wonderful little Japanese book for hand sewing all sorts of wonderful little hexagon projects. I could see these as a cute little wallet and bag to match! What I love about them is they are so portable. I sometimes get tired of knitting on the go and want something interesting to do. Making hexagons fits this need quite nicely!

  282. 282
    Kristen Malone says:

    WOW, there are a lot of hexagon fanatics!! Who knew?? I haven’t tried to make my own, but I do LOVE yours and I enjoy hand sewing (mostly)…. I’m thinking along the lines of throw pillows to revamp our bedroom…pretty please pick me!

    rebecca says:

    I would love to be considered for the hexagons. I am actually currently working on a hexagon quilt that may take me years and I would love to include these wonderful fabrics. I too am not very patient when it comes to hand sewing but at times I feel like it and the hexagon project is just the thing to keep by the TV in case I get ‘in the mood’.

    Julia says:

    Love the fabrics! I have been wanting to do a hexagon quilt or pillow for the longest time but I don’t have the patience to cut those out. I think I would have fun hand sewing while I watch tv. New project here I come!

  286. 286
    Anna F. says:

    Oh yeah! Love the little hexies! I have done two hexagon quilts already, both small because I know what you mean about time consuming, but they are so cute when finished. I just sent my last one off for the doll quilt swap on flickr, made out of Heather Ross mendocino (sp??)
    I really liked it, was hard to part with it:( So these in the flea market might make up for my sadness, hehe, Thanks for the chance to win them!

  287. 287
    Tracy says:

    I love hexies! I have some in a bag that goes everywhere with me and when I find myself having to wait, Dr office, airport :) I pull out my hexies and start stitching. Time just flies when I’m stitching and I never have enough time waiting when I have my hexies. I would love to add your hexies to mine and watch my project grow!

    Thanks for the chance!

    Tracy says:

    So it’s not just me who has ‘brilliant’ideas and spends way to much time on a project before realising that the idea is so much more interesting than the work involved. Your fabric choices are always so lovely, I’m sure they’d be at home here in the UK despite the lack of sunshine.

  289. 289
    Chancy says:

    I would love those hexagons, but I would probably use them as small squares of FMF. The thought of all that hand sewing gives me the hibbie-jibbies.

    Rachelle says:

    Oh those are so cute. I love the fabrics. I am not sure what I would make but it seems like a really fun challenge. My aunt has a fabulous quilt incorporating hexagons. Maybe I could take some inspiration from that. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Lisa Michelle says:

    Soooo cute! I have been sewing for a number of years but just recently started quilting. To be honest I always thought it a grandma thing to do. Well, I am not even a mother yet and I love quilting but it has been a big learning curve. I too have admired many hexy projects online but I am just not there in my skill set to make them. BUT…I could sew them together! In fact I could sew them together for you… a pillow cover maybe? Just a thought. I hope your travels are safe.

    Cheers,
    Lisa Michelle

    How amazing!! I love hexagons. I have started a little hexagon quilt for my niece, but it is on a hiatus right now. It is so fun to handsew the pieces, but I got a little tired. I think the rememdy is to make pillows, of course, PILLOWS!! That is what I would make. Love your blog, it has been a wonderful source of inspiration!!

    OMG, what a great give away!! It’s so generous of you to give these away! Thanks!
    I love FMF (of course) and I love hexagons, I’ve only tried machinepiecing them, and been wanting to try out handstitching them for a long time. These would really send me of too a flying start :-)

    Allison S. says:

    I am wanting to try them…..would you recommend cutting out paper shapes yourself?

    Crystal says:

    This is such a cool giveaway! I’d love to win your hexagons! I used to hate sewing them together too but now that I use the ladder stitch I’m in love with it! In love, I tell you! The part I mostly dislike is making the hexagons…because I’m impatient and I just want to have them to sew together already! So, you know, they’d be well loved and well used at my house.

  298. 298
    Gina says:

    How funny. I’m obsessed with hexes but the bit I lose patience with is the basting! I love the sewing together. Sounds like we’re the perfect team :)

  299. 299
    Jennifer B. says:

    I honestly haven’t worked with hexagons before. I would most likely make some ‘practice’ ones before I attempted anything with these. I think these would end up being a beautiful pillow, or a centerpiece for my dining table.

  300. 300
    Jenna Z says:

    I’ve never made any hexagons. I make yoyos every once in a while for smaller projects like table runners. Hex’s just seem REALLY fidgety to me. But lucky for me, you already did he fidgety part! I’d sew these up into a spring pillow sham or two for my sofa!

  301. 301
    Lauren says:

    I’ve never made any, but they are awfully pretty. My patience for hand sewing isn’t too great, but I would make an exception to add some of these beauties to my current projects. Muchas gracias!

  302. 302
    Alexis says:

    I keep wanting to try hexes but I loose patience for cutting and basting all the pieces, so winning these would make an ideal handsewing project for me! I’m inspired by a hexagon purse that I borrowed from a friend, all made out of silk ties. It’s lovely, and I think a FMF version would be so springy and fresh. Thanks for the chance to enter such a great & generous giveaway!

  303. 303
    Heather says:

    Tell me you’re not kidding us!! You’re really going to pay it forward to some lucky soul? Maybe even me? If you do, I promise to pay forward with a batch of yoyo’s one day when I have my collection built up.

    I prefer hand sewing to machine sewing. I always end up “just slightly off” with machine sewing whereas I have so much more control with hand sewing. So hand sewing it is. I had been admiring your string of hexagons and was contemplating starting some.

    Now … what would I do with yours if I were so lucky? First, I know I would spend much joyous time laying them out and making plans. And then, I would happily hand stitch them together while sitting in a sun beam on my lunch break at works. Another colleague hand quilts at the same time, so it would be a great companion project.

    You just know I’ll be dreaming hexoganally tonight! Oh, please!!

    Sam says:

    Of course I would love these! Haven’t tried hexagons yet, but I love handsewing. It’a always much more relaxing and leisurly. i don’t feel like I’m on any kind of deadline.

    Raven says:

    As you, I have no patience for hand sewing, but I am determined to change my mind after finding the Natalie Chanin books. Also, my MIL made a hand sewn hex quilt, so I have advice nearby if I get stuck.
    And I have zero pieces of FMF. Showed up to the party late….. :)

    Leanne says:

    I always read your blog I love your quilts but never leave a comment but I love Hexagons they are great to do when you are in the car(only when your not driving I might add). I have a lovely little sewing bag made out of them.

  308. 308
    Jennifer D Clark says:

    I love your work. You have been inspiring me with your designs to dive back into quilting. This last week I have been tossing around the idea of these great hexagons for a 1st birthday quilt for me little bambino. Your little hexegons would be a great addition to his quilt. By the way i love how you often us white in your quilting.

  309. 309
    SongBird says:

    I saw your hexes and started my own – even though I really didn’t have time for it. I’ve made some in 1″ and down to 1/4″ (I figure, where’s the challenge in big, right?) and I’m totally in love.

    I don’t mind the hand sewing – I bring some along with me in my purse and just do some quick stitches . In fact, I end up wishing I had more time, so I could sew just-one-more…

    How generous of you to give away those gorgeous hexagons! And after all that handwork too! I have not made any hexagons although I bought a package of the paper shapes. I have found that recently I am pulling out hand sewing projects to work on while sitting with the family watching TV.

    I would never say no to hexs already peiced! These guys are the same as my Liberty ones so I would love to add them to my collection!!

    I love hexagon stitching! It’s always nice to have some hand stitching in my bag in case I have to wait anywhere, and I have a hand pieced hexagon quilt almost finished.

    Carol Macy says:

    OMG I can’t believe how many responses there are. And I can’t believe you are giving yours away. Yes I do remember those hexagons. You were the one who got me tempted to try them. I just started hand sewing mine together. But I enjoy hand sewing as time spent watching kids sports, tv, watching my husband clean up the kitchen….. love Flea Market Fancy but new to quilting so my luck is out with finding any…

  317. 317
    Laurel H. says:

    Now, I have to be honest; I am not certain that I’d actually hand sew hexagons together. But I would LOVE to finally own a wee bit of FMF, in which case I’d remove the basting stitches, and use these in pieced blocks, making sure not to waste an inch. :) Thanks!

    I love hexagons and FMF and would be over the moon to win your extremely generous giveaway. I even like sewing hexagons together. I’d use them in an old fashioned scrappy hexagon quilt – nothing fancy – with fabric from my own stash.

    Tonya says:

    I would love some hexagons. I haven’t tried them yet, but I love looking at all the ones that are around. I really want to try, because I love the shape. I have a duvet cover on my bed with hexagons in the fabric. So one day I would like to make a quilt to go with it. But, I am just not there yet. These would be great, and I would totally use them to make a quilt for myself. I absolutely loved the one you made with the half hexagon template.

    mmmmmmmmmm… purrrdy!
    i’ve also recently become interested in hexagons. but i have the opposite problem. not much patience when it comes to cutting and preping fabrics. lots of patience for sewing though.
    i’m hoping to soon make a hexagon quilt. i’m thinking lots of gorgeous grey sashing and random “blobs” of hexagons. some bigger some smaller. just a few gatherings of hexagons randomly scattered across the quilt to really make the fabrics pop.

    gorgeous photographs btw. i love, love, love your photography.

    I’ve never made a hexagon quilt but like you have always really admired them!! This would be the perfect project for me because I recently found out that I am pregnant and don’t have the patience to sit at the sewing machine for any length of time right now – I’d much rather be on my comfy bed or couch and this is definitely a project that would travel well to all those doctor appointments that seem to have the longest wait times!

    BirthdayGinny says:

    I was inspired by the first hex post and raced to print several pages of hexagons and cut scraps to the appropriate size so I’d have some hand sewing to do at sew days with my friends. I love to see what they are doing and we always laugh up a storm, but I don’t enjoy sewing in a group. The hexagons were just the ticket with perfect timing. Yours would be happy here with the eight little orphans I made while waiting in the garden store parking lot for my neighbor to find the perfect mulch. They acted as therapy. I love all the possibilities that turn scraps into treasures…

  329. 329
    Jenny G. says:

    I would just love to have these! I have been working on 2 small hexie projects- they were great to have while the Olympics were on. One just needs the hand quilting and it’s done- and the other still needs the ‘flowers’ sewn together. And I am planning on cutting some fabric this weekend for another hex project with 3 inch hexes, to take on my plane ride next week. Your hexes would make a lovely pillow top or dolly quilt. I started making hexes about a year ago, and i just can’t get enough of them! Thanks so much for sharing these!

    Munaiba says:

    These are so pretty Ashley. Years ago when I was 17 I started a hexagon quilt but didn’t know how to do it. So I sewed, by hand, in backstitch! It took me 30 odd years and then I had a queen size top and didn’t know what to do with it and how to turn it into a quilt so I gave it away to a thrift shop. Now I know how to do it and would love to have another go at a hexagon quilt – whatever the size. As they say in a popular ad here in Australia “Pick me, pick me!” pleeeeeease. lol
    You poor thing sitting in an airport. I hope I’ve at least made you smile. I love your blog and look forward to each post. I also like your photography. You manage to really capture the character of your quilts. I’d really be interested if you gave a blog tutorial on how to photograph quilts. I have made some nice ones but the photos I take just don’t do them justice.
    Thanks

  331. 331
    Kellie says:

    ooooh yummy! If they fit with the pile of hexs I already have made up then they will eventually end up in a quilt. If not, then i would make them into pillows or a table runner.

    Selina says:

    My Mum just gifted us a brown couch. I am not usually a fan of brown and am really struggling to match some pillows and a quilt to it! These hexagons would completely rock! They’d be colorful without making it more drab. Ugh. ;)
    I love hexagons. On my blog you can see I’ve started a red/pink and blue quilt out of them.

  333. 333
    Lynn Bluebaum says:

    Hi! My heart leaped when I opened your blog and saw that you’re giving alway your gorgeous group of hexagons! I’ve been considering making a hexagon quilt after seeing your lovely ‘Sprinkling of Hexagons’. Today I’m specifically looking for design ideas to make a quilt for a my nieces’s high school graduation in June. Your Sprinkling and Bento Boxes are 2 favs both for their design and colors. She has most of those colors in her room so know she would like them. Thanks for the giveaway. Wishing you a totally uneventful trip home—or at least unpleasant eventless! In stitches, Lynn B.

    Sarah says:

    I just went to my first quilt retreat and there was a very nice little woman there who was hand piecing a hexagon quilt. She told me it was her life long dream to hand piece a quilt before she died and she sat down with me for about 30 min showing me how to make and sew together hexagon pieces. I don’t know that I’m as brave as her, but since you have done half the work, I think I could finish it up, so if you want to send them my way…we’ll see what happens :)

  337. 337
    Jo says:

    I’ve just gotten into hand sewn hexies and I think I’d like to tackle a quilt – but maybe a pillow cover is more realistic ;) A very generous giveaway, given the scarcity of FMF.

  338. 338
    Audrie says:

    I can’t believe you’d give these away! I’ve not tried making them… they’re on the list but other things seem to get in the way. I’ve always liked the look of hexes on a pillow or placemat, or even a wall hanging.

  339. 339
    Sarah M says:

    I love the hexagons but also don’t think I’d have the patience to handsew them. I’ve never tried. If I won them I’d use them to embellish a pillow as applique, and maybe and handbag or two, and then open up the rest for the FMF fabric!!

    Nicole says:

    These are beautiful! I love Flea Market Fancy but sadly I had just started sewing and never bought very much. We’re moving soon and these seem like they’d go great in a kitchen…maybe some hex’d cafe curtains, or a table runner.

  342. 342
    abbie says:

    Well, we are opposites – I dream of a hexagon “something”, but don’t have the patience to sit and sew up the hexagons. I wouldn’t mind piecing them together and seeing the beautiful “something” coming together…but to sit and cut the paper…sew the fabric to the paper…ugh! I’d probably make a pillow or a small quilt to hang on the wall. Thanks for doing the hard part for us!

  343. 343
    Elizabeth says:

    I am obsessed with hand-sewn hexagons! I made my nephew a hexagon quilt and have been itching to sew more since I completed the project! I am thinking about working on coasters, placemats or another quilt. I would love being able to make something with such beautiful FMF fabric as well. What a great giveaway-thank you!

  344. 344

    I have never made anything with hexagons, but I love hand-sewing, so portable! Needle turn Applique is my hand-sewing of choice, it feels similar to hand-sewing down binding.

    I would be very happy to give the hexes a go, if I won them, how lovely!

    I love the handsewing more than the making of the hexagons! Also, I never got me any FMF…heavy sigh.

    oh – I would love them!!!! AND – if you pick me, I’ll make you a pillow ~ how’s that? :-)

    Tam says:

    Wow! What a response! I love sewing hexagons together and as I sit here 6 days overdue with bubba#5 I think I would make a baby quilt…what a shame you can’t use them. If I’m not lucky enough hopefully they’ll go to a good home:)

    Lisa says:

    I love your hexagons, but my friend Kelly would love them even more – she is obsessed with Flea Market Fancy and with hexagons. If I win they become an immediate gift for Kelly, no questions asked!

    Corky says:

    I would love to win these! Wowzer! I started a Grandmother’s Flower Garden years ago with cheap/thin floral calicos then took it back out a while ago to finish, using better fabric, but this time I bought the papers hex shapes and the hexagons came out a wee bit larger (not a good thing) so I now have two UF Grandmother’s Flower Garden rosette sets. Recently I have made some larger ones. I love hand sewing plus it lets me watch TV with my hubby and keeps my hands busy so I don’t ‘graze’ all evening. That’s a good thing.

  353. 353

    Mmmm, I’m not for handsewing either. But I have an idea for them (maybe you can save a few for yourself and do the same?
    Shortly after I saw your postcard quilt (which I loved immediately) I ran across a book about…the revival of the art of “tile quilting”, or something like that. Strange, because there isn’t any info about this art online that I could find…but it was exactly like your quilt inspiration! Appliqueing colored fabrics on to a white background with grout-like wonky spaces in between.
    Anyway, I’d really love to do that (by machine!! with a small straight stitch around the edges) with these hexagons. Maybe having them really tightly packed in one corner and slowly spreading farther out through the quilt?

  354. 354
    Catherine says:

    Yes please I would love to win your FMF hexagons. I like to do a bit of handsewing while watching tv in the evenings and depending on how maany there is I would make them up in a pillow or two. I’m making a hexagon pincushion at the moment so maybe one of those as a thank you gift.

  355. 355
    holdyourspin says:

    Well, I suspect it’s a bit silly to be adding my name when I’m person 300ish :D But were I to win, I’d probably make some sort of wall art out of them. I’ve lived in this house just a month shy of two years and still haven’t hung anything on the walls, but I recently bought some 12×12 canvases to do some quilt block wall hangings for my bedroom, so hexagons would be an interesting way to do up a couple of them.

  356. 356
    Laurie says:

    OMG I can’t believe you are giving them away they are gorgeous I have been admiring them on your blog. When I saw your post I printed the paper and started making them because yours were so gorgeous. I missed out on Flea Market Fancy and I just love it. I love how they look but I am very slow at hand sewing but I like doing it for a while I need to learn patience. I hand cut my paper too and they seem to be coming together well I love them I am not sure what I am making yet but I am pretty sure it will never be a queen size quilt because the speed that I hand sew usually one cluster of seven in the evening while I am watching tv with my 2 1/2 yr old grandson, it would probably take my lifetime. I will continue until I get tired of making them and see what I can put together. Maybe a throw or maybe a wallhanging so I can just stare at them.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway and I am going to keep my fingers crossed. Flea Market Fancy and Hexies what could be better than that.

  357. 357

    Oh, how I’d love to win those hexagons! I’ve made a doll quilt out of the 1/2″ hexagons, and would love to try something out of the larger ones, and the FMF fabric is a huge bonus! Hope that you have safe travels today!

  358. 358
    jodie says:

    Please, please , please! I love to stitch hexagons…you’ve done the part I don’t like. I would love these to make a pillow! Thank you, thank you!

    Rachel B. says:

    I love the hexagons. I have never tried to make any myself it is something I think of doing often. I have a 2 day train trip this summer and piecing these together might be a fun activity. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Kelly Meanix says:

    Oh my I am like 301 on the list and probably have no chance. I would love to win them as I love FMF fabric and have started making hexagons, my friends think I am crazy. I love hand work, mostly applique but this has a very soothing quality, I can’t really explain it!I very much enjoy stitching my hexie and turning it over to see what part of the fabric I captured!

  361. 361
    Carrie F says:

    I was admiring your hexes. I can’t believe you did all that work to just give away! I love to do handwork, and was thinking hexes would be a good project.

    Pam says:

    These are great! I’ve been hand sewing hexagons for several months to make a queen size quilt. They are great to take anywhere. I would love to have these. They’d be great for a wall-hanging or to add to my bunch of hexies.

  363. 363
    Sherry says:

    Hah – i really don’t like the cutting and basting part but I do love to handsew. I’ll cut you a deal – you split them in half and take a photo of the layout – I will sew them together and send them back to you. Then I will copy your layout with mine !! That way I get a doll quilt/pillow with your colour sense an I can stop drooling on my screen.

  364. 364
    Daniela says:

    I am new to quilting and just love the designs I’ve seen done with hexagons! I like the handsewing but only in spurts and I need to take a break. Can’t wait to try my hand on these!

    Alecia says:

    See, my mom-in-law and I aren’t particularly close. I took her baby boy from her when we got married and ever since it’s been kind of strained . . . but there was this really cool thing that happened between us last May when we were visiting for Memorial day: she broke out a box of my husband’s things from growing up. When my husband was in 8th grade, their home burnt down and she was only able to save a few things after that. But, in this crazy box of odds and ends was the hexagon quilt that she had made during the few years it took for her to finally conceive Chris—the one she was able to carry him home in. It was such a sweet quilt and such a sweet, tender moment between us because the difficulty she had having children is what I am now going through. Well, it’s now March and even though I vowed to begin my own hand-pieced, miniature hexagon quilt last May . . . I haven’t done it. So, I would love to have this head-start on a project that will mean so much to me. :)

  366. 366
    Gretchen says:

    I’ve just recently jumped on the hex revival bandwagon. i’m having a grand time putting them together. i didn’t think i would necessarily enjoy the handstitching, but it turns out that i enjoy it and it gives me a good project to do while i’m watching a movie. i’ll gladly take these off your hands to make a pillow or maybe part of a wallhanging.

  367. 367
    Catherine says:

    Oh, I love handsewing–I can do it while I watch my kids playing in the sandbox, or in the playroom–anywhere–much easier than setting up my machine and ironing board in the corner of the kitchen. I would love to use these. Thanks!

  368. 368
    Angie says:

    Love the hexagon projects out there too, just a nervous about tackling one. Love this line of fabric, winning would be a real treat thanks for sharing!

    Nani says:

    yep, I’d have to make a couple of pillows for me & my girls!!! Those are just too cool. I think hand sewing is amazing! It puts the love into the item for sure. I enjoy putting my own touches on projects with some hand sewing, but it is so time consuming…but worth it.

    Kathleen says:

    I used to hate hand sewing, but now I find it’s nice when I’m waiting in the car line to pick my daughter up from school or sitting at my other daughter’s ballet class. I’ve been considering making hexagons just so I could hand sew, but I don’t really like the style of the finished product all that much. And I also never really got the craziness over Flea Market Fancy. So, why am I getting in on this giveaway? Because I really want to try the hand sewing hexagons thing without the pain in the behind basting to the paper–so I figured I’d make these into a pillow and then send it to you. I know the giveaway is random, so I’m not trying to kiss up to you!

    Sarah says:

    I would love to sew hexes together but am not sure if I’d have the patience to make them. I’d probably make a mini quilt for teaching purposes- to show how traditional patterns can be updated with modern fabrics.

  372. 372
    Karen says:

    Yee gads! I am planning to make a hexagon quilt as we speak. I have not decided on my fabrics or design. If you send me the too lovely hexes, I’ll send you a care package of sweets and shells from the beach and a leetle surprise. I love nice looking boxes.

  373. 373
    Sara R. says:

    I’ve never made anything with hexagons…but I am looking for something I can do while watching tv or driving up to see my in-laws. Would like to make something for the new baby’s corner of the bedroom…? Who knows?!

    Abra says:

    I would love a project that I could do while watching TV. I really don’t mind hand sewing, but don’t have the patients to hand quilt though. My Great Grandma hand quilted all of her quilts well into her 90′s. The hexagons are very sweet. I love the pillow idea or maybe a crib quilt.

    Roseanne says:

    oh my! a whole new world out there – I hadn’t looked into hexagons before i read this post! so many beautiful projects out there. I’d like to do a block quilt for my neice with these! ♥ thanks for sharing!

  377. 377
    Elizabeth says:

    Oh these are just wonderful–take them apart–no way. I think they would be perfect in my daughter’s room as a bulletin board above her desk. I’ve made bulletin boards before by stretching fabric over a base then adding ribbons, but hand sewing those little hexies together would be the perfect for a more unique look. Besides it’s relaxing thing to hand sew instead of always sitting at my machine.

    Alisa says:

    I’ve been afraid of learning how to make those darling little hexagons because I hear they’re addictive. Well, sign me up. My family can organize an intervention later! Hexagon addiction here I come. Thanks for the chance to own those little lovelies. Your blog is wonderful and your work stunning. Thank you for all the inspiration. What would I make? Probably some kind of cafe curtain to hang over my kitchen sink window. That way I can look at it….a lot.

    Susy Trower says:

    What an amazing giveaway! I LOVE your style and quilts! I’m a “confident beginner”, have only made 3 quilts so far this year, but am ready and willing to learn how to work with hexigons and hand sewing. Wish you’d publish the pattern for your Laurie Wisbrun’s Animal Sherbet Squares Quilt in your Shop!

    Who would be crazy enough to take these apart?? I really heart hexagons. I am almost finished with a dining room table and a smaller one for an end table.

    Dani says:

    I love to hand sew, particularly because I am able to do it at work when it gets slow. Much like knitting, it is a great way to slow things down a little when life gets crazy. One stitch after another, and before you know it, a wonderful *something* appears in front of you.

    I have not tried hexagons before but would love to see the construction of them up close and personal. The fabric line is so pretty too – perfect for this time of year. I would love to do a quilt with little gatherings of hexagons with a solid background. Something very “Film in the Fridge” shall we say. It would be fun to try to work out the math on that one. :)

    ellen says:

    I love these hexagons. I have been making a hexagon quilt out of 30′s fabrics to go on my grandmother’s bed that i just inherited. I love to have hexagons ready so i can carry them around in my to and fro project bag for those times of just sitting and waiting.

  383. 383
    Kendra Davis says:

    Emily S says:

    Hand sewing is my favorite! I haven’t given hexagons a shot yet, but it would be great to start out with a lot of the dirty work done for you :)

  386. 386

    My sewing machine broke about just over a month ago, so I’ve been getting into hand-sewing, which shockingly has been quite fun! Just yesterday I saw a pattern where the hexagons were sewn in single rows with white diamonds in between the rows. I think that your hexagons would look really cool this way. It would be a great project while I save up for my new machine!

  387. 387
    Rachelle says:

    I have been wanting to make some of these hexagons since you posted about them last time. I have a mild obsession with hexagons, I have a huge rug with hexagons on it in my house. I think I’d love to make pillows, bags, or a quilt with these. I really do enjoy hand sewing. (just maybe not this week… it is all I’ve done at work, making a fake dog, with shedding fake black fur.) Thank you for sharing these.

  388. 388
    Cindy says:

    I would love to win these! No, I have never made these and have always wanted to learn how. I have sewn most of my life but just found quilting a few months ago and have so much to learn. I am loving it though and am having fun!:) I would find something to make out of these – maybe start out with a pillow. Thanks for the chance!

  389. 389
    Ramona says:

    OOOOooooh! my fingers are crossed! I really like hand sewing, but hate basting, so I’ve never made it very far with hexagons! besides, they should stay in CA….

    Jolie says:

    Squeeee!!! What a fab idea for a giveaway! I adore hexagons, but I have to confess the cutting out part just about drives me over the edge, and since that’s the first step, I never quite seem to get around to it. To get hexagons already cut out and basted – and in such gorgeous fabrics to boot – would be like the ultimate in good news shortcuts! Thanks again!

  391. 391
    Amy says:

    What a great idea. I love it when we crafters are able to admit our strengths and weaknesses. My weakness happens to be my inability to get the machine out for anything. I’m only hand sewing these days (2 small children, tiny apartment). I would give those hexes a warm & loving home.

  392. 392
    Kim H. says:

    Hi I love your work and really enjoy following your blog! Though mostly a machine quilter, I do love to sew hexagons by hand…my subway project. FYI, there is a terrific rubber stamp and fabric ink for hexagons that has the cutting line and seam allowance, so all you have to do is straight stitch, corner to corner. No paper and very precise! Lots of hex goodness.

  393. 393

    Cara says:

    Hexagons intimidate me but I’d love the challenge of handsewing them together if i won these beauties. I’d probably either make a pillow with them or use them to adorn the front of a large tote bag. Fun!!

    Ariane says:

    I have never made hexagons, but I have done a lot of hand stitching. I am working on a hexagon star quilt right now all done by hand. It is made up of diamonds. I would love a chance to win these. I would make a beautiful quilt with them. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Vanessa says:

    I’ve been admiring those hexagons since you first posted them. I would love to make a dolly quilt for my daughter as I have a new bub on the way and I think we’re going to have to deal with some jealousy issues. She would love it.

    Susan M. says:

    heather says:

    Such beautiful cheerful fabrics…
    I’ve got so many projects that could use a little sprinkle of color. I don’t think I’d have the patience (or time for that matter) to stitch them into a full quilt, but I could put a few on a skirt, tote bag, zipper pouch, placemat/napkin set, sewing machine cover…. this list goes on and on. I’m thinking they’d look great paired with linen!

    Keriann says:

    Ok I am too tickled right now with hope for actually winning a giveaway for once and the thought of winning such wonderful little hexagons is even more tickling!!!

    As for my hexagon experiences well yes I too LOVE them! I myself have recently discovered them and was hook! I’ve tried all sorts of things stitching and seem ripping then re stitching and I’ll tell you the biggest thing I’ve learned JUST HAND SEW THEM!!!! I am not a terribly patient person so I attempted the machine sewn approach and after really giving my machine a kick in the ego (due to way to much “non” cursing at it) I decided to give it a whirl by hand….it’s way easier and in the long run it’s really less time consuming to do it by hand!!

    So there’s my lesson learned!

    As for what I would do with the hexagons if I were to be SO LUCKY as to win them (hint hint =) well if there is enough I’d love to make a blanket for my baby! If not I’ll think up something! Hexagons are inspiring!

  403. 403

    These are beautiful. i made hexagons for a mini quilt they are 1/2″ fnished. Luckily they were only put together into one 5″ square. Most of the other squares were pieced. I enjoyed hexagons just not that small. These would make great pillows.

    Hi, I made a lap hexy quilt this winter. Paper pieced it by hand. I thought I would hate making it, but it was very relaxing and addictive. I would love your hexies, you always pick such gorgous fabrics! Your work is always fresh and vibrant, thanks for having a give away, Sharonj.

    I would love them! I really enjoy hand sewing-gives me something to keep me occupied while watching tv! I’d probably use them to make a pillow, to go on my bed, above which hangs the mini flea market fancy quilt I won from your previous giveaway. :) Is it wrong to hope I win something from you twice?!

    Luisa says:

    Wow these are so cool. It’s so kind of you to give these away. I have never done anything with hexagons yet. I’m thinking maybe some day to do some pillows with hexagons.

  414. 414

    Oh cool! I would love them too~ along with the other 333 commenters LOL! I don’t mind hand sewing~ especially if it is something pretty. ;-) I would take them along for all the times I am waiting for DS and after i got them sewn together, I’d make a wall hanging, or a tote bag… ;-)

  415. 415
    Sara says:

    Hmmmm. Since you’re nice enough to give them away, I’d make you a pillow (if you’re interested), then use the rest for a baby quilt for my little girl due in a couple of months. I’ve never worked with hexagons, but I do like them and I love to hand sew. I’ve been hooked on embroidery lately and hexagons would be a nice change of pace.

  416. 416
    Chrissy says:

    First of all, I would make something for you. I can’t tell you what just yet because I never really have a plan, I just start making. I would never have the patience to make hexagons, but I LOVE hand sewing. You can find me any night sitting in bed, sewing while I watch mindless television. If you could get a J.D. from watching Law & Order I would have one!

    I have never made any hexagons, but your other post about them inspired me to order some hegaxon papers. They are sitting on my stove right now, waiting for me to tear into them and get started on something fun.

    I want to also say that I am so in love with your postcards from the park quilt. I keep coming back here to look at it and try to decide if I have the quilting ability to attempt one like it.

    Mary Beth says:

    I’d love to start a hexagon quilt with them!!!

  420. 420

    How sweet! I’ve played around with making a few hexagons, but never got enough made to really do anything with them! This would give me enough to make a little table topper or maybe a few pillows – one for you! and that FMF is so much fun!

    I would love them because I’m so addicted to these hexagons right now. Sadly, I must sew together at least one or two before work, a few at lunch, and then I get nothing done at night except watch TV and sew hexagons. It’s horrible. AND, I did a post on them today…..www.whatupduck.com. Thanks for all the great inspiration Ashley!!

    Theresa says:

    Well I’ll weigh in for what it’s worth! I may be too late and at 389, probably no chance!
    I’ve never worked with hexagons but love the idea of a little bag. For all the machine work I do, I also love the process of hand stitching on binding. So not scared to attack a little bit more hand sewing!

  424. 424

    I have yet to work with hexagons like this but would love to do so. I am not quite sure what I would make But Im sure it will be wonderful since it would be in the flea market fancy line. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  425. 425

    Oh my Heaven!! These are just breathtaking. And I love the flea Market Fancy fabrics too!! I can see a beautiful pillow made out of these hexagons…they are so yummy colorful. Thanks for posting.

    Amber Lee says:

    I haven’t tried these yet, but am lucky enough to have two wonderful hand sewn quilts handed down to me that we use daily and love! I think it would be fun to make a stack of these when driving a long ways, but I tend to stick to knitting for that. Right now I am thinking I would use them to edge a little dress for my daughter, it would just looks so sweet!

    Jen says:

    I’ve never made hexagons but they sure are lovely. I really should try them because I love to hand sew. The binding on a quilt is my favorite part on making a quilt. These would be great to get started and inspired to make more!

    Dorothy B says:

    I first learnt to sew hexagons when I was 12 years old and in Grade 6. I still love them. Even if your edges are slightly off they will fit together for someone just fine. I love your wonky bricks quilt – very inspiring.

    Cindy says:

    Hexagons? Oh, I hear you sister!
    Trace back 17 years…a 21 year old girl, with child for the first time, with creative nesting instinct coming to the fore – sans skill/technique….a lovely cot quilt pattern inspiring to make a quilt for the first time…THEN,the reality….drawing up, cutting out paper templates that never seem to match, ditto with the fabric…then piecing the hexagons of various size together, again that never seem to match…then when I thought I had finally finished, being told in a quilt shop – ‘now you QUILT it all together’???
    What a nightmare! It all ended up taking me 4 years, and I guess a voice inside kept telling me I’m a bad mother if I don’t finish it! But it started a love affair with quilt making and all things textile that won’t fade, & for a little while now I have been looking askance at hexagons, thinking, ‘Hmmm, It’s time to have another go’. So really, what wouldn’t I do with your beautiful hexagons, especially now that you have done all the hard work??

    I will most likely make something for my new grandbaby due on june 14 or maybe something for one of the 5 babys due to women i work with!!! there are babies everywhere in my life!!!!

  432. 432

    OMG! Are you kidding me?!?!? I would do anything for hexagons or FMF (and I’ve never had any FMF). And you have put the two together!!! There are so many things I would/could make with hexagons — pillows, mini quilts, a throw…. Maybe even a little something to send right back to you :). I love handwork. I started out doing little embroidery kits as a child that my mother would buy me when I went to the fabric store with her. Happy memories!

    Leigh says:

    The hexagon’s are beautiful! I have an unfinished project of hexagons from my great grandmother that I am working up my confidence to begin. I would love the opportunity to make a pillow with the beautiful hexagons you made.

  434. 434
    Adele says:

    Oh boy, this is right up my alley as I have recently become addicted to hexies…. my little boy asked if making them was my new job…. ha, I wish! Wish me luck in your fabulously generous and wonderful giveaway. XX

    Eve says:

    I took your lead this week and made a half hexagon quilt. I was trying to work up the courage for a “real” hexagon project, but alas, I am lazy. This might do the trick, though!

  436. 436
    Katie says:

    Would love to win some hexagons, they’re wonderful, I would use them to embellish pillows and throws.

  437. 437
    Sharon says:

    Ashley I totally understand where you’re coming from. I love making hexies but sewing them together is beyond my patience. My compromise is to machine applique them to projects and my daughters clothes. I think these would make lovely appliqued flowers.

    oh count me in…I’ve been dreaming of hexagon pillows.

    kylie says:

    Love the hexs and FMF, never tried to actually sew hex’s myself but there is first time for everything and what better hexscould you find to begin with, none. I’d mix ythem with lots of white for a throw.

  440. 440
    Julie says:

    The colors of your beautiful hexes remind me of the piecework done by Robert Mathison in his c1875 Mosaic Quilt (http://www.quiltindex.org/basicdisplay.php?pbd=ConnecticutQuilts-a0a1y5-a). I would love to use your hexes to recreate something similar

  441. 441
    Barb says:

    Wow, what a generous give-away. I’ve only tried hexes once – for a VQB. And to start, I hated sewing them together too, but it really does get better as you do more. I’d love to make a pillow out of those gorgeous FMF hexes.

  442. 442
    Carmen says:

    I’ve never cut any hexagons so I wouldn’t even know where to begin but I would love to sew them!!

  443. 443
    Sheridan says:

    Oh I love them! I just thought last week, after seeing some on Flickr, how awesome the FMF looks in hexagons!

    Me, I love actually sewing them together, but basting them to the paper? Not so much.

    I’m not sure that #433 could be that lucky, but it’s worth a try!

  444. 444
    Tora says:

    Love the hexagons so much – and the fabric, well what can you say that hasn’t already been said about Flea Market Fancy? I’d mix the with some white and make a fabo throw! What a great give-a-way!

  445. 445
    CitricSugar says:

    I am completely pro-hexagons. The biggest reason I haven’t made any is that I haven’t had the time to cut out the hexes… LOL. I also find hand-sewing very relaxing.

  446. 446
    Sylvie says:

    Me, me, me, please pick me!
    I have tried hexagons recently and I liked it. I only appliqued some on a bag so it did not take me long but I really enjoyed the process (even more than I thought)
    And I have also started to make more hexes to make a pillow.
    I would be sooooooooooo happy to win your hexagones!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  447. 447
    tara says:

    these are beautiful. i have never made any hexagons but maybe it would give me something to do at night at work.

  448. 448
    Solidia says:

    I would probably make a pillow with the hexies. I like making them, but have only made a couple of mini quilts with them.

    Shay says:

    I love the hexagon look, but to be honest I hate to hand sew. Despise it!

    So…if I was the lucky lucky lucky recipient of this uber cool giveaway, I’d give them to my Mum (who does love to hand sew) and she could give them back to me , as a gift (made into something gorgeous )

    Then we could both feel like we’ve won!

  450. 450
    Jeannie says:

    I had made hexagons quilt when I was a teenager for a school project…loooooong time ago. If I won this giveaway, it’s half of the work done…I don’t mind to hand stitch them. I’m sure it will be a beautiful quilt.

  451. 451
    kim says:

    hexagons are just fine . I like having a project to do when I am away from my machine. I was quite interested in the process of this quilt but I like the idea of having the firt steps already done.

  452. 452
    Ladypennyjane says:

    Oh I need these!! It was your post on ‘hooked on hexagons’ which inspired me to try paper piecing. I now have living room full of tiny hexagons, and a patient husband who is begging me to stop making him cut them out. I took them to a quilter’s games day at our local guild (where I was the youngest attendee (27) by about 40 years) and they were a hit! Apparently it is lovely to see young people having a go at such a traditional style, though they were unconvinced by my combination’s of colours and patterns. Day of the Dead fabric doesn’t feature heavily at this group.
    And a story to help keep you entertained on your long airport day; we were instructed to make a square made up of 25 2.5″ squares in as many fabrics as possible. What were we using these colourful creations for? What else… Quilt bingo!!!! The caller would say things like ‘beige with flowers’, or ‘yellow stars, whose got yellow stars’. I didn’t win but the shouts of ‘quilted house’ have stayed with me…..

    A bizarre crafting day, but sewing those tiny hexagons kept me sane, so please send them over and they can join my ever growing stash.

  453. 453
    april says:

    Honestly I am a little scared to try and piece a ton of hexagons together but if I happened to win I would call it fate and I would surely give it try. I do love how they look together.

  454. 454
    Jody says:

    I too want to be honest and say I’m not sure about handsewing but I’d give it a try…if that failed I know I would make a FMF quilt of some sort for my wee one:) Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  455. 455
    Helen says:

    The only handsewing in this house is sewing down the binding! Hexagons remind me of my Mum, she would NEVER use these colours, way to trendy for her.

  456. 456
    Wen says:

    I would love to have the hexagons. I have made a hexagon quilt and had a fab time hand-sewing it together. Would love to make another one!

  457. 457
    Susan McKey says:

    I learned to quilt by hand piecing and hand quilting, although I rarely do it anymore. I’ve been so enamored of the hexagon project because it would get me to do more hand sewing. I love hand sewing my bindings on, and I really like to have hand piecing projects every now and then when I can’t lug my machine around. I would love some hexagons all ready to be hand sewn together…bring me back to my quilting roots. I love your work and your joy of quilting! best.

  458. 458
    Mary Defee says:

    Oh, I would love, love, love to have those! I love FMF and would love to make a pillow with them.

  459. 459

    Wow! Awesome fabric colors! Whoever wins these is very lucky! Let’s hope its me :) I just finished making a large quilt with a hexagon-shaped block, but I really haven’t done much with these type of pieced hexagons … but I’d like to try! I’m getting ready for craft fair season and would love making a lap quilt or table runners to add to my booth.

    Kellie says:

    Hi! My name is Kellie and I’m a lurker. I have loved your blog for a few months now. These FMF are beautiful! If I had these fabrics I’m honestly not sure what I’d do-continue with the hexagons or do squares, or a combination of both. I’d love a chance to try though!

  461. 461
    Mel says:

    I don’t own any FMF but I would loooove to! I totally missed the boat on getting any and now even tiny scraps are over priced! I’ve never worked wtih hexagons before but I don’t mind sewing by hand. I’d probably attempt to make a quilt with them since ultimately that’s what I really want…a FMF quilt!

    Unrelated and I forgot to comment the other day. I really really like the postcards from the park quilt! I’m thinking I might attempt someting like it soon. It’s basically just rectangles within wonky borders right? I’ve not yet given wonky a try in any quilts but I think I might have to.

  462. 462

    These are beautiful. They would make a perfect picnic quilt.
    I would love to sew on these by hand while I spend time with the family watching movies, doing homework etc.

  463. 463
    Kim says:

    I’ll try just in case I”m not too late- I would love to incorporate them into a quilt with a lot of solids so they pop. This is such beautiful fabric!

  464. 464
    susana says:

    I love both hexagons and hand sewing (well, I would rather sew by machine most days, but my sewing time is at night, and the Singer really interferes with baby’s sleep), but I have yet to try any, because I am not the world’s most exact person, so I am a little scared they wouldn’t match up at all.
    If I won yours, I would (hug them and pet them and stare at them for a long while and then) gather all my courage and cut out some more in off-white and try to make a throw with scattered hex flowers. If that failed, unpick and applique onto baby clothes, which never fails.

  465. 465
    Annie Smith says:

    I’ve wanted to make a Grandmother’s flower garden for the longest time but have been hesitateing to attempt it….mostly because I’ve hated the idea of makeing all those hexagons. Lovew the look of yours. If I won them I’d sew them into flowers and than applique them to the center of a background fabric so I’d have some wonderful blocks to incorporate into a sampler quilt, or perhaps, some cushions. Thanks for the chance to win.

  466. 466
    Leslie says:

    I have always wanted to try some of these, and your colors are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them and all your hard work.

  467. 467
    Pam A says:

    I love these little guys too. I have a Grandmothers flower garden started, they are a great take a long type project, and yes they are very addictive. I would love to win these! The fact that the are FMF makes them so very awesome I can’t tell you how much I would love to have these! ^_^

  468. 468
    Eeva says:

    I would like to sew these by hand while my youngest daughter (one year old)is having a nap and sewing with machine would be “too noisy”. I haven`t done any hexagons yet cause my “to do -list” is already too long. I love those FMF -fabric colours but I don`t have any yet..

    tammy says:

    My wonderful and talented friends Betty and Sherry would put these to good use – they quilt so much for charity that I would love to be able to give one of them something for them (why do nice people seldom ever get gifted in return?). I would contribute my most enthusiastic cheering as they had their way with that beautiful fabric! Woot. My personal sewing skills end at suggesting color combinations. Tammy

    Those are gorgeous! It’s funny that you don’t like sewing them together because I think that making them would be the drudgery part for me and sewing them together would be fun.

    Kay Taylor says:

    I made a hexagon pillow years ago and loved it, but somehow never got around to doing anything else with them. I’d love to try another. Your color choices are always right on!

    Monica says:

    oh my oh my!!

    are you absolutely sure you want to give them away???

    hexagon are just sooo perfect.. and in my favourite fabric line. Bliss.

    I’ve never made anything in fabric, only in crochet… but I guess there’s always the first time, eh?

    (weirdly the putting them together is not as scary to me as actually making the things!)

    Sara says:

    This is the greatest giveaway of all time. I hope I’m not too late (I thought I commented yesterday, but it doesn’t appear to be up there). I love, love, love traveling projects, so this would be perfect! I will hand sew these with love and pride :)

  477. 477

    Claudia says:

    Boah, how many comments.

    Yesterday you inspired me to start with those hexagons. And I think it is like a virus – you can’t stop it ;-))

    I like it to sew them together and see what happens. I think I’ll do some quilts for the preemies in the hospital of my hometown here in Germany.

    Greetings from Europe, Claudia

    Shirley says:

    Of course I would love to help you out by releasing you from this burden. (ha) My friend is currently doing a hexagon quilt and is also quite addicted to the process. It would be great fun to share the creation of this project with her. (we usually hang our blocks on a design wall and ask for feedback from each other.) If I am the lucky one, I promise to send pics. thanks for the opportunity

    Tara says:

    Wow, apparently we all want them! Hexagons intimidate the crap out of me, but I have a beautiful vintage grandmother’s flower garden from my great great aunt and it is my hands down favorite quilt! I do like hand sewing, and would make a pillow that is then hand quilted! Thanks for the chance to win!

    isa says:

    What a great giveaway!!!
    I love FMF, and I love hexagons, I’ve only tried machinepiecing them, but I’ve been wanting to try paperpieceng them for a long time, and this would really send me of too a flying start!!
    Thank you so much for the chance!!

    Tracy C. says:

    I hope its not too late to enter. I would love those little hexagons. Not sure what I would do with them yet, but I love hand sewing. I find it very relaxing (when I can find the time).

  485. 485
    Amber Z says:

    I LOVE them. I really want to try my hand at hexagons and have cut out some of the paper backing, but haven’t gotten past that point. Even with all the online tutorials, I’m still afraid to take the next step, so having some already started would help confirm that I’m on the right track. I was thinking a hexagon center with extra thick borders to frame them. Thanks so much for the offer and all the hard work.

  486. 486
    Allie says:

    I love hexagons….but I have never made one! I generally don’t do any hand sewing, but I do talk my Mom into doing some for me now and then. I would love your beautiful work!

    Dolly says:

    485 responses later, I don’t know if I have a good chance at winning these, but they’re SO WORTH trying.
    I made a baby quilt from hexagons once, and it was SO difficult to give away ! But I dreaded all the basting of hexagons over paper again, so I’ve never made MYSELF anything from hexes.
    I WOULD LOVE to have these to do as handwork for all the doctor’s appointments I seem to find myself waiting on lately.
    Thank you for your generosity and for doing this part of the work for WHOMEVER winds up with them………..(really hope it’s me!)

  488. 488
    Annie Medeiros says:

    Oh wow…I love love love hand sewing hexagons. The first project I made with them I thought I would dread all the hand work, but I fell in love with it.
    But…I hate the basting step…you and me, we should get together. You could baste them, and I’ll sew them up…

  489. 489
    sara korinek says:

    wow, i love the hexagons and the fabric as well. i’ve hand appliqued a baby quilt for my son and while i forever enjoy machine quilting, the occasional hand-sewing project is welcomed too for car trips, waiting in line, etc.

    i’ve just been asked to make a quilt for a friend who lost 3 babies with their belongings..I think this might be the perfect thing to incoporate around the edges of that quilt, i’m thinking hand appliqued along the sashing.

    thanks for the qiveaway!

    charity n says:

    I love the hexagons! I have never made any, but i am not too afraid of hand sewing :) I would incorporate them into my son’s quilt (a work in progress). With the ones that are too girly, something for me!! Maybe a little bag or something. So many ideas :)

  491. 491
    Connie says:

    Hexagons are what got me started in sewing last summer. I love hand sewing! I made a small hexagon pillow cover out of vintage 40s fabrics, and it turned out great. I think hand sewing is easier to stop and start because there is no machine involved, and it is very portable. Ahh, to sit in my cozy chair, feet on the ottoman, with a bunch of hexies waiting to be sewn into something… how cozy!!!

  492. 492
    Leigh says:

    I love these hexagons! I have never made them but I would love to try. I might even be willing to make us both a pillow… (does bribing work?) :)

    I am actually new to sewing and your post introduced me to sewing hexagons. They look like so much fun. I love hand sewing and if I won I would make a wall hanging for my little guys room.

    Lisa LeBlanc says:

    Ok, so I am with you on the hand piecing. I love Flea Market Fancy and have been trying unsuccessfully to find any, or enough of a variety. I promise to take good care of your hexagons and will send you a photo of the finished project. I love your work and my work has improved because of your blog. Greetings from Texas, Lisa

    Wow! Lots of comments! I personally don’t have the patience for hexagons but my sister in law is in love with them. Her 18th birthday is in a month and I would give them to her! I hope you aren’t reading this Hannah!!!

    Tara says:

    This reminds me of my grandmother. She used to make hexagon quilts a lot-I think she called them flower garden quilts.

    I would probably make a pillow for my bed. It would go well with the scrap quilt she made me.

  503. 503
    Jen says:

    Wow – I am amazed at your willingness to part with these. I have been eyeballing them since you posted about them and have been dying to try making some. I have mixed feelings about handsewing, but have been in a phase of trying to push myself to try new handmade methods. I currently have three projects on my knitting needles all of which are stretching me in new ways. And my WIP quilting pile is about to get attacked in a similar fashion. I think I would either integrate these into a wedding quilt for a friend or make something for my other friend’s new baby with them. I’ll keep my fingers crossed – but either way, these are definitely on my to do list!

  504. 504

    Wow! What a great giveaway! I like to quilt by hand and could definitely finish this project up.
