A very dear friend gifted me with a bag full of  delightful red fabrics.
It didn't take me long to iron them, cut them and turn them
 into more hexi's to add to my ever growing pile.
 As l stitch l add more memories to this quilt
This is a common view as l look down at my lap.

And hopefully this is a not so common view! An oooppps!  moment!
Thankfully it didn't take me long to put right.

l love watching this pile grow.

As l fill the tin, l anticipate more flowers on the pile.

Here is my collection to date.
32 finished, and 13 centres.

Not sure exactly how many  ( 160?? ) l need to make total,
 so l will just continue while the hex is in place!

We had A Piece of Cloth come visit us at the barn recently with her trunk show.
In fact l recommend a visit to read her latest blog post
 about "Definitions" of a Modern Quilter. Very interesting reading.

There were many happy quilters who went
 home with treasures tucked under their arms.

Here is a small sampling of mine.
l will show you a better photo of them in a future post,
as well as some other goodies that called my name!

It seems the seasons are a little confused by our  recent weather.
Here is a jug full of white Lilac flowers. Nothing unusual if we were in spring,
but we are 12 days out from the start of winter!! huh??
l will enjoy them now, and cross my fingers we get our usual spring show as well!

And for those who inquired about my daughters puppy,
 here is a recent photo of  Duffy, who has made a
 remarkable full recovery from her car accident.
Not only 1 quilt to play in, but 2!!
Such a sweet dog!

Thanks for visiting,



  1. You're hexies are looking wonderful!! They're multiplying at a fast rate! I love your new old fabrics, the one with the hot air balloon is particularly fabulous. Little Duffy is such a sweetie, I'm glad she's okay.

    1. Rachael, Thanks for your comment. Just wait till l show you the whole piece of fabric. Lots of different hot air balloons! Its fabulous!

  2. Your friend has great taste in red fabric :0) What a tin full of red goodness -- your hexie flowers look wonderful! That is so interesting about the lilacs - I can only imagine how good they smell. We are a few weeks away from lilacs blooming where I live although someone went and planned a lilac festival this weekend in my city. Pretty well the only thing blooming here right now is dandelions... I look forward to a closer look at your goodies - some look very interesting!!

  3. Oh wow! I am totally drooling over all your lovely red hexies. I can tell I have a hexy project in my future! Very sweet to find new fabrics. I don't think there will ever be enough in the stash.:)

  4. The hexies are wonderful. I am in the middle of an ongoing project as well. Have you thought of punching a hole in the papers so that they will be easy to pop out? Always enjoy my visit to the Barn.

  5. Gorgeous fabrics, Linda. I can't wait to see your quilt put together.

  6. I love your hexies! The reds are fabulous! I can't wait to see the hexie flowers become a quilt!

  7. Wow, love those hexie's. I'm so jealous, mine are modern prints in a diamond shape and I'm flying with these. I will have to start saving for a red quilt with neutrals like yours. It is an inspiration! Have a great day hexing!
