Have you heard of us Hexaholics? We LOVE our hexes and Grandmother Flower Garden Quilts.
Here's a place for us to meet and talk, question and report progress.


A little inspiration:

Click on Grandmother Flower Garden and it is a great tutorial on the way I make my hexes.

Many years ago, I was a hexiholic . I was so far gone I made a queen size Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. When I feel a relapse coming on, I look at that quilt and get controll again. It is hard, and I so loved my hexiies of choice, but I had to give it up and move on to other forms of quilting. But I have to be honest and confess since my hexi recovery I started doing stuffed cathedral windows. This is another long addiction and maybe in another year I will be strong enough to give this one up too. Then I will be a recovered hexiholic and windowholic . I will pry for your recovery.

wow, these are lovely!
judi, those blocks are lovely!! (can you call them blocks? mmm...)

here is mine... it's been sewn together a bit more since this picture, but it's still a work in progress...
most of this was made in the dead of night, during a time when i was night shift... some of the other girls chose to 'doze' while i refused and actually put together a whole 'segment' each night...
it will be completed 'one day'...
i find the hand sewing very therapeutic!!

I started sewing mine together with a white fourth joining ring. This is going to be queen size to fit my bed :-)

I also told my girls this quilt is the one going over my coffin when I die. So I guess if I work REAL slow I'll live a LONG time. LOL
