    Default Make a "Quilt As You Go Hexagon" Quilt with Jenny Doan



    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I have downloaded the video for watching later and having it at hand.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    I'm tempted, but not. I have a hexie quilt after all, but seeing the other things they pulled together. It would be great to have for a Secret Santa project or two.

    Hmmmmmmm.

    It looks fun to me. I am not a big fan of handwork but will be on a trip next year that will have lots of down time and some hand work might be nice to have.
    I like that the quilt is done when you are through sewing together the blocks.

    I've got it in my shopping cart. I've been wanting to do a Hexies, but not a fan of small pieces. I like this option, and I can bring with me to do while DH has appts.

    I have added the Clover fabric folding pen, as I would be able to press without an iron. I can see other uses for it. Besides, I'm a gadget girl and I have to have it.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Good idea about the folding pen, I won't have access to an iron. I already have one of those and haven't used it in a coons age.

    That is cute. I made a quilt like this years ago without the lovely templates of course. I folded the backing over like they did and pinned and then stitched with a blanket stitch. then later on this quilt i hand stitched them all together. If i did it now, i would think of doing a zig zag. i am thinking of that method because i have a small basket of these already cut out! may be my last one.
    folded over like this was called individual hexagons or Hickory Nut (for some reason) or framed hex's.

    And the template as the daily deal is a plus.

    I caved, and bought a bunch of solid black I'm going to need for another project. I hope I remember what it was by the time it gets here!

    A hexie quilt has been on my list for a long time . I also like the idea of being able to work with larger pieces of fabric and after reading this post I had to have it and the folding pen. ( you enablers!!) This will be nice to work on while sitting on the couch watching tv.
