It's Hex Time Again!

As I mentioned in my last post, Laura Kemshall (DMTV) inspired me several years ago to learn English Paper Piecing (EPP).  I found at that time I loved making hex's, although, I think at some time in the future I may venture to making some different EPP shapes!  Here are some of the hex quilts I've made over the years.
Horse Hex #1

Horse Hex #2

My followers will recognize my horse hex projects.  These are my inspiration for my next project!

Beach Glass - hangs in our master bath

These next three hex pieces were made for the online challenge group - Art Quilts Around the World
Theme - Uniform

Road Less Traveled

Theme - Science DNA
And here is the start of my current hex (EPP) project!  Actually, this design was from a copyright free book Susan loaned me one year while in Florida.  I was going to use it for a reverse applique quilt.

I just happened to have found this enlarged copy (20" x 24") I had made, and, well, the rest is history as they say!

So my next post will catch you up as to colors and how I'm going to work on this one!  I think!!!


  1. What a nice visit with your past hexie projects…..can’t wait to see what comes next!

  2. Ooooo...that's gonna be fun! I'm a huge fan of "Road Less Traveled". Hexes have served you well!

  3. That's a lot of hexes sewn over the years! Do you receive the AQS magazine? Interesting article in there about linens and laces used in hexes- lovely. Cindy Needham is the author/designer and she calls them Lexies. Look forward to seeing what comes next for you.

  4. These are all hexcellent pieces! heheh, sorry, couldn't resist.

  5. This is going to be interesting! I have been thinking I'd like to try different shapes of EPP too. I make them when the mood fits and store them. I'm going to need A LOT more, lol.

  6. Wow Robbie......I have never seen a hexy quilt done like your horse quilt! That is really something! Nicely done.
