Who knew?

Hexagons with sashing
Sometimes ... I'm convinced that ignorance is what drives creativity ... it never occurred to me that it would be difficult to sash hexagons ... until, of course, I had already cut 40+ of them out.  Who knew?

I finished my first commission quilt this week ... which I will share when I get around to taking some photos ... my second commission is a baby quilt for a boy and it was left TOTALLY up to me to do what I want ...

And I decided it was hexagons ... still not entirely sure what I'm going to do with them ... but I've got some ideas once I finish sashing them all.

Which leads me to the sashing part ... not so easy ... but I'm optimistic this will work ... once I figure it all out ;-).

So far ... I've got a stack of about 30 of them with 1" Kona Snow sashing ... I'm actually looking forward to seeing what I do with them ...

Hope you guys are having a productive week!

All the best,


  1. I love the white sashing on them - really makes them pop, and the background that you've taken the pictures of them on just emphasizes that - I can so see them sewn up with a linen background in that "just thrown on there" way they look in the picture i.e. different amounts of background showing through between them. This is going to be a charming boys quilt for sure!

  2. Those look fantastic! Elizabeth Hartman's Modern Patchwork book has a quilt on the cover that has sashed hexagons - might be some inspiration/help there if you need it :)
