Thinking Hexagons Today

I am presenting my trunk show tonight on hexies. I call it: Turning 60, The Joys of Hex. Let's see one of my oldie-goldie quilts using a half hexagon:

Half Hexagon Flower Pots
Then I made another one for Windham Fabrics. This appeared in my 2012 Wall Calendar of Quilts. You can find it (and 11 other patterns) for only $10.

Dancing Flower Pots. 10" Blocks; 55" x 55" quilt
And I used this half-hexagon pot shape for one other quilt. The flowers were fussy cut from a happy Lakehouse Fabrics fabric motif. Isn't this such a happy quilt?

Pots of Blooms
And in a FREE pattern on my Craftsy page: Trash Basket Batiks (made in 2002). I rummaged in the trash cans during a guild sew-in and grabbed all the discarded batik scraps. I got the last laugh with these fun blooms. Go get the FREE pattern: Trash Basket Batiks.

I figure I probably have another one or two creations around here using the half-hexagon for a flower pot. But for now, I hope you enjoy seeing all 4 of what I found so far.


  1. That will be one fun show. Great quilts.

  2. such variety of hexies I am sure everyone will enjoy your trunk show

  3. I love the Pots of Blooms. Such a happy quilt.

  4. What fun quilts! I have that same Lakehouse flower print fabric and never thought about using the print as big potted flowers.

  5. What a great presentation that will be. Or was. I like your trash basket flowers, and it makes me feel better not to be the only one to harvest scraps from the trash. LOL
