What do they call this?  eye-candy?  a stack of 6 inch pre-cut hexigons . . . 

 . . . randomly sewn together.  How easy is that?

. . . pretty fun actually, till it comes to sewing the rows together.  Then, it gets pretty tedious.

 Marking the corners as instructed with the provided template does help . . . trust me.

I'm not sure about it . . . but I'll keep going.

And then last night, for some random reason, I decided it was time to break into my coveted, secretly protected, untouched, highly invested in, Heather Ross fabrics that have been stored in a cool, dry place.  Maybe it's because I was looking at her new book coming out soon.

I wanted this museum print so bad, I had 3 family members bidding on it during a vacation.  It cost me our grocery budget for the week.

I have a whole pinterest board with HR pins of fun small pieced quilts but most of them take away from her artistic designs.

Then, when I recently saw this quilt that I made several years back, I realized it would make a fun HR quilt, show-casing her designs. 

So, those are my wip for this week.  Do you have any projects you've made with Heather's fabrics?

Freshly Pieced


  1. Nice projects. Pretty fabrics. I never worked with HR fabrics but they are pretty cute.

  2. Lovely idea for your HR stash. The Hexies look good - it will be worth it in the end!

  3. Your hexies are looking great! Yes, it is a bit tedious... But, you will be sew pleased with the results and soon forget about the pain! About the Heather Ross fabrics... I totally agree. Some prints are not meant to be cut into tiny little pieces!

  4. I've never really seen much Heather Ross fabric... I think I might have a scrap with some frogs on it. But those prints you have are simply luverly! I can't decide which one I like best, but those fishies in bag are definitely in the running!

  5. The hexies are looking great. I did a hexie project too but mine weren't at all random. They can be tedious but so worth it in the end

  6. I like the hexies. How big will it be?

  7. I haven't done hexies nor HR fabrics. Looks good though!

  8. Aren't pre cuts wonderful?? I just love me some hexies

  9. Those fabrics have me swooning! I would have saved those fabrics too--they are so pretty! I can't wait to see what you decide!

    Would love for you to stop by and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
