Hexagons and Giveaway

In my continuing quest to find any art I may be able to do during my recovery I have discovered many limitations. While cutting out these small hexagons, first with scissors and then rotary cutter, I was pushing and moving in ways I shouldn’t have been. Oh, boy, did I suffer the following day. Lesson learned.

Anyway, this is what I made. Thanks to my funky embroidery hoop stand (made from a broken lamp, it has been a great stand and the price was right!), I was able to do a bit of embroidery on the (raw edge) hexagons to hold them. I would have liked to embroider around the all the edges but sadly I couldn’t. They’re far from perfect and fraying but I’m fine with that.

I used a glue stick to hold them in place, which didn’t work very well. I didn’t have applique glue and I knew I wouldn’t be able to embroider through fusible at this time.

I’ll be seeing if I can still paint fabric and let you know how that goes.

The giveaway… A box of colorful hexagon patches – at least 200. They are approximately 1.75 inches side to side, 2 inches point to point, and each side is 1 inch.

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.


  1. I’d like to win the hexagons. I know I could find a project for them. Thank you!

  2. I have arthritic hands that make cutting fabric painful. I would love to win the hexagon patches and try out a new pattern! Thanks! Cheri Murrell

  3. Dear Ann,
    You must have read my mind! I was just looking at a hexi project last night! ( I’ve made one- a cool pillow), and saw a picture of a very interesting one (The last homely home east of the sea), and realized my fingers were itching for some handwork! Would love to win your stash.
    Your adaptive embroidery hoop from a broken lamp would make any crafter, and Occupational Therapist proud.
    You seem to be hanging in there!
    Hope the recovery continues smoothly,

  4. I would love those hexagons, think they would go with some I’m making. Thanks for making them available. Always enjoy your posts!

  5. Hello Ann, I’ve always wanted to make something with little hexies, but have never actually done it. I would love to win your colorful collection and finally make something wonderful with them. Thank you. Sylvia W.

  6. I have been working on a hexi quilt for quite some time. I make so many and then take a bit of time off. These hexis would be a great addition to what I already have! Thank you

  7. I would love to win your wonderful hexies. I have been practicing my seaming for EPP, and I have had my eye on some hexie projects.

    Take care, Nancy

  8. Ann–I know it’s hard to be idle when you are aching to create, but you’ll never get back to your regular pursuits if you don’t step back and let that hand heal. ‘Nuff said. Love looking at your colorful hexies, but will pass on entering the drawing. I don’t do much handwork, but when I do, embroidery is my “go to” activity.

  9. Hello Ann, I found this blog while searching instruction for butted end quilt binding for my very first quilt.

    I would love to win the hexagons!

    I have four granddaughters, three of whom have started learning to stitch. The oldest at 10 years old salvaged my moth nibbled cashmere sweater repurposing them into stuffed bunnies for a child’s craft fair. She looks at a piece of fabric and makes clothing for her dolls without a pattern. She is working on an embroidery sampler. She is very creative – I do almost everything via pattern. I would love to share these pieces with her.

  10. I love that, thank you for sharing and bravo to your granddaughters especially the 10 year old!
    I hope the butted corner binding video was helpful and congratulations on making your first quilt! You’re entered in the hexagon giveaway.
