Hexagon Friday...

After my little set back last week I have managed to redo a lot of the
de-constructed hexies and I have completed my very first triangle block.  WooHoo!
Looks mighty fine when all the hexies are the same size!!  
(this measures 14" long x 8¾" wide)
I have made a final decision on the exact pattern I will be working on while I baste these gazillion hexies.  I have a Pinterest board for Hexies and I've been gathering inspiration pins for awhile now.  I fell in love with a quilt called 'Insanity'.  And I also really like this one (no name).  But I realized I don't have enough decades left to make them both sooooo I've decided I will merge them together to make my own design.  I really like the borders on the Insanity but I love the center of the other quilt.  
So that is my goal .... two....two .... two quilts in one!   
And as I go along I'm sure I'll think of a name.  Right now I'm a blank.  Any suggestions??

  I'll be linking over on A Quilting Reader's Garden.   And also links over to BillieBee's
If you love hexies .... come along and join us.   

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda


  1. WOW!! - You ARE ambitious!! - This gives a whole new meaning to "Borders on Insanity" - haha. And you're right - stuff does tend to fit better when they are all the same size - ;))

    1. HAHA Now that's a cute name! I'm putting it on my list.
      Now I don't know about ambitious... but it will give me something to do for the rest of my life. hahaha

    1. Thanks Billie. I was going to link to A quilting Reader's Garden but she doesn't seem to have the post ready. Bummer!
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

  3. Love your hexie block - the colors are cheerful but soothing. I'll have to go over and see those two quilts. And thanks for linking to Hexie Friday! I was late but got it posted today. Ah, life!

    1. Thanks Angie. I feel like I have a good start. Only a few for Trillion to go! hahaha
      I love linky's so thanks for your time to post one. And it's always better late than never ... my grandma used to say. ;o)

  4. Oh, wow! That's going to take a few hexies to finish. I like the name Borders on Insanity - a good mix.

    1. I know!!! I wonder if there are enough hexie papers in the world? heehee

  5. Whoa, I just saw the insanity quilt. It is awesome. I wonder how long it took her.

    1. I know!! Isn't it just unbelievable? I can't even pretend to guess how long she worked on it. I'm just hoping I can come close to getting finished with mine. lol
