Oh my Gourd - Hexies for Halloween

Hello out there - I thought I'd share a little liberated quilt that I made years ago.  It was part of my Mary's collection.
I machine quilted it in a wiggly cross hatch.
I finished my Halloween Hex runner top just in time for my visit the Centreville Quilters in VA.  I'm presenting a lecture/truck show and my Hex workshop this Thursday and Friday and meeting my blog friend, Aunt Reen!
Wee! Here are some Halloween hexies made by my friend, Betsy in NJ.  She took my workshop a while back and is still making blocks.
 Here is Barb's from my workshop - I love her mix of prints and colors.
 Barb also made this little one.  I like how she arranged the blocks here.
This is such a fun workshop to teach and I love seeing finished projects.  If you have a finished project please send me a photo or post to my FunWithBarb Facebook Page here.
I made a few more basket blocks.  I love picking just 2 fabrics at a time.

Have a Wonderful Week~

  1. It's a fun workshop, Barb. Some of us are just slower to finish than others (ahem).

  2. I love all things Halloween - your liberated jack-o-lantern and hexie table runner are great! Thanks for all the hexie inspiration; now I want to go cut up Halloween fabrics in addition to my flamingoes! Have fun in Virginia! I would love a trip to VA right about now, cool weather and fabulous fall foliage (we lived down the road in Charlottesville for several years).

  6. Love the wiggly crosshatch quilting. Halloween quilts are fun. Time to get out my witches and bats.
    I've not been infected with hexes but hear it produces six-sided symptoms (insert groan here)!

  9. The hexies are a wonderful shape to highlight a theme and do some fun fussy cutting. Cocoa makes a great model. Have fun with Doreen. She's a real sweetie.

  10. I love the halloween hexie table runner. The gourd mini is so sweet and I love his wonky cross hatch quilting. Your basket blocks are great too. Yes, choosing just two fabrics at a time can be so much fun.

  12. I always expect to see fun things here at Halloween time, and you did not disappoint.
    And Coco really looks hyped up for the holiday--NOT.
    I think I can hear her saying, "Seriously, you're making me do this?" :)
