Hexies Pixies

I had fun this past week. Every time I said Hexies Pixies, a hexie diamond would appear.

Just like that!! Hexies Pixies ...

A witch would say Hocus Pocus because that's HER thing. Since I am a quilter MY thing is Hexies Pixies ...

This is so much fun ... Hexies Pixies ...

Ooops!  Maybe I didn't say it loud enough! Let's try that one again. Hexies PIXIES.

Ah better !!  All 9 diamonds are finished and that means another row is completed. YEAH !!

Now the chore pain headache fun of choosing the fabric for the next row. All the fabrics for the diamonds have all been picked out already. I only need to find the colour for the middle.

So, let's see!! Hmmm ...

I like this 

ok ... I guess

Good Lord, what was I thinking ?? 



Yep, this will be it. I love this fabric so much I should have bought the bolt!!

When the weather is this hot, 26oC (feels like 37 oC with the humidity), it is very easy to take things slow and to relax. My project today is to attach all those Hexies Pixies to the quilt ... sitting in my cool basement.

Later, I'll grab a glass of icy lemonade and check out all the links to wonderful projects slowly progressing on Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. How about you? How do you cope with a heat wave??

Also joining Angie at A Quilting Reader's Garden for WIP's Be Gone

Until next time ....



  1. Fun to audition fabrics that way!

  2. Si j'écris Hocus Pocus ! .....ça marche ? Est-ce que d'autres hexies sont apparus chez toi ?
    En tout cas, tu as fait le bon choix pour le tissu du centre avec la petite fleur bleue...
    Bonne continuation et gros bisous Chantal !

  3. Oh how pretty! A perfect way to enjoy the heat!

  4. haha... what a clever hexie pexie hocus pocus trick... love your final choice of fabric

  5. I kept wanting to say 'Gesundheit'...
    I love auditioning fabrics for a block! That last print really is gorgeous.

  6. You had me smiling Chantal. That last fabric you auditioned is lovely.

  7. great way to audition. what cute little hexies

  8. What fabulous auditions ... I love that first blue floral, fussy cut to include the flowers. But that last fabric ... so delightful! Is it too late to find more, since you didn't buy the entire bolt? ;-)

  9. Lovely hexies! I am so going to try the magic spell and see what happens!!!

  10. Love the Hexie Pexie and bam - more diamonds. I think you made the right choice for the middle =). We have months of heat so I hold up in the air conditioned house and play with fabric.

  11. I shall try saying Hexie Pexie too, just to see if mine will grow any faster! No, it doesn't have to go faster it's a S-L-O-W project! I like your choice for the next row: very elegant.

  12. I like the way you auditioned the fabrics, but I think I like the first one the best. Then again, you have to please only yourself. It is hot here too. Thank goodness for air-conditioning.

  13. Yep, that was my choice too - goes beautifully with the blue. What a lot of nice hexies! Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes, things happen and it just make you smile. I have such a smile today. Remember me talking about my newly made thread-catcher? ...
