hexagon love

While finishing up the hexagon placemats for my friends Danny and Sarah, I was inspired to try hexagons again.  These little guys require so much work, but I just love making them.  This time I just did a few in a mug rug for my Aunt Judy.  I wanted to see what Anna Marie Horner’s Innocent Crush fabrics looked like in hexagon form.

I threw some linen in to make the bold colors of the fabric stand out.  Pretty happy with the result and now I’m hooked!

Here’s the back (nothing fancy):

Thanks to my aunt for all of her support.  There’s no way I’d be sewing so much and tackling such large projects without her help!

  1. Molly, thanks for the kind words. The mug rug is even more gorgeous in person…the colors and those hexagons!!! Not one pucker. Looks like you’re a pro at hexagons. And the linen does make the fabrics really stand out. I’ve always wanted to make a hexagon quilt (Grandmother’s Flower Garden) but have been afraid too which makes the mug rug even more special. Do I see a hexagon lesson in my future…please?

  2. So glad you like it!!! I would love to make a hexagon quilt too. Let’s definitely have a hexagon party next time we’re together. We can work on hexies while the rest of the family does macrame. 🙂
