Sunday with Flamingos

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of work-related travel.  I'm still trying to get back into my usual routine and get some sewing mojo going again.  There are quilting projects clamoring for attention, but I just haven't had the time or energy to devote to them.

I did manage to do some fussy cutting yesterday so I would have some flamingo hexies to sew up today.  These are easy to pick up and stitch when time is short or your energy level isn't up to using the sewing machine.

I did manage to stitch some hexies during my travels.  These were fun to cut, especially the mini flamingoes with the pink and green swirls!  

This project was inspired by a Hex Vex kit I bought from Barb Vedder of Fun with Barb.  She no longer sells the kit, but it wouldn't be hard to get started without it.  This link will take you to a page where she discusses her original Hex Vex quilt and shares some other examples.  It's a fun project and great opportunity to play with fussy cutting and combining fabrics.


  1. Gosh, those flamingos are sweet. Some weeks just don't seem to produce much, but prepping and doing a little bit here and there still gets quilty results. :0)

  2. Ohhh ! Every block sparkle !
    Great job Angie !!

  3. Wonderful! I just love to see the different designs form when you fussy cut the pieces.

  4. I drool over this project every time you show us some pictures. Magnificent!

  5. I can sell them, but it is usually better in a workshop. Maybe I'll add them back onto my etsy shop.

    I LOVE your theme and these are so colorful and cheerful.
