Blue and white hex quilt

This is my faithful little sew box that I use for my Blue and white hex quilt. As you can see, it has everything I need, siccors, fabric pre-cut, little wooden pegs, etc. It is the perfect little plastic box that I received free in the mail from a butter brand. It is a lunch box but I saw other purposes...
What do you use to put your WIP in?


  1. What a great idea. I use ziplock bags, and the bags you get duvet covers and the like in - with a zip all the way round. They keep things nice and tidy. Well, kind of!!!

  2. Hi! I found your blog from Katy's stash swap. I'm plannin a hexagon quilt, but don't quite know how to get started. Are you hand sewing yours?

  3. Hi Summersadie,

    yes I am handstitching mine. I precut the fabrics and I also cut out the hexagons from a plastic plate and then I stitch the fabric around the plastic and then onto eachother. If you send me you email address I will send you a picture of the back so you can see how it is sewn.

  4. Oh, that would be great! I really appreciate it. summersadie@live.com Did you make your own plastic template, or did you get one? And how are you stitching the two hex's together so that it doesn't show on the top but keeps them together good? I've done lots of machine work, but very little hand work. It kind of intimidates me.

  5. I use a cigar box. I don't smoke cigars but the fellow at the local gas station saves the nice wooden ones for me. It's perfect for the one-inch hexies.
    Have you seen the Great Hexagon Quilt Along? We'd love to have you join.


Thanks for stopping by.
