Indian Summer Mini Quilt & Giveaway



OK, OK ... so I  keep saying that I'll be posting more and then I disappear again.  Sorry for that.  Still trying to figure out how to fit blogging back in to my schedule.  The good news is that a lot of the time I used to spend sewing and blogging has been spent instead focusing on my health!  I completed a 10-mile run this past weekend, which was fantastic.



I was also able to work on my last project for the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang.  I was lucky enough to get to work with the new Indian Summer line by Sarah Watson for Art Gallery Fabrics, and I fell in love with it.  I decided to make a mini quilt to show off some of the adorable prints and also to share my no-handwork, no-hassle hexagon technique.  You can find the project on the Art Gallery Fabrics blog today.


And to celebrate the release of the project, Art Gallery Fabrics will send one lucky reader their very own bundle of Indian Summer fabrics!  Simply leave a comment on this post letting me know if you've ever sewn a project with hexagons, and what your experience was like.

As with all AGF Fat Quarter Gang giveaways, you must follow Art Gallery Fabrics on your favorite social media platform (PinterestFacebook, or Twitter). Subscribe to the AGF blog to stay up to date on all things AGF & the Fat Quarter Gang!



If you make an Indian Summer mini quilt, I'd love to see it.  Be sure to add it both to the Quilt Dad is my Homeboy and Art Gallery Fabrics Flickr groups.

Winners of the last two giveaways will be posted later today!

  3. I have my eye on Indian Summer, it's beautiful! Love your quilt, and the way you make your hexies. That must save a lot of time :-)

  4. Ha, my first and only hexie project isn't finished yet. I started it during Tacha's class at FQSR in London :o) Handiwork is not MY business ;o)))

  5. I have sewn a number of hexagon quilts by machine and I always have my EPP hexie charm quilt waiting for when I want to do some hand work. Love Indian Summer. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Wow excellent work on the 10 mile run!!

    I have never worked with hexies before.

  10. Hexagons seems to always appear in my EPP projects. I love them. Right now I'm making hexagons out of star in some lovely Liberty fabric. I want to mix the stars with some of the hexalong blocks. It's a slow moving project but it will turn out great.

    The Indian summer line is fantastic - thank you for the opportunity to win...

  11. I did some hexis last year on a Block of the Month. Would like to come up with a little hexagon hand piecing kit for a friend who is recovering from a broken leg and has limited mobility. Thanks for giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have been a little hexie-obsessed lately. I made a queen-sized EPP hexagon quilt and now I am making a 3/4-inch hexagon of every fabric that passes through my hands. I am planning to make a super scrappy lap-quilt with those, but it is a long-term project! Thanks for the chance to win - I follow AGF in every way possible.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love to make EPP hexagons, but once I put them together, the project usually falls apart, so I have boxes of basted hexagons I usually give away to people! Someday I'll make one! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I follow AGF on FB. Congrats on the 10 mile run. :) I've not done any hexie projects as of yet. Someday...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have started two projects,a pillow and I am not sure what the second one will be yet but have finisher neither one. I love hexies and seeing what people have made with them, I just can't seem to get a finished product.
    I love your mini quilt, the different sized hexies just add so much to it. That is a great collection of fabric, would love to win some.
    Congrats on the 10 mile run, that is great, you should be proud!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am sewing my very first hexagon project right now - giant hexagons made form a layer cake. So far I have them cut and marked, sewing starts today! If the process isn't terrible I plan on making a hexagon quilt as a wedding gift.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am working on a hexie project now, english handpiecing. It is a nice project that stays in my purse and is helping me killing time on airports, at trains etc. Never tried machine piecing them.

    Nice project and thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've never sewn with hexagons, but I hope to do so soon!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I had pieced & quilted a large Grandmother's Flower Garden just a couple of years ago & it happily resides on my bed. I loved the piecing but it was like a puzzle to put the blocks together. Would love to do another more updated hexagon project & these beautiful fabrics would do nicely. I am already a follower of Art Gallery Fabrics on facebook. Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I did a few hexagons for a mug rug a while back and plan to do a quilt with some when I finish my to do list.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have sewn with hexagons but mine have all been with english paper piecing. I like doing handwork. thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I did mini hexi flowers to appliqué on a quilt, they were sooooo cute. Now I'm doing some big hexis, but using glue pen to hold in place while I hand sew then together. For some reason I hate basting and then ripping the basting out later .....
    Love the fabric! Thnks

    ReplyDelete
  23. Last summer I sewed my first-ever quilt, in this pattern - http://imagingermonkey.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/tie-me-up-tutorial.html. It was too big (or my apartment was too small) to spread out flat anywhere, so it came out a little crooked! By the way, I was just talking about male sewers (sewists?) with a friend and he suggested the title "seamsters"!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have some hexies made for projects that I have in mind, but no finishes yet. I like to make them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh that's a good use of them! I'm currently in the middle of paper piecing a 1" hexagon lap quilt - I think I'll be done in a year or so at the rate I'm going, but it's a great traveling/doctors office project!
    I love Indian Summer too, this morning I started putting together a pencil pouch with some patchwork bits from the line, thank you so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've never sewn hexagons beyond the two English Paper Piecing ones that we did at a Triad Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I do love the look though! Glad to "see" you again!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congratulations on the 10-mile run! That's awesome! I just started my very first hexagon quilt last night, using 1-inch hexagons. This will be MY quilt, so no deadline, just working on it as I sit and watch TV and surf blogs. I love it so far, and can definitely see how it can be addicting. I blogged about it, so now I'll be held accountable because people will be asking me "whatever happened to that hexagon quilt?" So I HAVE to finish it! Love the Indian Summer fabric! Thanks for the chance to win :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. My first hexagon project was my first foray into quilting, and its still not finished! I would love to win this bundle as i have big plans for this line.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Not yet! I'm new to quilting and I have to admit, the idea of hexagons and the like, and paper piecing scare me silly! They are both however on my to do list this year! Even if it's only a placemat I WILL do a hexagon pattern! I've already planned it out, I've just gotta actually DO it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Surprisingly enough, I have not attempted a hexie project and I hear it is addicting... one day soon and I think that I will first try a small project for quick satisfaction!

    ReplyDelete
  31. So cute! I'm still doing hexagons "the hard way," I think, but I don't mind. Congrats on your 10-mile!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have never done anything with hexies, but will eventually! ;-) I follow TAG blog and Pinterest!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have never sewn anything with hexagons. They scare me a bit.

  34. Hexagons are scary, but i love them whan someone else does them!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never attempted hexagons, but I do have a hexie quilt on my to-do list. It uses a half-hexagon piecing pattern. Should be interesting...if I ever get around to it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have not made a hexi quilt, but I have purchased a template and pattern to make one. Does that count? Congratulations on your 10 mile!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I haven't yet, but I am planning one for this summer. I bought some of the hexie precuts from Moda in white and I plant to cut some others from my stash. Congrats on you run. My hubby was in that race too. Don't you love the tarheel medal?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I haven't tried hexagons yet, but really love your quilt! Thanks for the tutorial! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. So far, not feelin' the hexie love...maybe one day.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The closest I've gotten to a hexie project is buying precut templets. I find the whole idea overwhelming. Thanks for the great fabric giveaway. I love Indian Summer.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I just took a class with Mickey Depre about pieced hexies! I actually stitched a rosette by hand! Call the newspapers!

    ReplyDelete
  55. good for you. glad you are taking care of yourself.

  56. I've never tried hexagons but I'm seeing so many delightful hexie quilts on the internet (including yours) that I'm inspired to try one! Thanks for the fabric giveaway and for your inspiring blog. I follow Art gallery on twitter and via email.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was at a quilt store about a month ago and they showed me how to do hexagons like this! Love your mini quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Congratulations on your run, that's terrific!!
    I really like the mini quilt.
    Hexagons, hmmm ... I'm on year #3 of a grandmothers flower garden. One day.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I tried to make English Paper Pieced hexagons and well . . . bleh . . . no fun for me. I love your idea of making a background and then sewing them onto it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Congratulations on 10K - that is amazing! It is good to have you back on the blog though! I love your mini quilt and a different way of doing hexies :-) I follow AGF on FB (Deborah Gunthorpe) and follow their blog by email.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've never finished a hexagon project, but I started English paper-piecing a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt last year, and pull it out to work on every so often. I'm thinking, at this rate, I'll have it finished by the time I retire. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  62. No hexies for me. At least not in the forseeable future. It isn't my favorite graphic, and they seem like a pain on top of that. They are - however - cuter when someone else does them than when I think about doing them myself, lol. Liking the Indian Summer line, thanks for the chance to win! itsdrucilla(at)yahoo(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have not done a full hexie project yet! It's on my sewing bucket list... Just keeps getting bumped bc I'm intimidated :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've done a couple of hexi minis, but not a full size. Not a fan of handwork!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm very slowly making EPP hexies in modern florals. I'm quite satisfied with the slow pace, as I'm gathering fabric I really, really like with very specific design elements. Recently I saw a hexie quilt in a frame (in Primitive Quilts, of all places) and it made me think that I can scale down my plan and eventually finish this project. So, it's been good in every way that matters to me.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congrats on the run! 10 miles is a big deal!

    Indian Summer is my favorite line ever! I already made two big quilt tops with it and still have scraps to play with. Usually I give leftovers away because scraps have a way of asking ver, but I'm not parting with these! I follow in Google Reader.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Never played with hexies but I think they are lovely. Maybe after I master that paper piecing. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Many moons ago I made a hexagon EPP cushion, never done anything since. Against your no-handwork rule I'm thinking of starting a tumbling block EPP project so I have something to do those times I can't be with my machine! Love this idea for a quilt though, thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  69. No. But I have a baggie of vintage 1" hexagons that I found in a scrap fabric box I purchased at an estate sale. So very small. So very intimidating.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Love the mini quilt! I've not sewn with hexes before but would like to, I reckon a a small project like this would be the perfect intro. Thanks for the tutorial & for the chance to win these gorgeous fabrics - I follow AGF on Twitter & subscribe to their blog.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love the quilt! I have not done a heir quilt yet, but am so redy with templates, papers, etc., then comes a new way. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  73. This looks great! love hexies! Thanks for the tuto!

  74. I love the look of hexies but have never tried to make any. It is one of those things on my bucket list that seems to be about the length of six football fields by now.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I've made a Hexagon Park quilt recently that still needs binding and finishing, I have to say it was a little tricky but I loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I've never used hexagons in my quilting. It looks too hard!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I just found hexagons I'd made when I was 15 at my parents house. They've just been sewn into some new pincushions :) I've yet to put hexies in a quilt, but big plans are in the pipeline!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. i've never done a hezie project but one day

    ReplyDelete
  82. Congratulations on running the 10K! My brother took up running a few years ago and now LOVES it. I called him on Sunday and his wife said he was busy lying in a tub filled with ice after running a 10K. LOL I have also taken a step back from blogging so I can focus on being present in my own life.

    I've never done hexagons on the machine, but have two hexagon quilt WIPs that I'm doing via EPP.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I follow AGF everywhere.

  83. Good for you to take care of your health (not so good for us at times). I am a follower to AGF. I'm trying to get into hexies but have too many other things I'm working on. Thanks, though, for showing an easy way to use them.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love the look of hexagons, but haven't tried them yet. Great mini quilt, I love this line of fabric! I follow art gallery on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Really sweet quilt ~ love the how the hexagons are done appliqued not pieced.
    I have done a hexagon quilt ~ it has 940 or so 1 1/2" hexagons all sewn together by hand and it's all scrappy too. Love doing hand work.
    I also follow AFG.
    Congratulations on the 10 mile run!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Congratulations on your new health program! I was late in life getting on my own program but I learned that it's never too late. At 52 I feel 30. At 30 I felt 50. Life is good but probably not good enough to make a hexagon quilt. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am really in love with the Indian Summer fabric. My only experience with hexagons was a sampler quilt that I made years ago. I will have to try them again.

    ReplyDelete
  88. hmm... this looks very do-able! love the fabric, too - it seems to work well at several scales!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I made a little hexagon pincushion a while ago because im not fully ready to tackle a quilt, lol.
    It was fun!
    Cool fabrics! :)

  90. I have two different projects for which I've cut out the hexies, but I haven't basted them - because I just don't want to. I'm going to try your method - makes sense to me!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm still working on Katy Jones' Hexy Quilt Along. I love making hexagons and as soon as this is done, I look forward to another EPP project.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I currently machine piecing a hexagon quilt (all hexagons)and finding it pretty fussy to do. Your quilt looks much easier (and very nice looking too)

  93. I have never done hexies. I see them and love them, and think, someday I too will do a hexie quilt or at the very least a table topper.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Lovely to see you back in blog land. I saw your quilt pop up on the Art Gallery blog in my blog feed earlier and loved it before ever I read about it. My only experience with hexies so far has been to applique them as centrepieces on dresden plates. I do want to try a nice EPP project with hexies - I'm thinking that should be something nicely portable and fun to try during the summer holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I have a box of EPP hexies that I'm still mulling over . . .I think it'll be turned into some sort of quilt at some point!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm seriously loving Sarah's new collection. The soft oranges and turquoise are just gorgeous. I love the idea of applique-ing hexies to a pieces background and you have a lovely finish there.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love hexies! I machine pieced hexagons, paper pieced hexagons and use hexagons as appliques. I didn't try all the methods of sewing it so far, but for sure I will:)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I made some projects with hexies but only epp. Would love to get the Indian Summer fabrics :)

  100. I haven't made a project yet, I'm still just making the hexies. Someday when I'm 90 I might finish it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have made lots of hexagon projects..small paper pieced doll quilts, paper pieced coin purses, larger machine pieced quilts and quilts that were sections of a hexagon pieced together. I am a follower of Art Gallery Fabrics on Facebook and receive their newsletter.

    ReplyDelete
  102. i love hexagons and that line is really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I never have, too intimidating for me! Maybe one day.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I've avoided hexagons as I'm nut always so patient with detail/hand/fussy work...

    ReplyDelete
  105. No, but I really want to. Maybe this bundle would be the inspiration I need to dive in!! Thanks, and congratulations on the run-

    ReplyDelete
  106. Hexies were not in my future til I saw your mini
    quilt, now that I can get into- it really stars
    that fabric. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  107. I finished someone's stack n' whack UFO - it used pieced hexagons. Now, I have part of a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt started -- I will work more on it but doubt can finish before I pass. That is the aggravating part - knowing I cannot finish it despite enjoying making all those double hexie flowers.

  111. I just started making hexies last summer. I loved it! I made a bunch of them and then had to start sewing them together. That part sucked. So I made a little table toper for a friend and the rest are sitting in a little glass jar. :P

    ReplyDelete
  112. I am yet to sew with hexies. Looking forward to it though.

  122. I sewed some hex coasters using the EPP method and I loved them. I want to make some more. They're kind of addictive.

    ReplyDelete
  123. hexagons....my latest project is admiring them on other people's blogs. I'd like to say I'd like to try them - but at this point, they are not on my horizon! does that discount me from entering the giveaway?

    ReplyDelete
  124. I top stitches some Simply Color hexies on to a pillow for a swap. It was fun. Then I joined a hexagon bee and it is a lot more hand sewing than I anticipated!

    ReplyDelete

  127. Love the look of hexies but they scare me a little. I love all of the collections from AGF!

    ReplyDelete
  128. My first hexies were 10mm hexies. Yes I know I am mad but I only had to make a small collection of them in red and white fabrics to form the cloth of a patchwork skirt for a redwork hand stitched Angel wall hanging for my mum for Christmas... Outcome being that they look beautiful but were very tricky to work with.

  143. I love making hexagons! I use most of my scraps, create hexagons then use them for other projects... great to take along anywhere.

  144. I have never done hexagons but your project looks cool and easy so maybe I'll have to give it a try. Nice fabrics too!

  145. Health is important don't apologize. Love your blog and I only make it here now and then but I am always interested in the post. I think it is amazing that people are so skilled to make quilts like this.

  146. Good for you for looking after your health, especially when you've got three little ones to look after and keep up with.

  147. I was looking at mini projects and came across yours today. I'd like to make a Halloween inspired hexie mini quilt. Your quilt has given me inspiration to do 2 things I haven't tried yet. Mini and hexies on the same project. :)

  148. My very first quilt was made of English pieced hexies...at the age of 14. With Laura Ashley fabrics no less. All we could get in Oxford. Makes me shudder to think of it. Glad to see you back. I've missed your blog. And your wry sense of humor.
