Miami vice hexies

Sorry, no Crockett and Tubbs shots here - I just got into the habit of calling this unfinished quilt 'Miami Vice'.

When I have finished quilting my other little charity quilt, this one is next on the list. It is made with Oakshott cottons and I love the simplicity of it. 

I have been thinking about my Tula Pink hexies and my anxiety about doing hand applique. Adrianne gave me some helpful advice which I am going to try out, but decided it was sensible to start small. I made a few hexies a while back with some of the Miami Vice quilt fabric. I never really loved them, and finally realised that it was their centres that were bothering me.

Once I've finished changing the centres, I'm going to see if I can manage a modest cushion :-)


  1. The hexies are SO cute. They will match your lovely quilt.

  2. love these new centred hexies :-)

  3. Love the hexies. I really need to try one day!

  4. Soo very miami vice and totally brilliant at the same time. I love it!

  5. I think your all solid colour scheme is lovely (and the "potential" hexi cushion will compliment the quilt top really well! ) L
