QuiltCon Hexagons

Our beloved hexagons made a respectable showing at QuiltCon in Austin this year. I didn’t go, but several friends sent me either their photos or blog posts with photos, so here are some I saw.

Photos and credits for first two, which are prize winners, from Christa Quilts.

Miniature 1st Place – Modern Challenge by Catherine Redford, Naperville, Illinois

Handwork, Small 1st Place – Modern Mini by Carolyn Braun, Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey

I’m not sure where I found this one, and I don’t have any information about it. If you see something, let me know. I love it and would like to credit the maker, at least.


Color Me Quilty caught the edge of this one when she was taking a photo of a different quilt behind it. I can’t get the label quite large enough to read who made it, but the quilting is very visible and looks fabulous! Millefiori style.


Found on the The Modern Quilt Guild site: “Geometric Rainbow by Nicole Daksiewicz. This quilt uses EVERY color from the Kona solids collection — all 303 of them.”


Not bad, eh?

    Thanks! Always fun to see hexies. Now tell me what makes that quilt millefiori like – I love it but am new to the concept.

    Hexification rules!!

  3. yES, Thanks for Sharing! Great quilts all but the one with the colour wheel and the one that uses all the Kona Colours I find very compelling – Oh and I have to love the Millefiore too!! but each is special in it’s own way!! Great to see the Hexies Represented!!
