Absolutely love those names, I might have to get you to name all my quilts in future, lol.
Those blocks are absolutely stunning, every last one of them!!!!

Mandalin said...

Girl, your on fire!! I haven't seen anything half as scrumptious as these in a long while! I need to do one myself, fancy coming up for needle, nibble and natter soon?

Patchwork and Play said...

Oh, these are glorious! And they even have the cutest of names.... If I had to pick a favourite it would be Frous Frou Fleur or CocoCoconut Ice! Just beautiful!

These are great, I love the toile fabrics and how with each block the large print is highlighted so so derfully. I gotta make this one. What size are the little hexies that you are using?

Ann Marie said...

Gorgeous blocks! I have trouble naming my quilts and can't imagine naming all the blocks too. But I guess they take awhile and you know them too well by the time they are finished not to know their personalities well enough for a name. Can't wait to see the finished top and what you name it.

heartsofhampshire said...

absolutely amazing- you really should give us a tutorial on your exquisite fussy cutting- your colour combinations and pattern repeats are wonderful- I am a little green with envy for such skill! Lokk forward to more!

Sasha said...

These are absolutely gorgeous!!! I love all of the fussy cut centers. The names are so perfect and so cute!!! I can't even pick a favorite. They are all so lovely!!

Nifty Quilts said...

Oh my goodness! These are all little masterpieces. Plus, they look like a lot of fun to make.

regan said...

Oh oh oh! Your fussy cutting is simple fantastic! I can't get over how amazing these blocks are! Fan Dance and FrouFrou Fleur are incredible with the 3 blocks creating a beautiful petal! But then I look at Chocolate Coated Rosy Posey and Candy Bon Bon, and the framing those 3 blocks create on the sides......it's AWESOME! I also love the inner border of Calypso Dreams.....wonderful! Of course, I'm totally in love with the stripes, too! Sheesh!.... There's just something to love about each and every one.....and especially the centers! This is going to be another masterpiece, Rachael! It is totally fabulous in every way! Oh, and I love the names, too! :O)

Rachael!! I'm drooling all over the keyboard. I can't pick a favorite. They're all so beautiful! And you're outdone yourself with the names.

I'm determined to carve out some time to play with my hexie stacks and start sewing them together. These are so inspirational!

The block are stunning and the names remind me of heart shaped choclate boxes tied wit beautiful ribbon. Not like my usual celophane bag of licorice allsorts.

Hi Friend!
I loved your hexies and the cute names for them. You are too fun.

How are you setting them?

Donna~~ said...

Very pretty hexies!

MulticoloredPieces said...

Hi, Rachael. I've never seen hexies like these! The way you framed up each center fabric is really cool. Hexies usually don't say too much to me, but these have got me thinking that there might be some interesting possibilities. Loved your Mariner's Garden quilt too--gorgeous!
best, nadia
