to Be A Hexie Queen...thanks to you both!
It's HEXIE time and I hear there are some quilters out there
who are loving making those hexies.
For me...not so much loving it, but giving it my best shot.
I tried a couple different ways to make hexies and finally gave up
and went the easy way with the a snowball block.
Well....they look like hexies to me!
Okay, so they have eight sides...I must have been hexed and thought
there were six sides. That Other Lady will win the Hexie Queen title for sure.
One of my Monkey Boys has claimed this as his own so it will
"remind me that my birthday is at Thanksgiving."
Of course, if he wants it, he gets it! I'm a sucker for those sweet boys!
I love the little kids in this Alexander Henry "Happy Thanksgiving" fabric.
My quilt with a view.
Britt-Inger from Hill Valley Quilter sent me a hexie pattern based upon a
needle case made by her friend, Karin, but I've never been very good at
following directions. Karin's was so nice and fancy!
Mine was pretty simple, but I love it with those
Ghastlie ladies and some rhinestones to add some bling.
If you're interested in the pattern, stop by her blog to ask about it.
There's a giveaway, of course!
(By the way....Quilt Taffy has Ghastlie fabric!)
