Well this is the last day of the Be a Hexie Queen Blog Hop and it has been amazing. Many thanks to blog hop hostess Debby Kratovil for coordinating this wonderful blog hop. And many thanks to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt for allowing us the opportunity to have this much fun. I got a late start do to family illness and thought that I couldn't complete the blog hop. But I persevered and was able to start 2 projects from the many projects that I tagged. Both of my projects were made using tools by Debby Kratovil, our blog hostess. I used the half hexagon template and the spider web template. Both templates were beneficial in getting my projects out of my head and put together.
|Half Hexagon Template|
|Spider Web Template|
|Twisted Hexagon blocks|
My next project pays homage to the modern quilt movement. Hexagons are not just for traditional quilts. The quilt was based on a pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Company. It was made with 2-1/2 inch strips and the hexagons were pieced with Debby's Half Hexagon template ruler. The original pattern called for a piano key border, but I like the clean modern look without the borders.
So starts my love affair with hexies. I have more ideas than I have time. Here are today's participants. Enjoy visiting each blog and remember to leave a comment. Thanks for joining in the fun!!
