First, a shout out to all of the Daytona Beach show go-ers!! GREAT to see so many at the show and appreciate my new and repeat customers! I had a great time talking about Hexies in the Learning Center. Thank you all for coming and your support!! I got a number of requests for videos of my tips….must put this on my to-do list…!!
“Hex-a-ma-jig” and “Hex-a-ma-jig Jr.” are getting a lot of love. Did you know I have a “free pattern” on my website for “Two Halves Make a Whole Quilt”? The directions are geared for “Junior” and a “jelly roll” but by using larger, 3 1/2″ strips you can make the same quilt. Sew much fun!
My friend Faye has been busy again using “Hex” and “Junior” (yes, easier to shorten their names <grin>!!). Here is the size difference for a braid style quilt adding a sashing strip between each half hexie shape.
Love them! Thank you Faye!! A perfect technique to make a quick table runner. Have you ever made a braid quilt? Both Hexie tools and Brilliant Bindings can be used to create a braid. The free pattern for a Simple Braid using Brilliant Bindings is also on my website. Check it out!
Since I’m a day behind, I’ll keep the tips short and sweet.
#1 – It is National Quilting Day on March 16th!! Plan to do something with your quilty friends!
#2 – Chocolate…a day with sewing and quilting must include chocolate! Unless you are allergic….this I think it requires wine!
And I just realized my tips are “sweet”, teehee!
