Two Tip Tuesday – day late

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.

Hexie Braids by Faye P.!!!

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!

in quilting,
