One More Week in April!

One more week in the month of April to get a post in so you won't be removed as an author of the blog. Anyone can read it, still, just not write posts on it. These are the people I have who have posted since October, 2013:

Vera (Verpa)
Marcia (Mommarock)
and me, Desertsky (Susan)

It's alright if you don't want to author on here any more, no harm, no foul. If you do, however, and your name isn't on the list, please put a post up before midnight, April 30, telling what your current hexagon project or dream is. Or three or four. I'm never one to limit myself to just one thing.

In the meantime, check out the post about this beauty by clicking on the picture. Beatrice is from Germany, I believe, but sadly doesn't seem to blog any longer.

Flowers on my design wall

This is my small collection of flowers, some with green background added on and some without.  Sorry to all, I'm not great photographer.....but this is what's going on in my Hexagon World!

Spring Wall Hanging

Did you remember my Valentine´s project with hearts? It has slowly turned into spring wall hanging quilt.  But I really like the colour combination and it´s great for Easter - Sping decoration. White areas are free motion quilted, so the flowers and the hearts are almost 3D.

The quilt was made to fit under the shelf in the dining area. It´s really yummy.

There is still one heart left, so I decided to make a simple bag with it. I´m going to share the result with you.

My newst hexy!!

Well mostly I've just been making more and more and more petals - and I've been distracted by other projects and went to a Quilt Expo in Mexico City and attended classes there on other techniques than hexagons.  Then I got pretty ill after my return.....still don't know what it is but it's playing havoc with my digestive track.....not fun!

BUT I looked in my hexagon kit and found a  flower that I don't think I've posted.  Plus I realize it's been a while since I've posted.  Then I read the most recent post about posting......so here I am to stake my claim to being part of this community!!

So I present to you a photo of my most recent flower......enjoy!

Housekeeping: Blog Writers

Hello, Everyone! My hexagons took a back seat this last couple of weeks, but I'll be back to it in time to post for next week. The autofocus on my camera is also not working, so I have no way to take a picture that isn't blurry. I am not the person who can focus the lens myself - that was my husband who could talk knowledgeably about f-stops and other gobbledegook!

I just realized that there are a number of people who haven't posted in a very long time - a year or more. Please post an update on your current hexagon project during the month of April, even if it is sort of in the UFO pile right now. Those who don't post this month, and who haven't posted since the beginning of October, 2013, will be removed as blog writers in May. Of course, the blog remains open for reading to everyone. If you are interested in joining the blog as a community member and posting here about your projects, please see the join page and leave a comment *there* not here.

Now for something pretty in the hexagon world: An Antique Hexagon Quilt from Wales. Every flower is outlined with beautifully done feather stitching. Here's just the tiniest peek, but go see a bigger view on A Quilter's Journal.

My March hexies

I'm really addicted to EPP, and I can't resist a thing as long as it's about hexies. This month I've worked on my four WIPs. And I've started a new one, and finished one thing.

This zig-zag quilt has grown with five new blocks. More about it here.

Then I made the March block from The Hexie blog. Waiting for the next block tomorrow.

La Passion grows, but very slowly. I've joined another hundred hexies to it, and now I have 2000.
You can follow the progress on this EPP on my blog, and also find links to Grit, who made this pattern.

I made another hexie bag. These are so fun to make, and I think I'll do more of them later.

My butterfly quilt grew with six blocks. Funny that this is the same pattern as the zig-zag quilt.

Then I had to try BillieBee's stars. She had tempted me for a long time now, and I couldn't resist. And I already love the stars so much that I've thought about making them in different colours. I managed to make two green ones yesterday.

Hexies are fun and relaxing, and I recommend you to try. But you're probably already hooked since you are here at Hexagon Alley. You can find more about all these projects on my blog.
