Snowflake report


Second round is finished. It´s totaly  263 hexies, it means 136 new ones from last week. I like the result, it could be repeated as a big block, but my pattern needs one more blue row.


My June hexies

A bit late, this is a report on my hexies made in June.

This month I managed to sew four stars.




















My La Passion passed 2400 hexagons, and I'm so happy with this. Just now we are more that 250 persons from around the world sewing Grit's pattern.





















Six more butterflies joined the others on this half hexie quilt.

















This miniquilt is a summer work, and it got four new flowers in June. The hexagons are 1/4", really tiny.
























You can always find more about these hexie projects on my blog.

It is coming together

Here is the progress of my hexagon quilt. I decided to start putting my diamonds together.  I have about 13 diamonds, several center flowers, and several small rows of cream all ready to be sewn into this quilt.

Snowflake report

Her I am with my Monday report. I managed to make 90 hexagons (10 behind my limit). The fabrics is a special cotton with the shiny pattern in the waves. We call it Damask here and it ´s often used for bed linen. Not very good for hand piecing, but I have plenty bought by weight at our local shop. The pattern is from pinterest and it´s Koch snowflake curves. Puce science, I think :). See you next week, I´m cutting next ones.

Hexagon Pincushion Tutorial

If you haven't visited Bonnie Hunter's site, you have missed lots of good quilt patterns, books and ideas. Many of them are free, such as the hexagon pincushion I've linked here. Bonnie's pictures make her tutorials easy for any level of quilter to follow. This tutorial is not about how to do the hexagons, but about how to make the pincushion. That's okay, we all know how to make the hexagons, right?

Bonnie mentioned in her post that they would make great mug rugs, too. I'm sure you can think of many ways to use hexagons made into blocks like this. Have fun, and investigate all the other wonderful things on Bonnie's site, too.

June Review

Did I do it?? Yes I did even if I didn't count the flowers appliqued to the block. So here are my June flowers. One hour per flower plus one hour per block.

Here is 4 hours for my second block.

 


My third block- 4 more hours.

 

My fourth block for another 4 hours.



















So 12 hours of EPP hexie flower delight even if I counted just the flowers I did 9 of them for 9 hours.
I did it!

Snowflake

Well, hollidays begin and this is the best time to make hexa-snowflake. It´s my new summer project. I have white and blue cotton so it is two-colours project. This is the center and I really want to make 100 hexies every week. I am going to post wip report every Monday. Still no idea about the pattern, but I hope to finish all quilt till winter.
