NEWBIE ;>)

Hello, dear hexies friends ! My name is Nadine, I'm 61, married, mother of 4 and grandmother of 2 and we're livng part time in Belgium and Spain, since our retirement last year.

I'm quilting for more than 18 years, and I'm a handpiecer/handquilter, no matter how long it takes (and, boy, it sometimes takes loooong!) My favourite quilts are the scrappy ones, with a vintage look. Of course I love EPP (aaah, those hexies!), so easily portable and with such accurate results!

As many quilter friends, I have to confess that I'm (very) easily distracted with new projects/patterns... which leads to a growing pile of UFO's! But, after all, who cares - as long as we're having fun?

Some weeks ago, however, I decided to sort out those UFO's, and I found a lovely box filled with 3/4" hexie flowers that really, really deserved coming back on my working table... When I saw this blog, while browsing through the Web, I thought it would be a good idea being part of such a cheerful, inspirational team, and so here I am now, with those hexie flowers, that I'm planning to piece without any "path" between them, in order to get that "mosaic" effect that I love so much.
Enjoy your sewing, dear friends !  Until next time ;>)

tiny hexies here looking good must have a go sometime as I recently got a set of hexies from half inch to 5 incehes and a friend is sending me more from 5.5 to 9" think the big ones will be used more at first to get going!

Welcome, Nadine. So cute hexies, and I hope you'll show us as these flowers grow to a quilt.
