LAST DAY OF BLOG HOP!


MY TURN!!

When I started planning this Blog Hop a couple of months ago, I decided to shoot for the stars. What did I have to lose? So I e-mailed some big time quilting stars to see if they would participate. I was thrilled when every single person I asked agreed to take part. Thanks so much to them all, and thanks to all of you who have hopped along with us! The outpouring of comments on all the blogs has been fabulous! And some of my star blog hoppers are now addicted to making hexies the QUICK AND EASY WAY!!!!

Peggy and I had so much fun writing this book together! We really LOVE this method of making hexies from circles of fabric and I don't think I'll EVER stop designing hexie quilts.

You might have noticed by now that I have TWO blogs. Why?

I've had the greenQuilts blog for several years. I love to share the projects I'm working on and other tidbits of my life. When I jumped on the hexie train, I decided to start The Hexie Blog, making it a place for us all to share hexie projects. If you've made any hexie projects, please let me know (I don't care what technique you use!) so I can put it out there on the blog.




So are you ready for the FINAL GIVEAWAY???? I'm giving away an autographed copy of Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts PLUS an Accuquilt Go! Baby along with a circle die that cuts three different sizes of circles! I KNOW! Amazing, huh?

How to enter:
Leave a comment on this blog and/or the greenQuilts blog. For extra chances, become a Follower of both blogs. So you can get a maximum of FOUR chances if you leave a comment on both blogs and become a follower of both blogs.

Since this is a mighty big prize, I'm leaving it open until 8 am Central Time Friday, June14th.
Good luck!!!

    NOTE:
    There is something amiss with entering comments. I enter, the comment says it posts, I return to the blog to check, there is no comment. I add the blog to BlogLovin' list, the confirmation message says Following, I leave the page, return, no bloglovin. Plus, GFC will never display so can add google friend connect following. So, I'm going to assume that between bloglovin, and email feedblitz/feedburner, that I'm following you ... because I am getting email from thehexieblog.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Lovely. Hexies are intimidating for me. The odd shape looks likes something that would force me to fiddle with one side for hours to get it perfect. (cuse ofc they HAVE to be perfect.)I'm ready for a book that makes things quick and easy.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thanks for the great hop and giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  74. your way of making hexies is intriguing. can't figure out how you do it, must have the book, lol

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think everyone previously has said what I think. Hexies reign supreme!! I taught myself patchwork and guess what the first thing I made - hexagons? I do other forms of patchwork now, but I still go back to hexagons.
