A Place to Share Our Photos!

Forgive me for taking so long to find a way for us all to upload photos for the group - I'm new at this kind of thing! :)

I've created a Yahoo group - that way everyone can upload their photos and ask questions. Of course you can alway leave comments on the blog, too! But this will be a great way to share photos and get to know one another.

To subscribe to the group, go here:

Another question I was asked is how big is the final quilt going to be?

1. We'll have 12 blocks measuring 15" x 15".  I plan to arrange them 3 blocks across and 4 blocks down.
2. I'm planning to add 3" sashing between the blocks. I like the sashing to be a multiple of the block size so 3" (finished size) will be perfect.
3. I'm planning to add a 5" border to my quilt (again a multiple of 15).
4. That will make the final quilt measure 67" x 85" (if I did the math correctly!)

All that being said, this is YOUR quilt. You may choose to use no sashing or a different size sashing. Or you may choose to arrange you blocks differently. But that's what I'm planning!

Happy Hexies!
