Show and Share: Hexie Pug Quilt!

It's been a whirlwind around here in Hexie Land! Last Wednesday I spoke to The Hummingbird Quilt Guild in Hogansville, GA. What fun! They are small in number, but big in attitude and talent.

One member of the group (Vallarie) sent me pictures of a hexie quilt she made in a class. I can tell it's made from half hexagons. When she finished the top, she felt it need something more - just a little something....





So she put a pug in the middle of each flower!


How cute is that?

Let sleeping pugs lie...in a hexie flower!



Thanks so much, Vallarie, for sharing this with me! 

Thursday I left with one of our daughters to drive from Alabama to Rochester, Minnesota.  We did it in three days. She's doing a Pharmacy internship at Mayo this summer. I flew home Sunday. Yes, I made lots of hexies in the car and in the airport. I happened to be seated in the MSP airport near some quilters who questioned what I was doing. So we had an impromptu hexie class while waiting for our plane! Hexies are contagious.

I'm still stitching the June block together. Can you believe June is almost here?! I keep thinking I'll get ahead on these blocks, but I never do!

Tomorrow there will be a big giveaway on my other blog - so check it out! 

Just realized I used a lot of exclamation marks in this post!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I have your signed Hexie book! Taught my granddaughters to make Hexies from the book but we used a washed sour cream container to draw our circles. They even made earrings!
