January 2015 Hexie Block of the Month!!!!
Are you as excited as I am? Time to get started with another year of HEXIE BOM's!!! This year we're going geometric in style. My designs are all in only two colors, BUT as you can see below I used 4 different fabrics in my version. And I rotated mine a tiny bit on my background fabric.
Look closely - you'll see that I fussy cut the center hexagon and the hexagons surrounding it.
I also fussy cut the pink hexagons at the end of the "spires."
I'm sure you've noticed my other special touch! I used size 12 Perle Cotton (variegated!) to do a simple straight stitch (by hand) line of embroidery around the entire motif. Of course, this is optional, but I do love the difference it makes in the block.
Don't forget - you'll find all the information you'll need for the 2015 Hexie BOM in a tab at the top of the blog! Have fun!
