Salsa Verde!

My Auburn friend, Jan, has been working on her version of Salsa Verde from Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts. I finally got to see it yesterday and I love it! She's making this for her daughter who wanted a pink and brown quilt. Jan added some lime green and aqua to the mix for more pops of color. She's still working on quilting it herself and doing a fabulous job.

Look at her perfect hexies!!! Great job, Jan!

Vintage Hexie Quilt Top

As seen on Etsy HERE!

And what a bargain it is! Love those fabrics, and what a load of work went into this. No, it's not finished, but it certainly could be. You might have to fight me for it....

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!!!

Pat Sloan is Hosting the BLog Hop!
