What Happened to April???

When April began I had the best intentions! I was going to design and make THREE months' worth on BOM blocks! I'm not sure what happened, but here we are approaching May at warp speed and I have not done squat! Over the weekend I dumped my bag of assorted hexies (I make these all the time and add them to my bag).

I played with them for a couple of days before deciding on the May design...

which I working on at the lake yesterday. That's a blurred hubby and my sweet lab, Cooper, on the right side of the photo.

Last night I finished the motif, ready to applique later today. WHEW!

By the way, your baskets are GORGEOUS! So creative! I love all the eye candy at the Yahoo Group!

Basket Inspiration

I hope you don't mind, Melinda! I'm stealing borrowing a photo from your blog! Melinda has  Hexie Club at the quilt shop where she teaches. The group is all doing the block of the month with us. One of the members added flowers cascading from her basket. How creative! Are you putting something in your basket? Or leaving it empty like mine?

See more quilty goodness at Melinda's blog!

By the way, the hexies in this basket are TEENY TINY!

Put a HEXIE on it!

That's my new mantra: Put a HEXIE on it! I made a denim quilt for my hubby birthday and that's where this hexie landed.

Go to my other blog to see the details.

I've loved hearing where you all live! So many counties: Norway, UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Spain - it goes on and on!

And so many states, too - all over the USA! I wish we all could have a great big HEXIE meet up somewhere - wouldn't that be great fun?

Let's Take a Poll - Where Are YOU?

Here's a cute little hexie flower I made yesterday... just because! I can't sit still without making hexies!

I am in the USA making my hexies and designing hexie quilts. I know many of you who are making the 2014 Hexie Block of the Month quilt are in other countries. Let's see how many counties we represent!

Please leave a comment telling me the country where you live!!! Can't wait to hear from you all!

The HEXIE BOM: April!

A Tisket, A Tasket...

A lovely hexie basket!  You can think of this as an Easter basket or a flower basket.... or maybe a basket to fill with fabric or hexies! It takes 31 hexies to make this one. Have fun with it!
