Hexagon Blog and Facebook Hop: Joan Shay!

Can you believe this is the next to last stop on the hop?! It's been a blast and still another day tomorrow!

Today I'm introducing you to Joan Shay, the queen of dimensional appliqué. Joan and I met in Cleveland - I had breakfast with both Joan Shay and Becky Campbell - we all wished we had more time together! They had to rush off for hair and makeup for filming so our time was limited. Since we are all three AQS authors, we had LOTS to talk about and lots of ideas to share. Fun!

Check out Joan's Facebook post here:

So did you have a nice weekend? I'm working hard on the next Hexie Love issue - it's going to be a fun one! We also took some long walks and watched the Masters golf tournament. I love designing the pages, but I'll have to admit, I'm anxious to get back to SEWING!

I need to replenish my 3/4" hexies for my next block of the month - May 1 will be here soon! And I need to get back to work play on Odyssey. I've noticed many of you have purchase issue 2 of Hexie Love, and I thank you for that, BUT don't forget:

The general instructions for Odyssey (the progressive quilt pattern for 2015) are in the first issue, including the fabric requirements and the directions for the center medallion.

Tomorrow we'll be ending the hop here and I'll be giving away MORE Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts and a year's subscription to Hexie Love.


  1. I've been enjoying the hexie hop and love seeing projects and getting some tips, too. I was disappointed when some of the stops were via Facebook. I don't do Facebook so that left me out. Perhaps next time you might want to host those people on your blog...just thinking. Back tomorrow. :)

  2. I clicked on the facebook link, and didn't see anything related to hexi's. What am I doing wrong? I noticed this in previous day's bloghop, the ones on facebook, I don't see anything related to the blog hop. (paulburega (at) gmail (dot) com)
