March Blocks Finished

I finished up my Lucy Boston March block for Rundu.  She wanted orange and gray.

I got my other block swap done and sent off also.

This is my part of my pile of trimmings from my Liberty of London tana lawn hexagons I cut with my Accu-Quilt die.  These were too small to cut 1" or 3/4" inch hexies from.  With fabric that is $36.00 per yard I decided I was not going to waste these small trimmings.  I got some 1/2" hexie paper templates from Paperpieces and I went to town.  I got over 125 hexagons pinned and ready to baste.  

Jan of SewandFarm had a great idea for when you are pinning fabric on to the card stock.  She uses 1/2" appliqué pins.  I got some last weekend and boy do they work well for the 1/2" hexagons.  Thanks Jan.  

My oldest was in town this weekend from Baltimore.  Today we went to see Captain America on the IMAX screen.  I am not normally a fan of 3D but this movie was made for it.  Who doesn't love a good action movie.  Afterwards we went to my husband and my favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner.  It was a fun day.

Get Your Hex On Round Two

Sign up for the Get Your Hex On Round Two and you will be in the pool to win six sets of six Liberty of London tana lawn hexagons ready to sew.  I cut them out using the Paper Pieces 1" finished hexagon template which gives you a nice 3/8" seam allowance

Elita and I are the Get Your Hex On Moderators this time around.  We are planning for a six month bee with two blocks per month.  June will be the first month of the bee.

Those of you who were not in the bee last time please feel free to check out the Sign-Up sheet below and see if you would like to join us.

There is an option on the sign-up sheet for your bee mates to be Europe only, North American only, or you have no preference.  I know postage from Europe to the U.S. and Canada has skyrocketed.  This would be a way to keep postage down.

Sign-Up Sheet

Hope you will join us for some more hexie fun.
