Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"
Today I am a Hexie Queen Wanna bee! I have finished the quilt top! Yippee!
Thank you Madame Samm @ Sew We Quilt and Debbie @ Debby Kratovil Quilts for organizing and cheering us all on. Madame Samm your challenge almost got me this time.
Time for a reality check, I cannot do hexie's by hand (I have tried), so that leaves me and my machine! This project started back in March and needed to be finish. I hope you like "Meet the Lorax"
Trying to find the right blocks instead of using a pattern can sometimes get me in trouble. I think David will be very happy when it is done!
I started out making blocks from Fons & Porters "Easy Quilts" Cascarone Quilt but realized it really was not a pattern for directional fabric after making (4) of the triangles.
Then one day I was on Youtube and found a video from Missouri Star Quilt Co. "The Tea Cup Quilt". Youtube video I linked to it for you The Tea Cup Quilt What a great block so I made a bunch of them. I put them back in the storage box to sit. It needed something more!
When Madam Samm announced the Hexie Blog Hop I watched this video The 10" Half Hexagon Quilting Ruler by Missouri Star Quilt Co. and signed up. I already had the ruler from a shipping error! They are so sweet there that they gave it to me. It works so easy and makes true hexagon blocks. Of course, they are a bit bigger at 10" across which means they take up more room. I used it differently than the instructions, cutting all the blocks apart and using them as single 12 1/2" blocks.
Please visit the other bloggers in the blog hop and see what they have created for your enjoyment!
