While I am no longer in the swap, I just wanted to share my progress in making a quilt from all your beautiful inchy hexagon flowers you have sent me over the last few years. I cherish each one.

I will be making rosettes of 6 flowers and appliquéing them onto Mod Century by Jenn Ski (Moda) background.

Almost done

Yes ladies, I'm almost done!
No, I'm not even near to finishing my hexaflowersquilt, but I did make quite a number of hexagonflowers to send to my neglected swappartners. Only one flower to go and six!! envelopes are going in the mail. They should be posted in one or two days!

I also want to show you the lovely flowers Cindy Harris made for me and she added a great card too. Thank you Cindy; I like the flowers and the card very much.

And, last but not least, I finally decided how I want to put all those lovely flowers together! So now I'm busy with the embroidery  of names and countries in the centres and adding blue/greenish hexagons around the flowers. Don't know yet how the border is going to be, but in time I'll figure that out too ;-))

Happy Hexing! Joke (Jora)

My Hexies from Leslie L From Leslie and to Lynetteand Hexies for Lynette P

 These Lovely Hexies for January arrived from Leslie Legross( Les Quilts) in Canada.
Thank you so much Leslie, I love them, the one on the left reminds me of Monet's Garden, they will both fit beautifully in my Garden Quilt.
Leslie also sent the delightful card.
These ones I have posted off to Lynette Peters for February, they do not have to cross the sea as Lynette is in Queensland, Australia.
You asked for Brights with spotty centres Lynette, I hope these are not "over the top".
Best wishes to you both.

February Swap Lists and January Hexies

Hi everyone,

I have sent out the February swap lists.  If you didn't receive them and think you should have please get in touch with me.

We have one new swapper this month, Mary from Ohio.  Please welcome her.  Our numbers are back up to fifty again.  I hope everyone is keeping up with their swap obligations and no one is unhappy! :)

Speaking of which - Marie, I have been slow getting your hexie flowers done for January, but they are finished and will be in Monday's mail.  I hope they travel to you quickly.  Here is your sneak peek...
