Hexies from Shannon

I received these beautiful hexie flowers from Shannon!!!  I absolutely love the colors and the fuzzy cut detail.  I will try and work this technique on some of my future hexies.
It will absolutely work in my garden Shannon...thank you!

By the way, I'm really enjoying our Facebook Page interaction.  Thank you Irene for setting it up!  I still like that we are continuing with our blog though.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Say “hello” to February 2016!
This month we’re saying “good-by” to Grit Kovacs who has enough flowers to make a quilt and “hello” to Sue Hayles from Australia, Daphne Tinkler also from Australia, and Amanda Hauser from South Dakota, USA.  Welcome, Sue, Daphne, and Amanda!!

The Facebook page has been a huge success.  I’ve noticed that more people are commenting on or “liking” posts made by other members.  We have 41 members and 33 have signed up for facebook.  We’re just waiting for the remaining 8 to join us.  Just click on this link to join:

I want to remind everyone about the flowers size we use on “The Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.”  Notice the word “Inchy” in our name. That’s to remind everyone that the petals for our flowers should measure one inch on the side.  Many make their own templates, which is wonderful, but please measure the sides of your hexagon. You can also order a package of templates already cut to size.  I’ve bought them on ebay, quilting supply stores, and paperpieces.com.  I’m sure there are other places that sell them as well.

The February lists have been sent to your email. Please let me know if you find any problems.
Hugs and happy sewing,
Irene
