Ahhh HEK, we have another blog hop......YOU may be our NEXT QUEEN. ( of something) OHHH AND AN OLISO IRON GIVEAWAY

Let's be HONEST, don't we all want to be a QUEEN OF SOMETHING
someday? ANYTHING? Well- why not HEXIES.....?

Many of us had never done

So I have never done a hexie project, I heard that other lady hasn't either...
Finally we will be on the same playing field...wink...

That other lady.... "I don't know about this one."
Me.... " Ahh come on, you do it, I will do it"
That other lady.... " How about I just say -YOU WIN"
Me.... " NOPE- I can't win if you are not in the hop"
That other lady... " Ok, how many will you be doing?"
Me, " ahhhh depends on how many you will do"

That is where we left off...

You just know we have been already working on something...
AND we CANNOT do it WITHOUT YOU too...

As I am no expert at all in this area, I called upon 

Debby is a Queen in the making...
at least that is what she tells me ...I think she 
is more than that...She has been working on Hexies
well let me just say a long time....
She has been a great cheerleader for many of you
through the months, we value all the talent this lady
has and shares with all those who love quilting...

She has something special for all those who 
will be our HEXIE hop...I will let her share that with you...

In the meantime....

Looking to cool off....?
I have no idea who made was on the Pinterest 
link it not a beauty..OK, I may really like 
this HEXIE hop very much...

If anyone can claim this....would love to highlight you..
I followed a couple links but it did not take me to the 
original quilter...

and she called this quilt TNT ( trying new things) 
and these hexies were cut from a die and she 
just glued and stitch around each one..
A unique look and something that would be easy

  16. Hexies are not my favorite quilty things. But that other lady Carol has challenged me and I couldn´t resist to take her pin and I am in the hop of course. It could be lot of fun and I have already an idea, that I think could be wonderful. LOL In fact two - three ideas.

  20. Email has been sent to Debbie seeking a spot. Done some small Hexie projects years ago. This should be very interesting. Like a shot at the iron, cause it would look so good on my ironing board. ;-}
    Are there any Hexie rules...size,project type, number of, etc.etc.etc. or will this be a Hexie free for all?????

  21. I have never done hexies but they have been on my to do list for a while, so I am in!
