Day 4 of Be a Hexie Queen....and Connecting Threads as our sponsor

Not surprising shy of 3 years of quilting I have never made a 
hexie till now....I did not understand the attraction to tell you the truth...
I was not thrilled about small hexies that I had to stitch together....
( cute but I was looking for something a little different)

Then came DEBBY, one of the Queens
of Hexies I have come to love and admire...
( Geta is another one, btw, a Queen of Hexies,
you will see why very soon)

So Debby came up with a solution to my HEXIE issue
with her half hexagon ruler/template
it is that first one.... connect with her if you want that one..
she has it on sale....$13.00  $10.00
She made all these rulers....can't wait to see
what else I can make with them....

I can barely wait till the last
day to show you what I came up with....
ohhh by the way I Love HEXIES now...
That Other Lady, doesn't ....I may win after all..
although I swear I could care less...wink..

But not toooo excited at getting to the end, when we are here to celebrate
and cheer our Hexie Queens Wantobees.....

And who will be our HEXIE Queens today....??
Take a peak at our list today..

Be cheerleaders for them...they do all this for YOU.....
It keeps the quilting industry humming and we
get to view some pretty impressive talent out there...

I know some "Queens"
top 2

As soon as I laid my eyes on this I went WOW....She is a MODERN QUEEN.
I don't often lean to anything modern looking but really, the colours,
the pattern, the depth .....welllll it just pulled me in...
YES most certainly we have a MODERN QUEEN in our MIDST!

And this lady creative a FRESH HEXIE look, simple, to look at, not to make I am sure..
otherwise I would be whipping this up like an egg white...
but adorable nonetheless...ohhh yes most worthy of a Queen's tote...


and this one...yes this one...WHY? well for us it was obvious...it is a CROWN
for a A QUEEN....does it look like one....ok, now this would be something I could whip up..
but I am not sure I will have any time.....

( will get to everyone later in the day for comments....)
