DAY 6 of our Hexie Queen Blog hop with Connecting Threads as our Sponsor

3 more days of HEXIES.....
Welcome back....

I am sharing with you now....
MY hexie project won't certainly be done...
If everything goes well, I will have at least a sewing machine today..
So I can move forward on my hexie project...
We already know who wins with the continued
saga with that other lady...SHE DOES !
there I have said it, now I can be less stressed! 

So let's see who our HEXIE Queens are today.! 

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...

Check back later this morning to see ...

I know some "Queens"

Wow, today had some QUEENS who were can we SAY-- 
STUNNING QUEENS....take this lady's hexie...simple yet has impact,
her quilting just web of stitches...
a solid addition to our top 2 today..
It was her quilt ( on her blog) that had me thinking....
"maybe I do like hexies lol"

And reallllllly, is this not just WOW, now we have batiks
coming up....don't you think she may have to do get this finished
for then to show us it completed?
It is just stunning.... love the background...

And Queen of Creativity

And yes this just makes me smile...a lovely hexie smile to boot...her hexie project
that she did first by hand, coloured it and then created it...
and the playground photos..welllll it certainly brings out the kid in all of us..
OK, in ME....
