The Joys of Hex - Windham Wednesdays

Hexie Hop is now CLOSED (as of Thursday morning) - we are FULL, FULL, FULL
 
Turning 60 and the Joys of Hex
My renewed interest in Grandmother's Flower Garden (GFG) blocks
The new "Let It Snow" collection by Windham Fabrics combined with a renewed interest in GFG blocks: English Paper Piecing with sturdy (card stock) papers wrapped with fabric. Makes for sharp points and uniform sizes of hexagons. Did I say hexagons? Isn't there  Hexie Queen Blog Hop coming up?
ARE YOU INTERESTED? SIGN UP NOW!
Different center motif; 6 identical cardinals fussy-cut to ring around those snowmen
And that brings me to a photo of the collection:
Let it Snow by Windham Fabrics
Where I live it's hot, swampy and hot (did I already say "hot"?). But there's always room for the holidays and visions of snow. Windham has a whimsical collection called "Let it Snow" and I am making several blocks using the EPP method. You can see the centers of 4 blocks already formed in the picture above. I have two blocks on their way to completion. Very fun and easy take-along hand sewing.

Throughout the month of July I will be featuring more hexagons and the Joys of Hex (don't go there; I didn't say that other word). And I am trying to feature Christmas and Hannukah fabrics. I have been asked to be the Cheerleader for this Queen of Hexie Blog Hop and I am taking that seriously. This hop will go from August 21 - 28 and you will be treated to an amazing array of creative projects. Please make sure you are connected and informed. I am so excited and I know you will be so inspired!

I'll keep you posted. Until then, May the Snowman Be With You!

  10. You are going to be a great cheerleader, Debby. These Christmas Hexies will be so pretty. I am thinking they would make a beautiful candle mat to place on a coffee table as a center piece. It would also make a great Christmas present for someone.
