Elizabeth C. of Massachusetts won the fat quarter bundle of these fabrics. Thanks to everyone who shared such special memories of your treasured Christmas decorations!
Yep, today is my day to reveal my holiday project. Never mind that it's the middle of summer, we are all sweating like a dripping Popsicle! I love these novelty prints and, of course, making something for my little grandsons was upmost in my mind.
First, I AM NOT CONFUSED. I know this is NOT the Hexie Hop, but I've been sewing with hexies all summer and they just happened to appear in this Ho Ho Ho Hop. (Come back August 20th for 8 days of awesome hexie projects with 75+ bloggers!)
One center hexie (already basted) surrounded by 6 fussy cut robins (with pins holding the fabric to the hexagon paper).
|Fussy cut center hexie (2") surrounded with fussy cut robins. Cute, huh?|
|Getting ready to add the last hexie. All done with the English Paper Piecing method|
|Auditioning fabric. I like this snowflake print!|
|Added a hexie to each side and then appliqued the whole thing to a large rectangle|
So, what do they look like, huh?

The winter scene behind that place mat is used for the backing on the place mats. I know my little grandsons will be happy using either side, don't you?
