Design Wall Monday - 5/18/15 - For the Love of Hexies...

Today I thought I would share a group design wall!

Nearly 3 years ago I started a hexie group at my LQS. We started with just a couple gals at each meeting and we now regularly have 14 at each meeting. We would love to have more join us but we're going to need to find some more chairs first!!! LOL.

Last year we were asked to demo at several different events (Farmers' Market, Wyoming County Fair and Fall Festival to name a few) and I was hoping we would be demoing again this year so I told the girls it was time to think of an official name and pick a logo.

We eventually settled on "For the Love of Hexies..." and picked a logo after which I had the harebrained idea that we should make a table topper of some sort for our demos. We picked a focus fabric (for colors) and I had each gal make 2 logos in her color scheme. 1 logo is for the table topper and she has to make the other logo into something for herself. The results of this and our fussy cutting challenge will be the main portion of our exhibit at the Arts Council for Wyoming County this September.

At our regular meeting (5/1/15) we had this:

And last Friday we had a special meeting where we ended with this. It might be a little hard to tell but it's in 6 larger pieces.

I am so excited to see this coming together!! There is 1 more yellow logo coming to make this a triangle. That way we can have the majority of the topper on a folding table and drape the rest over the front to grab people's attention.

Some of the girls took pieces and parts home to finish adding the black diamonds/triangles so when we have our next regular meeting on 6/5/15 we can put the  pieces all together and fill in the sides (you can kinda see it there at the bottom: 3 black hexies and 1 colored hexie to match the center of all the logos).

If anyone is local or swinging through Wyoming County in Western NY on the first Friday of the month, we would love to have you join us for an evening!!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

That looks fabulous. If that doesn't catch people's attention, I don't know what will.

I would drop by for a visit in a heartbeat if I lived closer. Your group's table runner is beautiful!

It will definitely attract attention on your table. The table topper is gorgeous!
