The Hexathon Begins

Given the economic situation and the amount of fabric I already own, I am trying to finish more than I start this year. There are a few exceptions to my plan and mostly that involves freely starting hexies, sewalongs and doll quilts.

This is one of the projects that I have wanted to start for nearly 6 months and I *finally* found the fabric that spoke to me. Last year I purchased the weekly hexathon blocks from Katja's Quilt Shoppe in Kamloops, Canada. I've tried to pull fabrics from my own stash but couldn't decide on a "theme."

Last week I was at a nonLQS and found the flower fabric - it has lots of purples! This particular store has a great selection of solids so I'll be using the pearl/white for the triangles between 3" hexies and the other solids to make the hexies. The lime polka dots match the original fabric but I have no idea what I'll do with it...I just couldn't leave it behind since it was a perfect match.

I'll make at least one hexie this weekend in anticipation of our monthly hexie linky party next Thursday. Are you getting something ready to share?

PS - don't tell anyone I found another hexie project on line this morning that I want to start like yesterday or the scrap project that I saw at Bonnie's earlier this week. I'm doomed....

Beautiful fabric collection, Sarah!
Oh, that scrap project on Bonnie's blog called to me when I saw it, too! Plans are in the works. : )

Hexie blocks? It's not there any more. Ah well, it's not as if I don't have a bunch of EPP projects to do.

Carla said...

Enjoy your hexies. She has a new one this year, but I'm sure one is enough ; )
