I'm a Hexie fan..

 I finally got this one into the frame...mind you, I had a devil of time getting it set in properly.  First time ever that I had 108 wide fabric that was actually not parallel.  It was off by at least 18 inches ....couldn't believe what I was seeing. The rods that are used to attach the fabric are perfectly straight and yet when I attached the fabric it was off on one corner by at least that much.  Weird! Anyway, I got my Hexagon Chain onto the frame and got quilting. There is a lot of paint on the white fabric and it is a little tough going...but I'm tough, too. I'll get 'er done!


This is the June BOM from the Hexie Blog.  Took the picture to see if the colours were what I actually wanted.  I think it will do.  I probably will start on the sashing and cornerstones soon so I'll have an idea of how I want to put this together.  I'm not a fan of BOM's, I like to get everything organized for the full top in advance and then put it together, however, this is a fun little project  especially since I like making hexagons...not sure why really...

This is one of the loveliest quilt tops I have seen. The hexagon's do make a quilt.
