More Hexagons!

But this time they are gonna be biiiig!

More hexagons!

So much faster this way.  I’m certain to be sewing these together this weekend. Oh and is anyone going to the Long Beach Quilt festival?  I might – depending on if I can pull myself away from the sewing machine….

    I really, really like your hexagon quilt. Please tell me where I can find the pattern and do you use white Kona cotton in your quilts?

    I’m pretty sure I’m going tomorrow! Trying to decide if I should go in the morning, or wait til the afternoon… (ie, what time are the old ladies going to be the most brutal?)

    I was at the quilt festival today – it was great. i got some great fat quarters for a great deal at Lazy Daisy Cottage, and some fun combos of fabrics at some other stand that i can’t remember and a few neat patterns. it’s possible that I’ll head over tomorrow as well – - just remember to watch out for all of those scooters and bring your own food – sandwiches are $10!!

    Hi Alissa,

    If you DO go to the show, stop by “The Quilt Merchant” booth and say “Hi” to Docia (Doe-sha) and Jim for me!! I work at their shop!! And, they’re a LONG way from home; Winfield, IL, about 35 miles west of Chicago!! I’m on vacation in New York State as I write this. Her shop/booth/specialty is all Civil War reproductions. Even if they’re not your “cup of tea”, stop by anyways….her booth (and shop) is always stunning/gorgeous. You’ll appreciate the booth simply for it’s looks, if nothing else. You’ll so enjoy Jim and Docia; they’ll laugh when you tell them why /how you ended up at their booth!! Tell them Deb sends her love, and I’ll see them in a week, or so!!
