Drum roll, please! Finally, I can reveal the hexie project.

001

My quilt group does a Christmas block project each year. We are each given a kit of Christmas fabrics. Then we need to make a 12″ block using any pattern we choose and only the fabrics in the kit. At our Christmas luncheon, we all show our blocks and then everyone who participated puts their name into the hat for a drawing. One lucky person gets all the blocks, which they can use to make a sampler quilt. Because we are all using the same fabrics the blocks all work together. I decided to go crazy and make mine with hexies. First I was just going to make a flower and applique it to the background but that didn’t look right. So I just kept making hexies until it did look right!

Here we all are at the luncheon. BTW – The lucky winner of the blocks wasn’t me. 🙁

And finally, I am wondering if I’ve chosen the proper name for Norman.

Even though his coloring is not correct, perhaps Garfield would have been a better choice!!!
