Thank you for all your nice notes about the hexagon bag in the current issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. I'm a fan of English Paper piecing. I'm a bit of an Anglophile in a lot of things - especially on the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee. But, I digress.....
Remember last year when we saw these pictures?
This hexagon measure 1/4" on each side.
Linda, from Gum Valley Patchwork in Simpson Australia made this prize winner. She sent us these pictures because she made it with our Wiscasset fabric collection. Impressed?? Wait....
Linda is making another hexagon quilt. With the same teeny hexagons using Prairie Paisley II fabric. Linda was in Kansas City at International Quilt Market and stopped by to say HI! She had her new project with her and she showed it to us and some other Moda folks. Let's just say it stopped traffic. It might have been the show stopper at Quilt Market. Linda, it was lovely to meet you in person after exchanging emails this past year. And thanks for letting me borrow these pictures from your blog. We cannot wait to see the second quilt when it is finished.
