I will admit I was not 100% enthusiastic about this challenge at first. I have already made a few hexagon quilts in my day, LOL, and was so over them. But the sack that I chose had other interesting items in it, such as vintage fabric and lace from the Prom Dress Swap at the last Camp Watchapatcher, sequins, rick rack, etc., so I quickly started putting something together. Thanks, Peggy, for giving me an interesting sack of things to put on the quilt. I challenged myself to use most of them. The colors were mostly blue, purple and pink, so I expanded the palette, i.e. added more colors: lots of green, pips of orange, red, black, etc. Enough talking - here are the photos!
This is the one that I made.
I hope Peggy likes it!
I sure like the one Stacy made for me!
I love it. I already have it hung up in the family room near my chair. The quilting is beautiful! Can you see the hexagon shapes she quilted?
I almost forgot to say that photos of all the quilts in our hexie challenge are on the First Friday blog. I think the link is http://firstfridayartists.blogspot.com

The idea came about this October when my pomegranate tree was groaning with fruit. They were hanging from the tree like glowing red lanterns.
I made another stuffed dog, this time for a friend from my husband's office who is due any day now. She asked for pink and gray. I love how each one has his (or her) own personality. This makes four. Or is it 5? They are all on this blog.

The only way I could figure out how to post this was to cut and paste the link. Sammy is the littlest ballerina, on the left. The other girls are all four; she is 3 1/2.

Do you want to know the story? "Losing their marbles" is the rather rude way my husband describes the cerebral maladies inflicted upon some of our elders. Nuff said.
I like how it turned out. The robot-like head sits upon shoulders that resemble a car. The piece is small, 8" x 10", in an 11" x 14" frame.
The second piece is almost done. I'll post it soon. The "prompt" for the second one is "Red Light."

I just finished this baby quilt for the new granddaughter of Dave's old friend, Leroy. I was told the mother, Erin, doesn't like pink. Requested colors were green, yellow and tan. So I did those.colors but added more. Hope they like it!
