PatV82 shares with us "This is from the hundreds of hexies we have all been swapping. I got the idea from a book you shared with me, Kathleen. I'm about halfway through with at least two more colors scheme areas." Looking good, Pat.
I started it in December of 2014 and included it in the UFO challenge when I joined on OCOF.
Our dear friend Christelle from sends us three photos.
The first is how she organizes her hexies prior to sending them to me for her swap. I spy dots! Almost pretty to use, aren't they?
Her second photo shows her use of the black and white swap. I love the pop of color in the centers and borders!
The last photo is is Christelle's first Stashbuster quilt. She selected colors to make a rainbow wheel and added 1" diamonds in black to join them together.
Christelle also sent me a postcard from her "Postcrossing" meeting held in Toulouse earlier this month. It was especially nice to have three of her friends, Valeraine, Emilie and Camille add their thoughts. Such a beautiful scene of the city.
If you wonder what "Postcrossing" is, I did a bit of research. From the Postcrossing website, "The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world. So, you do not get one back from the person you sent a postcard to. This is not pen pals. The chances you will get one from somebody you sent one to is out of this galaxy!
The theme is rainbows--and she made a beautiful entry using ribbons and buttons on a cloud. Just makes you smile, doesn't it? :)
In closing, Christelle is excited to tell us that in Sepember she will be giving paper piecing classes in a very well know haberdashery in her town Toulouse. Christelle, please be sure to share some pictures with us and also to let them know about our swap. There is no reason you cannot send them all in one package to save money.
Teresa would like to share with you two photos--one is an a table topper work in progress and the second is a quilt top using her Stashbusters hexies from previous swaps. Are they great? I'm trying to "I Spy" some of my own submitted hexies!
I asked Teresa to share a close-up of her project and one of the back of her quilt.
Time for another photo contest! Send me a photo of your current hexie project and your name will go into a hat and I will draw one name for a prize!
You may send in up to three (3) separate projects photos for three chances to win. Give me a little background on your project(s) and how long you have been working on them. You do not have to be one of our hexagon swappers (but would love to have you join us!) in order to play.
