Hexie Update - Rainbow Scrap Challenge - June is Light Blue
If you haven't heard around blogland.. the color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for June is Light Blue.
I discovered that I don't have a lot of true light blue in my stash... who would have known?? :-)
But I got them done with some supervisory help from you know who....
In other hexie news... Awhile ago I found that Eileen over at RobinHill Quilts was also making hexies... BIG hexies, like I was, in Kaffe prints, like I was. These are my hexies that measure 6" across. You can see her large hexies here.
I suggested that Eileen and I do a swap of some of our Kaffe hexies. After all... variety is the spice of life... and in my opinion the spice of any quilt, and it seemed like we were both on the same wavelength! Here are the hexies that she sent to me.
Aren't they gorgeous!?? Definitely colors and patterns that I did not have in my Kaffe stash. It's always so much fun to incorporate other quilter's fabrics into your own. I tend to by the same colors, etc. sometimes. This was great way to add some variety! Thanks Eileen! I hope you enjoyed the hexies that I sent as much as I am enjoying yours!
And a bit more of great mail recently. Eileen (no a different Eileen) sent me two quilt labels she had in her stash. They are so cute and I can't wait to add them to just the right quilt! Lucy particularly liked them.. no surprise there!
Aren't quilters wonderful?
Linking up with other wonderful quilters at the RSC linky party at So Scrappy. Check out the other light blue projects. You won't be disappointed.. I've taken a peek already! <wink>
