The Great Q&N Hexagon Quilt-a-Long

Many of us on the Quilt and Needle forums have started sewing these six-sided pieces into quilts. Some are machine piecing, some are using the traditional English paper-piecing method and many us ... like myself ...

have fast become followers of an easy circle folding method taught to us by our very own Cindy of Princely Sewsations. Cindy has kindly shared a photo tutorial you may find here under
"Tuna Can Hexagon Flowers"

These are so easy and addictive!

Cindy has started a member-led Quilt-a-Long thread here on the forums as a support group to share ideas and encourage each other along ...

... we would be happy to have you join us!

I pick these up and work on them in the car, waiting in offices, at night when I am getting ready for sleep ... anytime I want to keep my hands busy with a pretty fabric project. Here is a photo of my hexagon flowers so far.

There is also a 4-inch Square Swap in progress to share our stashes and get more fabrics for our quilts. Many of us are making charm quilts or ones with one six-petaled flower per fabric. Sign-ups close for this on Friday, May 15th, so hurry on down if you would like to join us in this swap ...

Contact Cindy or Doreen if you want to swap squares.

Have a happy, quilty day! :-) Pat
