Hexagon #4 - Tout Finis!

 Hi There!

Still enjoying these cute 6 inch (across) hexagons!

I had a bit of a challenge with finding the correct sizes for Hexagon #3. Finally figured it out and had hoped to work on it, yesterday evening, but I was plum tired!  Had trouble keeping my eyes open to watch TV, even!

Anyhow, here's Hexagon #4, 
in Linda Franz's new Inklingo collection, 

And here's my 3 cuties,
on my design wall!

What's on my agenda, today?

I'll be working on finishing Bonnie Hunter's latest Mystery Quilt, called "Lazy Sunday".

Will post pictures, in a bit....

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Hexagons #1 and #2.... Re-Visited

 Hi There!

I've been bitten by the Inklingo bug!
And, the bite was rather severe....
At this point in time,
it has to do with Linda Franz's
300 + Hexagon designs!

Incredibly Jaw Dropping,
that's truly very easy
the Inklingo way!

Well, if you remember, I had started making these hexagons with a dark navy background and Gilbert mentioned that it looked like Halloween blocks.

Soooo, I took the first 2 apart and now can show you the completed ironed cutey...

Hexagon #1

Hexagon #2

I've got my third one finished but not ironed, yet. I just finished it this morning.  

I'll upload its picture, in a few days.

Linda Franz, the genius behind Inklingo, also has a blog, that is also very informative and always has lots of eye candy!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Hexagon #2 - Let's Sew With Inklingo!

 Hi There!

Important Inklingo links:

Note: When you place your Inklingo order, please advise Linda Franz that Rosa Robichaud recommended you.  I would appreciate that.  


Onto Hexagon #2, with Inklingo!

The 1st hex was easy and.... 
well, let's admit it, kinda boring.

But wait till you see them all, close-up and personal!

I figured these ones were like little pie pieces.

To make Hexagon #2, you will need:

Hexagon .75 (x 1)
Hexagon the Other Half (x 6)
Triangle .75 (x 6)
Diamond .75 (x 6)

I laid the pieces out and this is what it would look like.

Gilbert saw this and said, "Oh, you're making a Halloween quilt?"

*insert LOUD sound of screeching car brakes, here*


I wanted to use a dark navy with different oranges and yellows, to make my hexagon quilt dramatic.  These hexies were too close to my nose, I think. I never realized that YES, these colors did INDEED look like Halloween colors and NO, that's NOT what I wanted to make!

*insert a LOUD and LONG sigh, here*

Soooooo, I took the first hexagon apart as well as the pieces to the 2nd one.  I will replace the dark navy pieces with some various WOW (White on White) fabrics.

In French, there's a saying that says that "Not only fools can change their minds."

Also, I had originally wanted to make each hexagon a different orange or yellow. But, since some of Linda's hexagons have TWO colors, with white, I thought, "Why waste perfectly good pieces?"

I got 2 ziplocks and am putting left over pieces in them, according to "size".  Figured it would be easier to keep track of them, this way.


Also, my printer doesn't take different sized paper.  Although, in the meantime, I DID figure out how to use small pieces of fabric, for Inklingo.

You just iron your small piece of fabric to your 8-1/2" X 11" piece of Freezer Paper and you put 'er through your printer!

Easy, eh?

Here's a picture of my 1.50 pieces.

Yesterday evening, I was curious as to how many had visited my blog since I posted on my 1st Hexagon.

Lookee, Lookee!

This is THE most viewers I've ever had!

Oh what a fun adventure this will be!!!

Have a Fantastic Friday, everyone!!!
