This is one of the latest projects on my growing to-do list. Haley, of The Zen of Making, is a quirky gal and I really enjoy her blog. This Giant Hexie Flower Lap Quilt she designed is one of literally hundreds of tutorials she has posted. 

Here's the link: Giant Hexie Flower Lap Quilt

Head on over and share some hexie love!!!

I picked up some poster board from the 'good' dollar store and made my template, as per instructed. Then, using my rotary cutter, and an old blade, I cut out the 7 hexies needed for the centre and the petals. The giant hexies measure 15.5", point to point.

I cut out my fabrics using yardage(adding a half-inch seam allowance around all edges to fold over the poster board), but you can use seven different/co-ordinating fat quarters. I cut out 4 of each colour, as I plan to make four of these giant hexie flowers. The difference with mine is that I am going to appliqué each giant hexie flower onto a background and make a queen-sized quilt. Go big or go home, I say!!! 

Wish me luck…please! I have never attempted such a large hand-applique project. Eek! My Clover Clips and stick of fabric glue will come in very handy.

This is my background fabric. It is an orange and white diagonal stripe.

I hope you will enjoy the above offers. I am able to offer demos, tutorials and giveaways only because of my sponsors and it would be great if you could support them. Thanks!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Welcome: Sponsor Sunday!

Hi Peeps!

My generous sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop has lots of sales going on right now. Did you know that they have OVER 700 items alone in their sale section???

I could do some serious damage to the Hubs' credit card, for sure! Yikes!!!

All you have to do is click the Fat Quarter Shop button on my left sidebar to be instantly connected.

They also have a page of links to FREE quilting patterns offered by various fabric manufacturers. You can find it here.

Today's 24 hour Flash Sale focuses exclusively on US College Spirit fabrics. They are on sale for a whopping 40% off, which makes them only $4.30 a yard!

The August 1st post on the Jolly Jabber(FQS's blog) was for their FREE Wishes BOM. This month's block is Mrs. Taft's Choice and is super easy! 

Here's the link.

They are holding a fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation, and have raised over $60,000 of a hopeful $100,000, so far. If you can, please donate to help these kids. You can find the info at the above link.

This is such a cute block. I love, love the Wishes by Sweetwater fabric line.

Paper Pieces has their weekly sale up and running today.

They have 20% off some of their great English Paper Piecing books. I am going to grab this book I've been wanting for a looong time!

You can sign up for their weekly newsletter here. They offer a weekly special, info on new items and sometimes free patterns.

Don't forget, you can purchase the sale books and still use the "qsh20" coupon code for the rest of your purchases! 

You can click through the button on my left sidebar to get to the store directly!

You all know I love Massdrop and Aurifil thread. Well this is the newest Aurifl 'drop'. You get 12 large spools of Aurifil 50-weight thread in all neutral colours.

There are two great collections to choose from. The above is Mark Lipinski's choice. Pat Sloan also has a nice collection. Regularly priced at $130.00. The box will be $79.99 plus shipping(which, as I recently found out is very reasonable!). 

They are priced at $84.99 now, but if you 'commit' to join(you will find it under the green JOIN button), then you will get the lower price. I did this with a computer wrist bar last week.

Use the below link to join this awesome deal!!! Then just search: Aurifil thread.

Only 5 days left!

I hope you have enjoyed this summary of sales going on. I plan to have Sponsor Sunday on a regular basis.

A flange border tutorial is coming next post.

Thanks so much for reading and have a great day!
