First the Hexie Lamb on the front is adorable and is a must make in my queue….hmmmm. my lamb may have some Technicolor Fleece… that’s another story.
It is a rockin’ magazine….that kicks it even more with this issue as it has a quilt designed by ME in it!
This issue is all about hexies and I was honored with Quiltmaker asked me to design a quilt using a Pieced Hexie design and 3 inch (yes these are bigger and better- makes quick work of an entire hexie quilt) hexagons.
A BRAND NEW PIECED HEXIE DESIGN!
“Marquette Park” was born!
The finished size on this quilt is 75″x92″ and the maker, Peg Spradlin, did a bang up job in less than 2 months. I just didn’t have the time in my schedule to make the actual quilt but I do plan to. In fact there is a stack of oranges pulled in the studio…a few more quilts under my belt for the next book and I will be making my own version. A perfect summer project.
Marquette Park…where is that you ask…..it is where I met Paul 30 years ago on Saturday April 5th.
HEADS UP Paul!!! LOL.
So to celebrate the quilt/magazine/and April 5th I am going to give away two copies of this magazine.
