Hexi Friday Not

If youré looking for the giveaway - choice of a video craft class (which you can see as many times as you want and at your leisure) go here

What with working on my LE, I didn't have a chance to do any hexies this week, so my flower looks the same as last week.
And then yesterday we were punched by a storm cell that dropped almost 2.5 inches of rain in two hours - a rare occurrence here.  I took a video but blogger is not cooperating in letting me upload it - even though it's small enough. The yard is a mess.  So for Hexie Friday I have a great link to share with you.  If you haven't seen it already, do go to Life at Ruffhaven's  blog and see the most delightful owl quilt that has hexagons - you'll love it.  She was part of the Hexie Blog Hop and oh, was there a lot of wonderful "hexiness" in that Hop! Go here, too, to see Theresa's wonderful day.

As to a finish, I do have two .  I made my Block Lotto block for this month -a tall star (looks sort of chunky to me)  - my Lovely Year of Finishes goal for August.  And I finished the FMQ on my mod Flower Baskets - all bound and ready for gifting.

















Here's how I did the edges.  I took my freezer paper motif and cut it down the middle.  Then ironed them between the baskets around the edges.
        
 
 Finally I cut the curves where they joined and did the corners.  
 
What have you been working on? Would love to see your hexie project or anything else. Linky below.
 

I'm linking to Amanda Jean's Finish it Friday , Leah, FMQ Project, and A Lovely Year of Finishes. Do visit for more quilty fun.

Yes, Ruffhaven's blogpost was so interesting. And she tells that she doesn't like hexies! Your basket quilt is so cute. I've never seen that kind of baskets before. I link my hexie post from this week here. May be somebody can get an idea for a Christmas present?

Thanks for linking to my owl post. The reason I don't like hexagons is because they require so much accuracy in order to look good and my eyes aren't as young as they used to be.
I have never seen baskets like that either. It's a great way to show off a pretty floral pattern.

Thanks for the shout-out Angie! I had a ball on Hexie Queen blog hop and looking forward to making more hexies now that I know how fun they are :*)

Angie I adore the mod flower Baskets! They came out beautifully and the quilting just sets them off - nice job.

I agree with you on the star.. He is a bit squatty...

Hugs,
Karen
