Hexie Weekend and 2 Giveaways

Hi, there!  It's another weekend already, and I have some hexie progress for you, or should I say hexie problem.  I also have two giveaways.  Going through a shelf in my computer room (how'd all that quilting stuff get in there?), I found a duplicate of this:
It even has a hexagon block!  This is volume 5.

And the library staff has been saving the blow in cards from all the magazines they get, so I have another 100 3/4" hexagon paper pieces easily punched with my Fiskar hexagon punch.   I used 7 to make another flower block:
 I'm not sure about this hexie flower. I may change the center to something that reads more white. Then again, maybe not. What do you think?

And I forgot that the first one had a flower oriented differently. And on closer look at the fabric, it looks more like a Liberty of London print than 30s. Ay de mí!  I just spent an hour on a dud. Well live and learn. I may just make a mug rug or something out of this second one.

For the two giveaways, tell me which you'd like as the caption to your thumbnail when you link.  You can use a flickr link or any photo site you use besides a blog. Ends Tuesday, Midnight - and please be sure there is a way for me to contact you.  The last winner of 100 pieces had no way for me to contact her, and the same for the second name I picked. Sigh.  Good luck!

I'm linking to Richard's Link a Finish Friday,  TGIFFCan I get a Whoop, Whoop and One Flower Wednesday (I actually had it ready Wed) since I did finish a block - lol. Go see all the goodies there.

  3. I think both hexies could work for particular projects. I really like the second one, it has a very vintage vibe to it.

  5. I do like both of your hexie flowers. But the first hexie is my favorite. I like the vintage look of the second one but the center seems to over power it a little. Anyway thanks for the give-away.

  8. Those "100 blocks" magazines are the best, aren't they? I pored over them when I was working on a sampler quilt--the problem I had then wasn't too few blocks to choose from, it was too many that I liked. Thanks much for the giveaway.

  9. First you can't tell with two flowers, got to see it with more. I like it when there are some less contrasting blocks, so off hand I say it's good. For the giveaway, I like the book, but like a hexie too, heh

  12. Love your hexies! I really like the centers with the fussy cut flower. And I even have some hexie progress that I shared today. Two trips worth of progress!! You have just the right size of hexies for my project. I've used some of them more than three times and they are getting a little raveled. The go cutter hexie I have is great for cutting the material but it's too large for the paper, I may have to go take a look at this 3/4 in hexie cutter. Between that for the paper and the go cutter for the material, I'll be all set!

  15. I finished my 90 degree hexagon quilt - Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses and took it out of the washing machine yesterday - so finally got my link up - I still have one more hexie quilt in the works and hope to get back piecing it on a regular basis now.

  17. how exciting! I am a friend of Karen's and quite hexy mad. As I type I am on holiday, with a little tub of hexies to be basted in my suitcase LOL

  18. Oh hexi templates, already cut too.......bliss!!
    Really like the contrast on the dark centred hexi flower but the other is lovely, just not so striking a contrast. Guess you could embroider a ladybird on the second centre or stitch on a ladybird button! Dont take either apart, embellish the centres abit lol
