I Heart Hexagons

Before the weekend starts I thought I would share these photos with you, although they aren't the best shots... sorry about that!
I had a few photos of a class I had taught on a Hexagon pattern.
I don't have my sample for the class unfortunately but I thought I would share these since a lot of people are participating in Julie aka Jaybird Quilts, Hexagon Quilt-A-long.
I love these and was really surprised by the batik one with the dark background.
Here is one in progress...
And here is another one with the rows sewn together.
I made mine out of Fig Tree fabrics... and I love it!
Note to self: ask son #1 to bring that one back!
Anyway, it pretty much looks like this one:
This is the pattern cover from Laundry Basket Quilts. The designer is Edyta Star... love her patterns!
This one is called Twist and Turn. I really love the border on this one too!

Here is one I did from an American Jane pattern... and this one just calls for a jelly roll.
I have sewn all of these guys together now... for the Hexagon A-long... but they seem to have taken
 a back seat for now to other things.

Can you believe that it's Father's Day weekend and Summer Solstice is on Monday?
I'm thinking there is going to be a BBQ going on... a sure sign of Summer!

One of the other things I plan on doing this weekend
is practicing walking in these:

Wish me luck!

The hexagon quilts are beautiful. I really like the batik one. It looks so different.

Good luck with the shoe thing. They're really cute.

You are going to do fine. I hope the wedding will be a very memorable one for your family.

I loved looking at the quilts - and your shoes! Wishing you all the twinkle toes magic to waltz through the wedding with not so much as a stubbed toe or twisted ankle. I am sure you will be walking on cloud 9 and will it will be one of the happiest days of your life.

The hexagons are lovely. But those shoes!!! They will be the hit of the event. I love them. Perfect. No blisters though, you are right to break them in.
