Hexy MF quilt along

lilly belle quilt a long

How are you all doing? Have you got your fabrics chosen and ordered or ready? And how about your paper pieces? Check this post for the requirements - both paper pieces and fabrics. Don't forget if you order from paperpieces.com you get 25% off using the code FAT25 until August 31st. I have stocked up on a heap of other shapes, because that offer is a really good one. I ordered more 2" triangles, squares and hexagons for Spring Carnival. I've been planning a variation of it ready for when I go to Sewing Summit in October, to demonstrate how versatile it is. I still have templates for Spring Carnival in my etsy shop. Just saying, you know, in case you wanted some.

Cutting instructions will be up on the Fat Quarterly blog on Sunday, so take the time this weekend to start pressing all of those fabrics you've chosen.

And for those that have been waiting - more Hexy MF acrylic template sets are in the shop.

Not ordered fabric yet? Well, maybe you should go and visit Brenda - orders over $35 get 15% off the total using KATY15 at pinkcastlefabrics.com (no end date as yet on that code) and bundles are 20% using the code PRECUT20 until this Sunday (17th). That includes bloggers bundles which would be perfect for Hexy MF.

If you've jumped ahead and made a start on your Hexy MF I'd love to see - upload pics to the Fat Quarterly flickr group. And fabric stack pics too please, I love to see all of the variations!

Katy, I got my fabric and your templates in the mail yesterday! My paper pieces came a few days ago, and I am ready! Can't wait to sew along with everyone!

Got your templates, got the paper pieces, now for the fabric... I can't make up my mind!!!

Saw this, this morning and already posted about it on our STLMQG blog. Thanks for always keeping us on our toes.

A potentially silly question... will 20 FQs be appropriate, or will I need more fabric to cut enough complete flowers? Going through my stash and trying to use something I have, hoping my Lark stack will work.

Hey, I just wanted to say how totally awesome the customer service is at Paper Pieces. When I left the coupon code off my order, then sent them an email with my grovelling whoopsie, JoAnne replied with a laugh and a no worries and added (or subtracted, as it were) the discount. Yay, them! and Thanks, Katy, for introducing them to me and saving my poor little carpel tunnels from any syndrome!

You know I have taken a little jump on things. I am making mine kind of scrappy. By the way, that 25% discount code for paper pieces is fabulous. I paid $5 for 50 hexagons at my LQS so I could get started, but the Paper Pieces price is fantastic.! I love this quilt.

I'm sticking with the Spring Carnival for now, but keeping an eye on the adventurous ones x

Gretchen said...

Yes! I am all in on this hexy quilt along. I have been ordering supplies and making offerings to the EPP Quilt Goddess as I have never done EPP before. I will be patiently waiting for your templates and a FQ bundle of Lily Belle to wind their way through the mail systems. Cheers!!!

I've chosen my fabrics, hoping to pick them up tomorrow. It's a fabulous design!

Sarah Pings said...

Like Hadders, I've just cut papers for Spring Carnival!!

I'll watch in the wings though, as I have a deep love for Hexy MF (I'd lurve to do it in ombres!

Q: Are any of these lovely ombres I keep seeing on tinterweb in the UK yet??

This is my absolute favourite quilt. Really, really beautiful!
I was working on my grannyflowers for a long time and just managed to sew them together shortly. Now I found the backgroundfabric and I am working out my final layout. Just blogged about it today.
Be blessed
Martina
