20th Hexie Swap Poll

As many of you know, I host 1" hexagon swaps. We are polling for our 20th swap since 2013! If you might be interested, read on and email me if any questions:
Can you believe we are selecting the themes for our 20th hexie swap?

Email me your top THREE choices to The poll will stay up until January 31, 2016; the official sign ups begin immediately and ends on February 14, 2016. In order to give you PLENTY of time, the swap is due in my hand no later than March 26, 2016.

To celebrate our 20th swap, we will have lots of contests and prizes for those who complete the swap. More details in the official swap posting to come! J

Quilting Tip of the Week 1.14.16

When chain piecing your block components, separate them by putting a 1" fabric square in between them.

If you like to do leaders and enders, throw one of them in.
