I am working on a Queen sized quilt top for the oldredbarn sew along. Need to quilt a twin size quilt top I finished a bit ago and need to sew an outfit I have cut out for my baby to be! That is just a few of the WIP's I have going at the moment! HA

Kim said...

I'm always up for a fun giveaway. I love your hexagon tutorial. You did a great job. I love all of the pictures too.

Kim said...

I forgot to tell you I'm one of your newest followers too! I guess I forgot to tell you that I'm from Highland, Utah and I'm working on several things right now one of which is our last block of the month. Now I can put it all together and have it quilted.

Michelle said...

Hi, I am Michelle from Ontario, Canada. I had to laugh when you asked your question, because I have a few projects on the go, that are due within the next month. I have been making a time line to get it all organized. I am working on my colour blocks for a swap, my 9 patch quilt along, my zigzag quilt, my bento box quilt and the binding for my Spring Meadow quilt.

Congrats on your first tutorial! I'm Anna from Indiana and I'm just finishing up some quilts and trying to decide which stash object to attack next. Don't enter me though, 'cause I already have some templates!!!

Hi!
Found you via PS I quilt! Great tutorial. I am Alissa from CT. I am currently working on the Old Red Barn Co quilt along. My first "real" quilt actually. Looking forward to seeing more of your work, and great tutorials.

Joan Heinrich Callaway said...

Hi. I'm Joan from Oregon. I am putting borders on several tops, but am about to sew together a hexagon quilt top from comfortstichings half hexagon quiltalong. I definitely have hexies on the brain right now.=, so I will be reading your tutorial with interest! I was never interested in templates for years -- thinking them so old fashioned, but now I can see a whole new world of quilting opening up if I embrace the idea of using templates. Can't wait to see more of your work!!!

Cool tutorial!! My name is Rose and I live in Northern Alberta, and I am working on so many projects right now! I have a quilt that I really need to get done as it was a baby gift for a friend that had her baby months ago! I found you through Rachel's blog. I am also now a follower, and I posted about your contest on my blog! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Amy R said...

I'm from South Lyon, MI and I'm embarrassed about all that I'm working on. I have my OP blocks made but not put together. An Ocean Breeze kit from Pat Sloan is pieced and the appliques fused. Just need to blanket stitch them down. I have a Jo's Little Women's club quilt I'm hand quilting. I'm backbasting/appliqueing Peppermint Twist which is a Jo Morton pattern. . . and I haven't started the Holiday Inn quilt yet from JLWC #8. I've never done the follower thing before, but I do use RSS feeds and Google Reader!

Robin said...

Hi, I live in Provo, UT. I'm working on a pinwheel baby quilt I saw on Moda Bakeshop- I love it, it's my favorite quilt yet.

mandy said...

I found your hexagon sew and flip tutorial via Rachel of P.S. I Quilt - I can't wait to make one! I've been seeing a lot of hexagons lately and I think I've caught the bug. Right now I have three WIPs but am really wanting to start a hexy quilt. Oh, and I just started following your blog:)

Janet said...

Hello from Indiana! I love the little table topper and think I'll try your tutorial as soon as I finish the baby quilt I'm working on. I'd love to win the "eye spy" templates! My first visit here but I'll definitely be back!

Kelly O. said...

HI I'm Kelly and I live in Canada.
I'm doing Dana's quilt along at the Old Red Barn Co. and I'm having a wonderful time. I wish eating and cleaning and taking care of my family (whom I love) didn't get in the way of my working on my quilt but oh well :)

I haven't tried anything with hexagons and would love the challenge. Maybe it would build my confidence to get brave enough to try a flower garden quilt>>

diplofam said...

Hi, My name is Carin. I am living in Toronto but I call Michigan home. I am binding 6 quilts right now and when I have finished those I have some charm packs screaming for some attention. I also just learned to make the Birdie Sling and that is a bit addictive.... Anyway, I have to check out your tutorial now.
Thanks,
Carin

Cute tutorial!

I am working on a hexagon quilt made with Moda Fresh jelly roll fabrics. So cute!

I have a small Farmers Market fabrics quilt I need to get quilted and bound, and a mystery quilt from Quiltville that needs borders and quilting.

There are too many ideas and not enough time to get it all done!

These are amongst about hmmmmm..... thousands of others on my to do list. And yes, I have become a follower!

Mrs. Doodle said...

I am a new follower too. It is so exciting to see another young person ( I consider that my about to be turning 30 still young:) out there sewing! Yea~ I love your blog. Went through all of it. I love your projects. I have been wanting to do something with hexagons for a while and this is perfect.

I have too many WIP. a mini that I am going to do a tutorial for my blog with, 3 quilting bee blocks to make and send out, and my quilting bee quilt to finish. Too much.

Jill said...

I love, love, love hexagons! That project looks like fun.

I'm from the middle-of-nowhere in North Dakota, and I'm working on probably five projects (in various states right now), but I think my favorite is a bag.

I also signed up to follow your blog - it looks like one that I'll enjoy!

Hi, I'm Jane from Melbourne, Australia!
I've just finished my exams for the semester and am very excitedly getting back into sewing my second quilt. It is a stacked coin quilt in different shades of blue. I'd love to win this giveaway as I'm wanting to branch out into more challenging projects but haven't had the courage to do so just yet!

Thanks!

I´m working on several craft projects right now (as usual, I could never make just one thing at a time): a mini quilt for a swap, a cloth doll and almost finished with a pencilcase for my daughter. Also, I´m in an international quilting bee that's been great fun. Thanks for teh chance of winning!

Gretchen said...

Ooh fun! I love this idea, and I've been thinking about making something similar for my girls for car rides. I'm currently making a lunch sack for my husband and a bunch of camera strap covers :)

Molly said...

Hi there, I'm Molly from Oregon. Right now I'm working on two tablerunners, the nine-patch quilt along, and I'm going to attack recovering my raggedy ironing board today! I follow your blog, and I've also blogged about the giveaway on my blog! Thanks for the chances...love the tute, by the way! :)

Hillary said...

Hey my name is Hillary I'm working on several patterns out here in Arkansas! The most progress I've made on any f them is on a lob cabin style sampler because it's a quilt along :) There's links from my blog if you want to see it! I just finished putting together & sashing the top!

Hillary said...

Yeah. I'm following now to :) your catching up on the nine patch post sold me :) Maybe cause I feel like I'm in the same boat as you, often!

Bronwen said...

I really had no idea what a hexagon ruler is good for, since I just started this whole quilting thing. However, if you say it is useful I'm sure it is:) Finding some Canadian content is awesome too, since I'm a BC girl. Great job with the tutorial. My current and first project is a baby coin quilt. I've put a photo of the completed top on my new blog. -Bronwen
