Over the last couple of months I've been trying to get all my class samples done, handouts ready and class plans written. I'm excited for my new class, Machine Piecing Hexagons. I think I have some good info about cutting and piecing hexes as well as lots of tips to make this technique work smoothly for quilters. I'm rolling out this class in Minneapolis at Sewtropolis on September 15th and I'll also be teaching the 1/2 day version at Quilt Con.
In addition to all the technique info, I want to give folks a bunch of modern hexagon inspiration, so I've been working hard on some modern hexagon designs. I can't wait to show you all of them, but for now, here's one of my favs. I'm calling it "The Granddaughter Star."
Good news! Alissa let me know that the Action Kivu fundraiser has been extended one more day. We've done really well, but haven't reached our goal. Every dollar counts for this organization, so now is the time to give if you haven't, give a little bit more, or if you happen to know Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, (or anyone else you think might want to support this cause), ask them to click that donate button.
