Welcome to my blog and thank you to Madame Samm and Debby for making this blog hop happen. You are both incredible cheerleaders. Thank you to our sponsor Connecting Threads.
With out further ado, I present Hexipop Swirl.

This 70 inches of wonderful hexiness is made of 331 English Paper Pieces. I hand pieced every one and have the scars to prove it. (See previous post) lol.
This is how the pattern came about - colored pencils and hexie graph paper from Printable Paper. I decided to make the quilt hexigon shaped for some fun, but I was thinking of those great big lollipops when I was creating the pattern.
We have a little park here in Dodge City with fairy tale play things which include Cinderella's coach and a castle. Since we are princesses and queens in the hop I thought I'd do a photo shoot there.
I quilted using one of the decorative stitches from my machine. It really worked well with the walking foot. I swirled from the center to the outer edges. (That's not real clear, is it?) If you click on the pictures, you will see a larger picture which shows the details.
Wait, that's not all, believe it or not. I managed one more hexie project, but this one is ALL by machine. giggle, giggle. This picture shows the vibrancy of the colors on the quilt.
This quilt is a gift to my niece, Maylie, so I made her a 12 x 22 inch pillow to match. The flower petals are two sided and made to flap around.
Thank you for stopping by. Please visit the other Hexie Princesses that are posting today.
