Who knew hexies could be so easy! Thanks for the give away!

Kathie L

How have I not heard of this before!! I love to make hexies, and the quicker the better.


I am new to EPP but this looks like a great product! (and a cute block!)


I want to try those new hexi papers, sounds like a great timesaver to me.....more time for sewing.
Love your block.

Hi Helen, Thanks so much for the hexie pattern, I had hoped to see one in this 8th edition of 100 blocks. Love hexies, neat technique you shared, and great pattern. Kathy

Your block is very pretty. Too bad I don't know how to embroider and I have not done any hexies yet!

Patty Swatzell

I love the simple but elegant pattern using hexies and embroidery. Very nice!!


Thanks for hexie pattern and tutorial.

Janine Marie

Wow! Your washaway applique paper technique might be just the thing to get me going on hexies!

Charlene  McCullough

I always thought quilting was had to learn and specifically appligue, which I love, but with all the new products I'm finally going to give it a try. Love your block, it's so wonderful. Right down my alley. Thanks for the opportunity to win the magazine.


Your block is wonderful - was not aware of such a fun and easy way to do the hexies - that is something I will have to put on my list to try - maybe they will turn out just right??
Congradulation on a great block and thank you for the chance..


Wow didn't know that the hexie paper existed, thanks for showing us. Would love to try it out.


Don't see if it took my comment or not. Really like your block!

Jacklynn Grimm

Love hexies - your papers will make things so easy! Thanks for the give away!

Ann Flower

I love your tutorial. Makes hexies less scary. I am willing to try them now.


The washable papers seem like a great way to make hexies. It has me tempted, except me and glue = big mess. Maybe I will give it a try sometime anyway. I like your block.


I follow you on FB ;-)


Love your block! Hexagons are great! Thanks for the chance!

I love this Hexie deal, must have some. Eager for them to be available in USA. I am a FB follower and a newsletter subscriber. Thanks


Not sure if I had to do another post, but I am a new newsletter subscriber. Thanks.


Ok, the fact that this paper does not have to be removed from the hexie has me thinking I may get into making them. I never liked the thought of have to remove the paper. I love Fairy Floss; it's elegant and pretty.

If I'm lucky enough to win this copy, then I promise to try this method of EPP. Sounds interesting. I've done very little EPP so far, because of all the prep time it takes (all that basting, and removing papers). Thanks for the chance.
