Mariana Nortje gave me permission to post these pictures of her beautiful La Passion quilt. She is quite well along on the quilting now,
And a corner view:
And a close-up:
It took 10 months and 16 days to make the top, and there is 7 months of quilting in it already. Mariana said she is overdoing the quilting. Is that even possible? She has quilted in EVERY hexagon and some as many as three times.
Wouldn’t you love to see this up close? You can! Mariana’s quilt will be displayed in the 2019 Karlsruhe, Germany, show of the La Passion quilts. That would be so awesome to attend!
I know others have been or are working on the La Passion design. If you have progress, why not give us an update?
Hexie Friend is a hexagon-shaped sewing pouch to hold all the goodies we seem to need to piece our little projects. Click the link to go to the Craftsy pattern page to see the outside and the inside. The pattern is $6, and I suspect it’s worth every penny.
I ran across this on an FNSI blog – I Am. It’s #11 on the list, if you want to see the one she made and read about her experience with it.
Sorry, no picture, didn’t want to take one from either place.
Sunday Pics this last week was great! We all love hexagons, or we wouldn’t hang out here on the Alley. Now see a photo of others who loved them in the past. Doesn’t that just look like a great activity we’d enjoy still?

Only one side on each gold diamond is not yet attached. I’m happy this one is almost finished!
This is Block 3 in the Hexathon on Material Culture by Barbara Brackman.
Debby Kratovil has done it again! She’s shown how to make a perfectly lovely hexagon table topper with the help a ruler you most likely already have! It’s a great tutorial for making larger hexagons, so head over there to look, BUT there’s more!
Windham is giving away a FQ bundle of these fabrics! Just read the post to see how you might win it! I don’t know how many FQs, so it may not be all of these that are in the line.

There were two choices about this one, and I took the easy one because there are going to be a lot of hard ones! This is from Barbara Brackman’s Hexathon BOW. That’s the pinterest pin for this block, and the url is there to link with it.
