All the way from England!
LOOK: she sent a sample, too! If you want to see spectacular hexagon work look inside this book. You can order it through www.patchworktemplates.com. (I ordered mine through Amazon UK)
I am re-inspired to do hexagons, Jackie, a big thanks is winging its way over the sea to you.
Here's her card...(sorry for the blurry shots). P.S. She also makes gorgeous vests......
AND: here are some of my old rosettes that I have made into diamonds:
They are all pretty scrappy and are made from really old Jinny Beyer fabric that I really loved: I recall taking these to the beach and sewing on them while the kids romped in the ocean....ahhhh the smell of Coppertone and salt air......
The half-hexagons are from an old QNM (March '92, p. 16) magazine by Aloyse Yorko and well worth looking up. She actually made a Jinny Beyer "Inner City" pattern, but I adopted her method and used it to make shorter work of hexagons, as the color bands are "two-for-one". These have been lying around in a box, recently uncovered when I re-did my sewing room. So portable and such fun to do by hand.
This is where I am today-- reading this book and ooh-ing and aah-ing over the directions and pix. You can find Jaxcompany videos also by Jackie online.
Au Revoir--enjoying this Springlike weather....
