Josephine Baker meets Carmen Miranda - fussy-cutting heaven!

This close up shows how the stripes and motifs have been fussy-cut, either "on point" or "square" to achieve the desired effect. Note: the repeated placement of similarly coloured pansies in the border... hexie madness!!

    I just discovered your blog and am so excited about it. I love hexies and am currently working on 3/8" size. Not sure what I am going to do with them but love the process of making them. Now that I know about your book I'm sure it will give me a direction to go with them. Please keep posting hexie inspiration! Love it.

  3. Hi Brigitte
    Bought your book some weeks ago and love it! My very first quilt was a Grandmother's Flower Garden I made for my first son 34 years ago! Have almost finished the centre medallion of the Anna Brereton Quilt and have already started preparing the hexagons for the rest of the quilt.
    I am enjoying it sooooooo much!!
