Cover Girl... SHEEEEPISH.

The other night, I opened the mail and let out a big squeal - my husband came running in to see what was the matter....  Sorry, honey.  It was just an episode of Quilt-itis.  I had just received my advance copies of the May/June 2014 Quiltmaker magazine... with my little Hexie Sheep in the Meadow quilt ON THE COVER!!

While I knew my pattern would be in this issue, I had NO idea she would be a Cover Girl!

They call it "Sheep Shape"...

And I think it turned out to be such a cute baby quilt!  I'll be all ready for grandbabies when they come...

Such a simple quilt to make, using half-hexagons sewn in vertical rows; NO Y-seams! They rated it "Easy".  I used a Hexie-Half ruler by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.  The fabrics are all Basics from Riley Blake.

The quilt also features my favorite dimensional folded hexagons I call HEXAGAMI for the flower centers, top-knot and eyeballs on the little sheep.  I happened to be demonstrating these Hexagami Make & Takes at the Riley Blake booth at Quilt Market last May when Quiltmaker editors Carolyn and Diane stopped by and saw how I was planning to use these as flower centers on my new "Hexie Meadow" quilt top.  They asked if I'd like to submit it to the magazine.  *Ü*  I said yes.

What a fun HEXAGONAL year it's been!  You can see all my hexie projects and adventures HERE.   Next, I'll be playing with new half-hexagon AccuQuilt dies... I see a class coming soon!

Look for your copy of Quiltmaker, on newsstands April 8th!  You can also purchase the magazine online or as a digital copy HERE.
