Hex-a-sketch

These little guys debuted tonight at the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting, where they were inadvertently left, along with some of their pals who I haven't even gotten to photograph yet! I'll post again when they make their way home.

These were the end result of asking myself, in my instant-gratification-all-the-time sort of way, "what could I do with just one hexagon?"


After toying with the idea a while I realized it was very similar in approach to a book by Ed Emberley about making thumbprint drawings that I had as a child. Oh just looking at that cover is giving me more ideas.


Hello new obsession.


The hedgehog was my first and is still my favorite. Which may have more to do with my secret hedgehog obsession than anything else.

I have your cute critters! Send me an email to remind me again where you live and I'll drop them off (pdxfelix33 at yahoo dot com). Although they are so adorable I did have to think twice about giving them back!

Hi Christina... it was my first time at PMQG too! I'm the cocoa puff that made all the noise when I came in late. I got there just in time to see your presentation! I was way in the back, but could still see how absolutely adorable, clever and creative your hexies are! I'm so glad you posted photos!
