FINALLY! :)

I've finally picked out my fabrics for my hexagon quilt and am I excited! I have had these Nancy Halvorsen fabrics saved for another project, but was so inspired by all the others using her fabrics that I decided to use them for this one. I am also going to attempt to use the Accuquilt Go! hexagon die to cut them. It may be a little slow going at first as I figure it out, but so hope it will easy to use and accurate.


After reading about the Sewline glue pen I am going to attempt to use it.  I'm hoping it won't be as messy as a glue stick and a little easier than the hand basting.  We will see shortly.  You'd think with all my research I'd just start cutting and sewing...and after finally picking out my fabrics I just might!

Happy Sewing--Kristen

I am just loving all the beautiful fabrics I see other folk using. May have to give up the idea of using scraps. :(

Kristen, your hexies will be lovely. The glue pen is a dream to use. When it runs out, don't buy another just get refills (you learn by experience!!!)Take care.
