Festival of Hexagons

A few months back I mentioned the Festival of Hexagons (a follow up to Megan's Festival of Half Square Triangles). Summer is flying by and the Festival is almost upon us.


Festival of Hexies




Starting August 13 (less than a month away!), some of the coolest sewing bloggers will be posting hexagon projects and tutorials for you. I've seen a few sneak peeks of their projects and am thrilled with  their endless creativity. We have 2 weeks of tutorials lined up, followed by a linky party for you to share YOUR creations. Our fabulous blogger will select the 10 finalists, then you will be able to vote for the winners! Fat Quater Shop has generously offered to sponsor the prizes.

  2. It just so happens I just designed a faux hexi block here: http://sewhungry.blogspot.com/2012/08/honeycomb-quilt-block-tutorial.html

    Do the entries have to be finished projects or can I enter my block design?

  3. Nevermind about the faux hexi - my tutorial is for an Octagon :)
    That's what happens when you post things at midnight.
