Get Your Hex on! Less than 14 hours left!  Sign ups are now closed.

Modern She Made Round 4 Sign-ups are almost over! This round we are making personalized projects for our super secret partners that must include a hexagon (or two or three) somewhere on it.

It can be in the quilting, the design, the fabric, the shape – you choose!

Head on over to our Flickr group to check it out. Your hostesses for this round are Marika, Christen and myself.

If you are interested, you will need to make a mosaic, post it in the group and then complete the sign up form.

For quick links

1)      Post your mosaic in our flickr thread here

2)      Fill out the form here

3)      Comment on the Sign-up thread here

That’s it! Sit back and wait for some really awesome project to be made especially for you! The best thing – partners will go out next week and they aren't due until May, so you have lots of time to make something really special, and of course get something special in return. 

Join us!!

Disclaimer: You must have a flickr photostream, with modern projects and a modern leaning aesthetic. Be a good swapper, with good swapping history.

Hugs and Kisses to YOU!

It's Heart Month! That means love and hugs and kisses too.

A wonderful welcome to anyone new to my blog today, so glad you stopped by!

The wonderful Madame Samm is hosting another fabulous blog hop, this one called Hugs and Kisses. Of course they are all special, but this one is paper piecing - so it's super special. The real reason it is special because the money raised by the purchase of the pattern (get yours here) will be donated to both an animal charity and a foundation to provide sewing machines!! Love it!

For quite some time I was afraid of paper piecing. One thing, it is not like riding a bike, once you forget it, you have to go back and watch videos and read tutorials. It comes back fast though and making the project is a reminder why I love it. It is exact, it looks exactly like you want it to and is a nice change from regular piecing. Do you like to paper piece? Tell me a story about your paper piecing experiences!

This Madame Samm....let me tell you about her.  She runs a tight ship and has high expectations, not of us as bloggers and quilters, but as people. She believes the best in folks, is generous and does so many things for the sewing and quilting communities.  If you haven't head of her, go check her out here. Perhaps you will want to join an upcoming blog hop and share your love of all things stitching. She is a wonderful encourager and also has a team of cheerleaders too! Yeah, she really is that awesome! Add her to your blog roll for some great posts. A sincere thanks for this, and all your blog hops - wink!

And speaking of creative people, many thanks to Soma who created the pattern for us. Woo Hoo!

And by us, let me tell you, I am only one of many this Wednesday. Go check out the other lovely ladies on the hop today too. You could do anything you wanted as long as you used the pattern.....wonder what they did? Go see!
