If you get my newsletter you will have seen the Hexy Bird block I’m working on now. I still have to add a pupil to the eye, stitch the blue hexies into flowers, and stitch the yellow and orange hexies together to make the larger hex that surrounds the bird—and then applique them to the block—but you can see where it’s going. I think this will be the center of a terrific baby quilt!
Below is Linda’s Hexy Bird, which is also very cute. Isn’t it surprising to see how different a block can look in a different colorway?!
It may be a while before I have borders around my block, but when I get it together, I’ll share the photo. Click to see the Hexy Bird ePattern if you missed it when I showed it before.
I get your newsletter as well and loved the afghan you made for Elanor! The colors are wonderful and I am wondering what yarn or fiber you used? I have been fooling with grannie squares (they are so like hexes I think) and I have several books with so many possibilities. I’d love to make a bright one like you have. Thanks for your help!
I used a variety of colors of Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima yarn. I bought mine from Jimmy Beans Wool . I used a 5.0 mm hook.
Thanks Becky! Funny, I’ve been using a Cascade wool. No wonder your color is brighter!
Both are Sooo cute!
