Hexagon Finish and a Giveaway!!!!

First up is my Hexagon finish!



These are the hexagons that I worked on this summer during my road trip to Winnipeg.  It was so much fun to fussy cut the Cotton and Steel fabric.

The quilt is from the NEW book, "The New Hexagon  52 Blocks to English Paper Piece."  The author is none other than our own quilt shop owner, Katja Marek.


To say she is a little excited, is an understatement.


A week ago she was presenting her book at School House, during Quilt Market.  One of the quilts she showed was mine.  EEKKKK.  What can I say, I'm a little excited that my quilt is in the gallery portion of the book, as well as one that I quilted for Sharon.

Katja is hosting a book signing on November 1 at her store.  To share in the excitement she has agreed to give away a book on my blog, as well as Margaret's andCarla's.  Carla will be a couple of days getting her blog giveaway going.  Check them both out to triple your chance of winning.

To win a copy of Katja's book from me, leave a comment below.  If you are a no reply blogger leave me some way to find you.  I will pick a winner Friday Nov 7th.
