Quilt Shop In A Box

Elisabeths' Garden by Jovita Goldschmidt (Hand Sewn)
I wondered why I didn't get an email back from Jovita!  I put this box together to hold my applique supplies, and it turned out to be a great portable project box. I was inspired to start a hexagon project from many different sources.  First I saw Jovita's little tin box packed with the most gorgeous colors of silk and tiny little hex's.  (If she can be cheeky, then so can I - copied & pasted without consent!)
I also have seen many colorful blog posts on hexagons such as http://venusdehilo.blogspot.com/2010/05/kaffe-fassett-hexie-flowers.html  and http://kellyrachel.com/blog/2011/02/23/wednesday-hex-along/  and "sew" many more!

I haven't yet decided on what to do with all my little  1/2" hexagons. This is a quilt I saw at the machine quilting show in Tacoma a couple years ago - I do not have the name of the quilter but I love the quilt!


These are a couple more shots of my box of goodies!


I don't say GOT DOTS!  I say GET HEXS!
