One Inch Hex Starter Pack Giveaway!

Are you brave enough to tackle the one inch hexagon?  C'mon, you know you want to!

To get someone started, I've put together a little one inch hexagon starter pack. It contains 100, 2.5" squares of printed fabric and a package of 100 die cut 1" hexagons. What a great way to get started on your charm quilt or to use in a smaller project.

While the majority of these fabrics are unwashed (I'm not a die-hard pre-washer; don't hate on me), they are all quality quilting cottons from great designers. There's some older Amy Butler and even some Flea Market Fancy in there! 

Want to win? 
  1. Leave a comment on this post.
  2. If you want another chance to win, become a follower of my blog and leave a second comment. If you are already a follower, leave a second comment to let me know that too.
I'll draw a winner on Friday, March 26th and I'm willing to ship it anywhere.

While you are here, check out the Hexagon Charm Quilt Piece-Along here and over at flickr. Good luck!

Oooh, a lovely giveaway! I was going to start some hexagons today but my printer wouldn't work! I used to sew them when I was a girl so they bring back memories for me.

Hi! I found your blog via Flickr when I was searching for hexagons-- I started making them on a whim a little while back and am getting addicted. Sadly, my fabric stash is a bit limited... I would very much appreciate a little boost! ;)

Your quilt-along sounds like fun... I don't think I can manage to avoid duplicate fabrics though! Good luck on yours.

Yuki said...

p.s. I've subscribed to your blog through BlogLovin'. Does that count as following?

Valerie said...

janice said...
