World Cup Hexagon Month Hex-a-long

As a member of a crazy soccer loving family, I’ve decided June 11 – July 11 is World Cup Hexagon Month in honor of the FIFA World Cup!

Soccer after all is where I first fell in love with hexagons sewn together!

Code for blog button: ‘<a href=”http://www.flickr.com/groups/worldcuphexagonmonth/”><img src=”http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4072/4689763590_af1e87459b_o.jpg” border=”0″ align=”center”></a>’

I plan on sewing tons of hexagons while plopped in front of the TV watching the games. I’d love for you to join me in my little hex-a-long and share your progress. How many hexagons will you make in a month?

I’ve started a flickr group where I’d love for you to post photos of your pretty hexies you make during the month. Please feel free to tweet about the hex-a-long, grab the button, blog about it. Just spread the word! The more the merrier! I know there are a ton of hexagon addicted people out there.

  1. I was thinking when I saw that button how much I love that the hexagons are taking over the world at the moment. You’ll find plenty of hex action at my place!

  2. Sounds like fun. My first quilt was a grandmothers flower garden. I was 12 when I started it and 18 when I finished it. that was about 40 years ago, maybe it is time to do another.
