The last month has flown by for me. (Maybe you figured that out from my lack of blogging!)
Yesterday was the final game of the World Cup. Spain won their first ever World Cup! Congratulations Spain!!
World Cup Hexagon Month has also come to a close. That means it’s time to announce the winners!
Robyn of Coffee & Cotton will be receiving the Moda petit fours. Robyn is also hosting sport inspired quilt-a-long on her blog, check it out!
Valkryie66 is getting the Dream On charm pack!
While I was going through my scrap bag for my hexagons I made a pile of matching bits that I’ll also be giving away….to Bree of me and my 2 guys!
Thank you to everyone who participated in World Cup Month Hex-a-long. I hope it inspired you try hexagons or to finish some that you have been wanting to get done. I managed to make 270 hexagons done in the past month. Woohoo!
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!

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.
