Hexies in Quiltmania:

What a surprise when i went this morning to my bookshop and saw they had received QM.
Heart beats and sweating i opened the issue and saw that once again they've treated me so well.
The quilt is beautifully pictered by Guy Yoyotte and girls, you can start straight away because all the explanations are available. The paper hexagons are from Paperpieces.com.
Isn't this a lovely reward for all the hours working on the quilt?
I managed to make three more nearly insane blocks and approach the easier ones.......
Greetings from Paris, with this piece of wall art, LOUISE MICHEL, a french feminist and anarchist during the Commune of Paris, long years in jail.
Found on a wall rue Lepic and rue Véron, just on the corner.
The fact that my sister died only a few days before the Quiltmania appeared and was longing to see it as much as i did, just breaks my heart....
Take care you all and happy quilting, Will V

Oh Oh Oh! Supermarché on Friday to buy a copy before they sell out so I can show it to everyone and say "That's my friend Will, who lives in Paris".

So so sorry about your sister. Sending you big hugs.

From a very wet Périgord where it can't make its mind up what season it is.

Wonderful hexies indeed!
Je suis fan de tes quilts depuis les années 80... Je n'ai encore jamais eu l'occasion de te dire que je te dois beaucoup : tu m'as vendu mon premier cutter rotatif... que j'utilise encore !
Bien amicalement,
