Mystery Quilt 2018-1 - January #WinterseHexjes


Just after finishing the top of the 2017 Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) mystery quilt, I discovered a new one:
Winterse Hexjes (Dutch for Wintry Hexagons).

One the one hand I absolutely don’t need another huge quilting project, on the other hand….

… I’m planning to join a quilt bee not too far from my home and I need a hand sewing/quilting project for that.

Of course I could take large basket with the King size quilt I’m hand quilting at the moment, but I prefer to take something smaller first. Just until I know what kind of group the bee will be.

I found this new mystery through one of the Facebook Quilt groups I’m following.

It is a quilt made of hexagons (hexies) and it will take approx. one year to sew.

If you use 1 inch hexies you’ll probably end up with a bed size quilt (approx. 150 x 200 cm / 60 x 78 inches).

The pattern is free if you register at this website, participants will receive a weekly e-mail with instructions (Dutch only, but with clear pictures).

You will be able to subscribe until the designer (Anne Liefs / Annelie Dikland) decides to close the registration period.

After registering, you receive the first weekly e-mail. Exactly 24 hour later, you’ll receive the next, and the others follow one by one every hour – until you are caught up.

In one of the e-mails you also receive the link to become member of a restricted Facebook group to share your progress – and of course enjoy all the other beautiful versions.

When I registered the week 5 mail had just been sent, so I had some catching up to do. I’m really happy with the 1 inch hexie punch I purchased a few years ago. Any scrap of (thin) cardboard can be used to punch templates. I use things like packing boxes of cereal, pasta, tea etc., card inserts in magazines - you name it.

I also use a standard hole punch to punch an extra hole so it becomes really easy to pop out the templates after sewing them together.

The name Winterse Hexjes suggests that the colors for this quilt will be blue/grey-ish, but I like the bright colors I have in my stash.

With absolutely no clue of what the final result will look like, I decide which color to use at the moment I get the next clue. I'm convinced the result will be stunning :-)

I managed to sew the first 4 weeks of clues in one weekend, and here I am right now:

What do you think of it?

A role model
#yoorsapril2021 I work with models all the time... they stand out not only for being beautiful but rather for their personal achievements, each of them, study careers from Political Sciences past through which they are trained in International Business or exploit their personalities in Communication Sciences, many also, in parallel with the exercise of their professions decided to conduct commercial ventures, which absolutely have nothing to do with their studies. And they're doing very well.. In addition to other qualities such as how to sing or play a musical instrument and in that competitive nature, they register in competitions for amater, and fortunately appearing in the first places. That attitude is reflected in a "NO POSE” where in each session we only let light play with the camera, theirs and the environment, we do not need to suggest attitudes to stop the record are simply them... My Models. In Yoor there is a space for the sound applause of all those who admire them...

My pride, my novel “Captiva”
#yoorsapril2021 First of all something I'm very proud of is my beautiful family, I love them madly and without them I would not have achieved great goals as it is to have graduated in journalism this year, also another reason of pride for me is my passion for writing. Since I am 12 years old I love to write and through the years I have been improving my writing, currently I have received proposals from foreign publishers to publish and that is happy. I'll leave you a PDF with a chapter of a story. The price to be able to read the first chapter is economical is only €1.50 and with it I hope not to disturb, but the whole book has another price, since I independently sell my stories (at the moment) ✔️ The story I left annexed is called “Captiva” has content for adults, and has second and third parts. 🖊️💙 Synopsis: Meredith is a young adult who was unable to resist handsome millionaire lawyer Robert Meyer, who has very shady secrets that torments him at night.. I hope you like it. 💜
