Hand-pieced Hexagon class recap

I can't believe it has taken me 2 whole weeks to finally get around to posting these pictures, but that is how the cookie crumbles...

Here's Brooke teaching away at her Hand-pieced Hexagon class...

Is she not the most adorable little pink-haired pixie you ever saw?

I first met Brooke at the Maine State Quilt Show, which takes place every year at the Augusta Civic Center during the last weekend in July.

I have to confess that sometimes, Mom and I feel a bit like oddballs at the Quilt Show: not because the people aren't nice (they most assuredly are), but because we have fabrics that are a bit "out there" for the average Quilt Show-goer.

Having said that...

There are some people I look for every year, and little pink-haired Brooke has always been one of those people...

Except when I first met her, she was little blue-haired Brooke.

Not many people at the Quilt Show with blue hair, but I would have remembered Brooke any which way... :-)

We've been "hanging out" together on the internet ever since.

I think it was particularly brilliant of me to ask Brooke to visit the shop and teach us all how to make hand-pieced hexagons.

So brilliant that I think I'll do it again.

How 'bout it Brooke?

Come back and teach again this fall?

Yes, this was 2 whole weeks ago and I am still enamored with making little hexies.

Thanks so much, Brooke!

Everybody had a great time, including me!

The biggest reason I come to Alewives Fabrics is to find fabrics that are "out there"!
