Ring around the Rosie....... and giveaways!

Hey Yall! And welcome to the last day of the "Be a Hexie Queen Blog Hop!  I have to say that this has been one of the most inspiring blog hops I have participated in. We have had hexagons made just about any way you want. From the traditional hand sewn to machine stitched and even glued! They've been made in all sorts of sizes and colors. They've been going round and round in circles, made into flowers and we've even had them made into a christmas tree!  I have made a few over the last few months, but I too am new to this type of hand sewing. 

I must say that I have had a hard time trying to decide on how I wanted to use my hexagons. Things have been so busy around the farm with three new baby calves and 11 new baby chicks. But with time running out I new I better come up with something! So the other day I was playing around with some gingham hexies and my hubby walked by.  Well his jaw fell open and he started shaking his head! He said" Uh-uh , no way are you doing that!" Well I looked down to see what he was talking about and I realized he thought I was going to sew them on this shirt this way. I laughed till I cried.
    
 Well he stormed off , still shaking that head so hard I thought his hat was gonna fall off. He turned back around and said" You better stop monkeying around and get busy on your project"!
So I did!

Well this earned me another good shake of the head . I think its kinda cute! Sometimes he drives me bananas! (just kiddin)

Anyway, I guess I better show yall what I finally came up with:

I call it "Ring Around the Rosie".  Yall, this is the hardest quilt I have ever tried to photograph!


I think it is hard to photograph because of the gray background with tiny yellow dots. It measures 42x54" and I used a combination of Happy Go Lucky precut hexagons and some Briar Rose Fussy cuts.

 The hexagons are hand sewn and then machine appliqued onto the quilt TOP. With the exception of the center flower. The center flower is hand sewn and then appliqued to the quilt AFTER I sandwiched it to the back.  Here is the back so you can see the difference. The large flowers do not have the hexagon quilted shape like the center one does.

 Each hexagon is one of the large flowers going around the small flower in the center. Therefore, Ring Around the Rosie. I really experimented with some free motion quilting designs for the first time and I love it!


I free motion quilted circles in the flower centers.

I then free motion quilted a large petal in each hexagon and a small petal between two hexagons.


On the outside of the circle of flowers, I free motion quilted a meandering vine with flowers and
leaves. 

 I love the look of the quilting on the outside of the circle of flowers and I left the inside of the circle
blank except for the small flower with the bees.


I think the non-quilted neutral space in the center looks like a large snowflake.

I love the grey background with the yellow dots. It looks like drops of honey from those adorable bees.

I just had to take a picture on my Butterfly hook! I used the same yellow from the flower centers for the binding.

The binding is machine stitched to the front and stitched in the ditch on the front grabbing the binding on the back . The back is a green bias plaid flannel!  I love the look on the back and these adorable bees are carrying honey in their aprons.



Yall I really loved making this quilt! It makes me Happy, Happy, Happy!

I hope my "Ring around the Rosie" quilt made you happy today! I am sad to say that I did not get to use my gingham or monkey hexies this time. I've had a little bout with carpal tunnel in my right arm and figured I better give it a rest for a few days. But those hexies may just be for an upcoming  blog hop! ssssh..
    Now, I would like to say thank you to Mdm Samm of Sew We Quilt. She is our reigning Queen and continues to inspire us all ! Also a huge thank you to Debby of Debby Kratovil Quilts for leading us all toward the crown! She has truly been a fearless and tireless leader!
And please visit these other ladies that share today with me. They have been hard at work on their hexagon projects and are ready to share their talents with you:

Day 7: Wednesday, August 28

 Yall , I would also like to give a very warm welcome , as I hope you will,  to two of my newest friends and followers:

Well that my friends is a story for another day!   So until then, I hope yall have a quilty kind of day and get out and see if you can find some honey dropping bees!

  49. Your Ring Around the Rosie Quilt is sew wonderful. I love the quilting! So sorry to hear about your carpal tunnel problems. I probably have a bit of that in in right wrist, too, but it is not getting opped on anytime soon. MY DD did have this operation when she was 18 due to hours and hours of flute practice. Then she fluted on. My girl is courageous and perseveres. May you soon be hexing on and monkeying around with those little hexies.
    Thanks for the chance to win ... both are lovely. Metropolitan Flair looks like it would make a pretty fall table quilt ... :) Pat

  106. Oh, it sounds as if you follow the guideline the pastor gave me and my second hubby - make each other laugh everyday. He had a wonderful sense of humor. There became other issues and eventually I had to get a divorce. We were divorced just 7 months (of course, I knew he was not in good health - he had 3 strokes before I married him) and July 30 the police chaplain came and knocked on my door and told me that he had been found dead in his apartment. His estranged family lives out of state. He had to be id'd using dental records. His family doesn't want to do anything. As far as I know, he is still at the Medical Examiners office. So, thank you for making me laugh today. I laughed and laughed. Those stingers would really hurt. I'm a breast cancer survivor, so I really am aware of such things more. But I think it's very, very funny. Can't take things too seriously! Your Ring around the Rosie is absolutely beautiful and you are very deserving of a top 2 finish. When I looked at Samm's post this morning, the queens for a day had not been named. When I saw your blog, I had to go back and check because I knew you were deserving. Not only is the piecing great, the quilting is impeccable. Oh, to ever quilt near that! I just don't want to practice. I want it NOW! lol I grew up on a small dairy farm and miss it. It's not an easy life at all and I admire those who commit to it. One of our local farmers who has a produce store in closing this fall. He and his brothers are elderly and the children are not interested in it. He has 181 acres!! He's about 25 miles south of Tulsa. Oh, I wish someone had the bug and the means to take it over. It's been in business since I moved here 40 years ago and I have no idea how much longer. Thanks for participating, sharing your wonderful quilt, and making me (and I sure others) laugh. I can hardly wait to see you in more hops.

  132. Your ring around the rosies is just lovely. As for your hexie boob covers, that was so funny. When I first saw the picture I thought "no way, she didn't". lol Thanks for sharing.

    I like the metropolitan fair.

  134. Your little monkey and bananas hexie flower is adorable! Your "Ring around the Rosie" quilt made me smile.... Thank you! I really enjoyed your pictures and the descriptions! I hope you get over your little bout with carpal tunnel soon. The Juggling Summer looks like it might be a lot of fun. Thanks for the chance to win!

  137. Your quilt is lovely and I love your Gingham and monkey flowers - I can see they will be really great projects when your feeling better.
    I love the Juggling Summer - I haven't seen it before but it looks like it has some great fabrics in it and I would love to have a little play with it (Maybe even some hexi play).

  140. Hi!
    I got a good laugh about what your husband thought you were going to do with your hexies. I also think the bees are adorable and love your free motion quilting. If I would be lucky enough to win your give away I think the Metropolitin Flair is beautiful.

  148. I'm behind on visiting the blogs this hop...catch up, catch up, catch up!! Wonderful quilt. My favorite part was actually the yellow bindig - how weird is that! But the hexies are fab and your stitching is amazing esp. if this is just your second FMQ. That monkey hexie flower is the BEST.

  149. I'm playing catch-up to the blog hop. We're on vacation and gott too tuckered out yesterday to keep my eyes open. I love ring around the rosie. It's very pretty. What made me laugh was your hubby's comments. They're funny, aren't they? I also liked your chihuahua; it looks like he took ownership of the quilt. So adorable! If I win please send me the summer collection.

  152. Jan! I love this quilt! Great job. :) I can't think why you wouldn't sew those hexies on your shirt like that. LOL! ;) I would love either fabric line but I do love Zen Chic.
