Now that the seventh swap has shipped back, time for the poll to select the two themes for our ninth nexie swap! Big Grin

I will leave this poll up until February 1, 2014. Once the two themes are selected, the official sign up will be posted and will be up until February 22, 2014. The swap is due in my hands due in my hands no later than April 26, 2014.

Vote for your favorite two themes--one here on the post and the second by sending me an email to 2013hexagonswap@gmail.com--DO NOT POST HERE OR PM ME. Like with the previous swaps, majority wins!

The guidelines would be the same as the previous swaps, but always feel free to contact me if you have any questions on fabrics.

Question:
What two themes would you like to see offered for the ninth hexie swap?

This is for 1" hexies.

Choices:
*Stashbuster prints-like the previous guidelines
*TRUE 1930's repros-NO children novelties
*TRUE 1930's repros-ONLY children novelties
*TRUE Civil W*ar repros
*Batiks (must prewash your fabrics)
*Tone on tone (TOT) prints
*TRUE black and white prints (NO other colors)
*Spring (pastel colors only)
*Brights
*Small Floral prints
*Fall (deep reds, maroon, dark oranges, golds, browns, etc.)
*Children's novelty prints
*Novelty prints (not children's)
*TRUE red, white and blue prints (NO other colors)

A couple of questions have come to me via email regarding the TOT (tone on tone) theme.

TOT (tone on tone) is just that--tones of only one color. It is very easy to tell by looking on the selvage (according to Wikipedia, this is the US spelling, while selvedge is the British English spelling--guess I learned something today!).

Look at this picture. If you notice on the selvage, the dots will tell you what colors are in that particular fabric. The colors start with white and then go from light to dark in numerical order.

If you notice, I circled the white dot labeled 1 so it would be more graphic. The remaining colors are all shades of blue, so, this fabric would NOT be suitable for this swap. The second fabric shows two dots--both shades of blue (and in a small print)--is perfect for the swap.

Questions on fabrics can be directed to me at 2013hexagonswap@gmail.com

Between the polls and emails, here are the top four themes thus far:

1) Stashbusters

2) Fall colors

3) 1930 repros (no children)

4) Batiks

I can honesty say that anyone who participated in the previous fall swap must have fallen in love with the striking colors submitted--they were glorious!

Still plenty of time to vote for your favorite themes. These hexies practically make themselves while watching tv, watching the kiddies playing at their sporting events, waiting rooms at appointments, etc. I can make at least 10-30 sets per night at work during my calls and breaks.

The fun thing is that they do not take a ton of brain power to make. Perfect when you want to do a little sewing without having to concentrate on matching corners, points, etc. Join us--it's a good addiction! Smile

Doing some hexies is on my list of things to work on but I think I need to start on ones a little larger. Are all your swaps for 1" ? My fat fingers don't do well with tiny things. Smile

I found some hexie inserts in the mess I call a sewing area Smile I had every intention of making some of these but "stuff" got in the way - I think I will practice on what I have here (they are larger than 1" and see how nimble I can get my fat fingers (my ring size is a 9) to cooperate and see if I can get to where I am comfortable enough to do bunches of those teeny tiny ones (I know they come even smaller - not even going to think about those Smile ) In the meantime I look forward to pictures of finished projects to keep me enthused Smile Have fun!
