Lynz made my quilt

OK so you remember that two weeks ago all I could bang on about was my Moda Bake Shop debut which I was excited about beyond all reason.  Well, guess what?  Lynz has only gone and made it.  Sitting here on a Sunday night watching Boston Legal with my cold chicken and chips, I get a flickrmail from Lynz entitled "hexagons" and do you know what I think?!  I am expecting a message saying, I'm making this quilt and nothing matches up and your instructions are rubbish (not that I'm a worrier or anything).  But no, the flickrmail is a link to this picture and I am sitting here on the sofa honestly feeling like it's Sunday night Top of the Pops and my single has made it to number one in the charts.


 At five, it's the Osmonds with "Love me for a Reason", in at four "Copa Cabana" by Barry Manilow, non-mover at three, the Nolans with "I'm in the mood for dancing", Gilbert O Sullivan up five at two with "Get Down" and straight in at number one, it's Lily's Quilts with "Hexagon Park"!!! Hurray!!!  Thank you Lynz for buying my new single :-) X.

  1. Looks Fantastic! I didn't like Hideaway until I saw this.
    I'm going to make your quilt I just need to get rid of a Single Girl Quilt first!

  2. What fun!!! I love your 'story telling'! Your new single will be at No. 1 for weeks and just the first track on your 2012 album (read "book!") And it is a lovely quilt in those fabrics too!

  4. Woo-hoo!! I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy myself after making it onto your blog! And can I congratulate you on your stellar pop culture references. Copacabana was a childhood favourite of mine. I am not joking.

  25. Aw, and it didn't cost her a penny! No flies on you Lynz. Wow, it looks amazing!!! Sweet post Lynne. Now you know why all the designer gals have those flickr groups for people to show what they've made from their patterns (hmmm, where is the "I made this from a Lily's Quilts Pattern" flickr group?). Best get that up and running so you don't miss a thing that's getting built out there in blogland!

  26. p.s. I know every word to Copacabana from when I was 8. "Music and passion were always in fashion at the Coooooooopa......copa cabaaaaaaana". Sing it Barry.

  29. Oh, it's lovely.
    Now I'll be too shy to own up that I'm making one, too. (I'm afraid mine is bound to be wobbly, but I'm still having so much fun with it).
    I wanted to suggest a flickr group but I can see you've started one already :)

    Anyway, you have a hit on your hands, Lynne - congrats!!

  31. This quilt pattern is awesome! I absolutely cannot wait to try this out! I am extra delighted because I just purchased a Sherbet Pips FQ bundle, so I know I can use this... but, I also know it looks great in other fabrics, too!
