Quilt World Cross Over

Happy Hump Day!

Early this spring I received an email from a communication firm requesting permission to use a photo of my Hex Vex Quilt in a book they were creating for the Mohawk Flooring company to distribute to Interior Designers.

Um....Sure.....
Here is my page.  It is in the section of the book about "what's to come".  I really love what it says here adjacent to my photo.
The cover on my side:
I was in this section:
They got the name right - hooray.
Here are a few of the other "inspiration" pages that I really liked.
When I asked how they found the image they said it was a google search their research group did.  As we all know, hexagons are very, very big right now.  I'm so glad that my name and website were affiliated or I would not have had this opportunity.

By the way, I did send them a Letter Agreement about usage, fees, etc. for their legal dept to sign.  Wouldn't want to find they made carpeting or wallpaper with the image....at least without permission.

It was a big honor to be part of this publication and reminded me of my days at Parson's School of Design.

Here are my latest Stars for the Time Warp - I'm still behind and hoping to catch up before too long!

My summer is flying by with little sewing!  How about you?

  25. I have greatly admired your hexagon quilt since I first saw a photo of it. How nice that a company wanted use of it for one of their publications. And how well it is displayed within it.

  26. That hexie quilt is the greatest interpretation of the hexie movement, you really did make it your own. I'd buy that carpet in a second when you allow them to make it! Congratulations Barb that is just so cool. How come no one has asked you to do a book just on how to create that quilt?

    Happy Sewing
