I Spy Hexagons

A while back I received a wonderful package from Quilt Jane. It contained this precious hexy flower with little cherubs and a hexy template. I asked Jane about the fabric and she said the fabric is a print of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. Two characters from children’s books written by May Gibbs, a famous Australian author. 

Note from Jane- The attached photo is my book from childhood that I hope will be passed on through the generations ( notice the Barbara Brackman William Morris backdrop ).

I decided to do an I SPY  baby quilt for my first grand baby. No one is pregnant yet so i am taking my own sweet time collecting fabrics and adding pieces little by little.

The hexy section shown here is made from parts of the Funky Monkey line. the middle yellow monkey is me, the blue one is Gary. The hexies 1-5 represent each of the kids. My daughter-in-law is the green hexy wearing the pink dress with a strand of pearls.
(very top of pic) Her hexagon is connected to the number 1 since she is married to my oldest. My second son does give her a lot of grief so I thought it fitting to put her above #2 so she can keep an eye on him.

The templates are called "Holy Peepers." Isn't that a great name?
The templates are the brainchild of Kim and Dave Bradley. Kimpossible and QuiltJane both sell all sizes of these templates if you are interested.. 
I am sewing these together by machine so I used the inside
area to trace my sewing lines.

Once I get a few more pieces added I will be working in my treasure from Australia. Thank you Jane for getting me hooked on another hexagon project.
Holy Peepers (I just love saying that!)
