Half Hexi Quilt + A GIVEAWAY!

Pin It



I am so excited to FINALLY share this quilt with you all!  

I made it back in June, but haven't time to finish it until now, silly moving! 

I made it specifically for my master bedroom and I knew that the Paloma Collection was the perfect choice!



I think my favorite part is the binding!
(THIS print)


And the backing is so cute too! It's from the Comma Collection


My extremely talented friend Rhonda did the quilting again.  Just simple, but so fantastic!
(Never mind all the wrinkles, I'm sure my iron will get unpacked eventually!)

This quilt was SUPER EASY!  

I folded a 10" square in half, and then used my Hex N More Ruler to cut out two half hexies at once! 

Then I just laid my half hexies out in the pattern I wanted,

And sewed them together one row at a time. All straight lines, and no corners! 
SEW EASY!

 WOULD YOU LIKE TO WIN A HEX N MORE RULER OF YOUR VERY OWN?



The possibilities with this Ruler are ENDLESS!

Am in the middle of my first hexie project, am using the hand sewn method. Would love your tool to make it your way and the sort of Christmas tree shape looking pattern you have above as well. Your tool looks fantastic and much easier and quicker.

Jamie Lewis said...

Oh I love this! I am a beginning quilter and I have been wanting to try a hexie but I have heard how difficult they are. This seams (misspelled purposely lol) like an easy method! I have a collection of Amy Butler fabrics that I would use to make a quilt with.
Thanks for the chance to win!

I love, love, love the idea of making a hexie quilt with half hexies. That sounds SO much easier than trying to sew together hexagons and worrying about Y-seams. A hexie quilt is on my to-do list. :)

I would definitely make one just like yours. I love hexagons!
Beautiful.

chris wissinger said...

Hey there! How big are your hexagons on this quilt? I love the colors and want to try my hand at making one of my own. Also, have you ever seen a hexagon quilt with less repeating patterns? I ask because I'd like to make one using clothes that my 5 month old has out grown. I like her in certain colors so there would be some symmetry in that, but you can't get many hexis out of a newborn onsie! Thanks for your help!
Katy
