I was able to finish the baby boy quilt this weekend! I used one of the bindings I made last week and a nice soft flannel for the back. He is now in the dryer getting all warm and cozy and ready to be delivered to the new little man!
I have been having fun making Hexies. I tell you they are like chips, you just cannot make one! This is going to be a pillow. I thought just this strip down one of the sides and then stitch around them with big stitch quilting.
I have quite a few left over so I was thinking of making pot holders.
My friend Elaine brought over her Hexie Quilt, I forgot to ask her how many Hexies she made for this beautiful Flower Garden Quilt. The top is done and she is ready to sandwich it and start the hand quilting. I just love the yellow border, it is a true 1930's color to match her 1930's fabrics. It is just amazing!
She kindly gave me the hexies she still had cut! Now I do not think I will make a quilt that large but I sure can have a lot of fun with these prints!
If you would like to give hexies a try, now would be a great time.
My mylar hexies are on sale for the next two weeks.
