Now that my new programme of classes is out, I can finally tell you about all the stuff I’ve been working on.
Today I’ll show you my hexie quilts.
|Finished size 56″ x 60″|
You may remember seeing this one during construction.
I used the Missouri Star Quilting company half hexie ruler and chopped up a whole layer cake (Kate Spain – Sunnyside).
This was quilt no.2 using this ruler (you can see no.1 here). I used a donated vintage sheet on the back, which goes perfectly with the soft sunny tones of the fabrics on the front.
This is a really simple quilt to make. So for those who like a little more of a challenge in their quilts, I present the hexie stars quilt.
|Finished size: 56″ x 52″|
Still using the half hexie ruler, but this time the layer cake squares (Noteworthy, Sweetwater) are kept whole, with navy triangles added to the corners to create a starry secondary pattern.
Both of these quilts could be easily enlarged with the addition of borders.
Hexies of all shapes and sizes are a particular favourite of mine, and lend themselves to lots of fun quilting designs. I hope you like them too!
