This quilt has been on my to-do list since last May when my baby graduated from kindergarten.
I've been crushing on hexies for a while, so hexies it is!
I saw this tutorial a while ago HERE.
The original tutorial calls for 1.5" strips and I used 3.5" strips.
I also didn't want to trim the side hexies.
I mixed a bit of cream and taupe for the neutral.
The design took me a minute to sort out.
The majority of the fabric is from "Secret Garden" by Sandi Henderson
Because of how wide I cut the strips I couldn't get quite enough equilateral triangles to make solid rings and centers like in the tutorial.
I like how the scrappy version turned out.
I am going to use this same pattern for my sisters baby quilt next month.
I will try a narrower strip... either 2.5" or 3"
For the quilting I did a wave pattern.
I used the yummy cuddle minky again.
I wrapped the backing for the binding again too.
I had to experiment with the pinked edges and the binding.
It's not perfect, but I like it ;D
And yes, this is the same fabric I used for the Wolf's quilt blogged HERE.
Will be linking up with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts :)
