Hexi Progress


Here is the progress on my hexagon baby quilt.  I decided to arrange the hexagons to fade from one color to the next.


I also added a slim grey border and a wide white border of Kona cotton.  The blue and white stripe (Retro Clown Stripe Blue by Michael Miller) is the quilt binding prepped and ready to go.  This stripe matches the blue in the collection nicely.

The backing is going to be "the abc's of fleas" by Alexander Henry Fabrics.  I love the fun letters and so many cute little objects.  Lots for a little baby or toddler to look at.

Stay tuned for the finished product...

 Happy Sewing!

  9. Love the colors. I am doing the same thing - a baby quilt with hexies. How big are your hexies? I think I should have gone bigger than a 1.5 " side :-)

    This looks wonderful - love it.

  13. Nice job! I like the striped binding you chose. I am working on binding at the moment. Amazing how long it takes. Mostly because I go too slow, I think. I have a hexy project on deck with the same Kate Spain fabric!

  16. I love this quilt, but I can't figure out how it could be 30 by 40 if the hexis are only two inches. I'm thinking of making one, so I'd love to be sure of the size.

    1. They are actually close to 4 inches through the widest part of the hexagon. The template I used is on Geta's Quilting Studio at http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.com/2013/01/tips-for-cutting-hexagon-templates.html. It might help if you see the templates in the different sizes. I used the 2" templates and stretched it a little because I was using 5" fabric squares from a charm pack and I wanted to use as much fabric as possible. So mine are actually slightly larger than 2" hexagons.
