I have blogged about this quilt quite a bit on Instagram and suddenly realized today I have never blogged about it here officially, and since the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop has kicked off and I'm meeting all these great new quilters, I thought id share some older quilts!
This quilt is Hexie Framed (pattern by Emily Dennis). It is a total labor of love, let me tell you! lol. While the pattern is beyond easy to follow, and the tutorial is great, the only real struggle with this quilt is the hours and hours of cutting all those half hexies and border pieces!
Using a jelly roll precut will help you immensely with time on this quilt. I used a Color Theory Jelly Roll by V & Co and a Kona Solids in 'Snow' Jelly Roll. Then I chose a grey & white polka dot cotton backing and used my leftover scrap pieces to do a super scrappy binding (each scrap binding piece was only 2-3 inches wide).
This quilt took several weeks for me to finish. I am not the kind of quilter who has several WIP's laying around, I like to start & finish one project before beginning another. So I worked on this daily, whenever i found time, until it was done. Even though it was a lot of work... it was so worth it!
If you're a little uneasy about the Y seams in a hexagon quilt - fear no more! No Y seams in this pattern, you should totally give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by! And if you're visiting from the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers group, nice to meet you :)
