Hexie Mini

I don't have a name for it, but hexie mini DONE!  While I do love it, I don't know that I will ever make one again.  122 hand sewn hexies - and it finishes at the size of a cupboard door, lol. 

For quilting I elected to use my machine wavey stitch.  I used lines of dark blue thread and orange thread.

For the binding I used a lovely lime Tula Pink fabric I had.  2 strips were not quite enough so I just added a scrap of a blue print from the scrap pile.  I will use this technique again - I like the interest it brings.

The backing is pieced from some blue paisley, a white on white print, the same light blue used in the binding, and a rectangle of grey.

I have not actually added a tag or name to the back yet - I am waiting for an order of swatchs from spoonflower to arrive with a load of tags I designed.  I am thinking this one will work.

I was not kidding when I said it was the size of a cabinet door - which is lovely since that is where it will be!


  1. I LOVE it on your cabinet door! So funny and yet so perfect! Nice finish!

    1. Emily - Funny and perfect is kinda my thinking when i see it daily! Odd place for a quilt (according to some) yet fits me and my style perfectly. I enjoy looking at it when I make coffee in the morning, as I wash dishes, and all thru the day at the various moments we go kitchen strolling :)

  2. Lovely and it looks good in your kitchen. I'm visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
