For the last few weeks I have been joining flowers and stars for my first hexie quilt. Turns out that its really hard and I hate doing it. I am plugging along though.
The good news is I have found a new hexie pattern to work on while on the go. I found it on Pinterest, but can't copy the picture to this blog. You can see it in the 4th picture here. I will probably use a lime green instead of the teal in the original. Also, I'm using larger hexies this time around and am only making it a more manageable 50 x 70". This hexagon punch is made by Fiskars and makes hexagons with one inch sides. I found mine at Joann's- make sure you take a coupon ;)
Also, this type of punch doesn't seem to punch the cardboard cereal boxes easily, you have to use the thinner ones. Compare it to the smaller hexies I used in the first quilt- see the blue one on the yellow flower? I may even try to hand quilt it if I'm feeling especially adventurous!
Also, I made a new baby quilt. The side border is made of 2 x 3.5 inch rectangles that I pieced it leader/ender style.
This one is totally scrappy and I just stuck with pastels- some fat quarters, some shirts, a tea towel, and a pair of floral PJ bottoms.
No batting, flannel green polka-dots for the backing and the binding is from a lovely, pale pink thrift store shirt.
