While I knew my pattern would be in this issue, I had NO idea she would be a Cover Girl!
And I think it turned out to be such a cute baby quilt! I'll be all ready for grandbabies when they come...
Such a simple quilt to make, using half-hexagons sewn in vertical rows; NO Y-seams! They rated it "Easy". I used a Hexie-Half ruler by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. The fabrics are all Basics from Riley Blake.
The quilt also features my favorite dimensional folded hexagons I call HEXAGAMI for the flower centers, top-knot and eyeballs on the little sheep. I happened to be demonstrating these Hexagami Make & Takes at the Riley Blake booth at Quilt Market last May when Quiltmaker editors Carolyn and Diane stopped by and saw how I was planning to use these as flower centers on my new "Hexie Meadow" quilt top. They asked if I'd like to submit it to the magazine. *Ü* I said yes.
What a fun HEXAGONAL year it's been! You can see all my hexie projects and adventures HERE. Next, I'll be playing with new half-hexagon AccuQuilt dies... I see a class coming soon!
Look for your copy of Quiltmaker, on newsstands April 8th! You can also purchase the magazine online or as a digital copy HERE.
