Hand Pieced Hexi Quilt

I needed a break from sewing swap blocks the other day, so I pulled this out. I decided it is big enough and should be finished.

I searched through my stash and found this green print for the border.

I even fussed around with mitering the corners. Not the best work, but good enough for me.

Now, I just have to figure out how to quilt it.

Have a great day!

    I think you did a great job with the border miter. When you look at it far away, you can’t tell. Well done!

    This is so pretty and I love the border fabric. Good job on the mitered corners. I have only tried hexies once but didn’t get far, but I love how they look. Hugs,

    Pick seven hexies and make them into a flower, scatter them throughout the quilt and maybe some leaves with a bit of background fmq. I like it!

  10. What an awesome quilt!

    Are the hexies sewed together by hand??? I can’t figure it out — did you sew Y seams??

    Love your comment about the metered corners: it’s not perfect but it’s not good enough for me! That’s exactly the way I like to quilt! “Finished is better than perfect!”
