Hexie Chains Quilt Pattern!

I'm so excited to finally share this quilt and accompanying pattern! I created this quilt a year ago as a custom order for my aunt. I love the design, and I think this is one of my favorite quilts!

The pattern is deceptively simple, and involves NO y-seams! It would be suitable for an intermediate quilter, or a confident beginner who is careful when handling pieces with bias edges.

I designed the quilt using the Hex N More ruler by Julie Herman of JayBird Quilts, but paper templates are also included if you don't have the ruler.

For my sample quilt, I chose fabrics from Bella and Glimma by Lotta Jansdotter. The large hexagons show off the prints really well! The background is a grey kona (ash, perhaps?), the border is yarn-dyed essex in denim, and the binding is a text print from Architextures.

I quilted the quilt in the "honeycomb" quilting style, which I found over at Crazy Mom Quilts!

You can find the Hexie Chains Quilt Pattern on Craftsy or Etsy!

Paper copies of most of my patterns are now available as well! Ruby Scissors Quilt Shop in Glens Falls, NY now carries them. I will update when they are available in more shops.

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to purchase a paper copy. I'm happy to ship them out to you!

Hexies for Liam

Last year in the chaos of moving to Seattle, I somehow forgot to make a baby quilt for one of my cousins! Her second child, and the first boy, was born last July and it wasn't until I received an invitation to his first birthday party that I realized I had never made him a baby quilt. I had these prints in my stash, so I thought I'd play around with some hexagons. I drafted a hexagon template based on the best size to use with fat quarters (my hexie template has 3" sides, if you'd like to replicate it). The fat quarter set that I had wasn't quite enough, so I pulled some other prints from my stash as well.
(Whoops, Matt is holding the quilt upside down here! That's what I get for quickly snapping some pictures just before packing up for our trip!)

I quilted it in an all over meandering with a green veriagated thread like I used here.

The binding is a print from Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry.

And on the back I used two flannels from my stash. The yellow is part of Anna Maria Horner's  collection (the softest flannel EVER!). And the green is a print from JoAnn's. It was too cute to pass up!

How cute are those animals?!?

At approximately 35" x 42", this quilt is still a great size for a toddler to snuggle under. And I just received a thank you from my cousin saying that Liam has been doing just that!
