In case you haven’t noticed, I have a bit of a quilting addiction. While I am not the fastest quilt-maker (quilter-er? quiltest?), I take pride in each of my creations. They’re kind of like my babies… a labor of love and they seem to develop their own “fabric personality”. My latest finished quilt definitely took on a personality all its own. My Hexi Quilt is fun, bright, colorful and just a little bit crazy :) Maybe a little bit like the person that created it? LOL. It’s easy to see that #ImAddictedToQuilting :)

Hexi Quilt using the pattern from Quilt Sampler Magazine Fall and Winter 2012 By Busy Being Jennifer

I used the “Sew Hexagons by Machine pattern from the Fall/Winter 2012 Quilt Sampler Magazine. (You can get a digital copy here)ย Using the template provided I cut hexagons. Lots and lots and lots of hexagons. You can check out my progress here, here and here. Its finished and photographed and now I get to show it off! :)

I mentioned in my last Work In Progress update that I was frustrated with the backing. It puckered. :( You can see it here on the back of the quilt. I was kinda P.O.’d about it.

Other than the puckering that happened on the back, I LOVE everything about this quilt. It’s a large crib size (approx. 55 x 33 inches) and would be perfect for a play blanket :) I started cutting more hexi’s for another quilt last night :) I’m gonna try to stick to boy colors this time :)

      I was going to put this one in the shop, but when the backing got messed up I decided not too. I'm starting on another one though! SO that might go in the shop :)

    BEAUTIFUL! Do you quilt it by hand or do you have a quilting machine? I’m curious because I learned to hand quilt and that is fine for the piecing it together ,but it takes TOO LONG to the quilting step.

    • JenniferJayne13 says:

      I do it all by machine. I'm a self taught quilter… I don't think I would have the patience to hand quilt. I would like to try it someday though :)
