Vibrant Hexies

You might remember the story of this quilt from my previous post. I’ve been working so much with “low-volume” lately that I wanted to add in some vibrant colors! On top of that I’d been itching to get my hands on some hexies, so I figured, what better than combine the two!

Now you know me and my love of machine piecing! I decided on machine piecing all these gorgeous 4.5″ hexies for a fun, quick, and easy project. As if I couldn’t make the project any easier, I also machine appliqued the mass of hexies to four FQ’s I pieced for the background fabric.

I was originally thinking about quilting this on Lucey, but ultimately concluded my handy dandy walking foot would do the trick for the “vibration” look I was going for. Sometimes I think it’s fun revert back & to do all the work on my Bernina.

After she was washed up & crinkley, the raw edge appliqued hexies & quilting turned out just as I envisioned. I’m one happy girl!

I’m linking this baby quilt (measuring 34×40″) up for The Bloggers Quilt Festival! If you haven’t checked out the festival, be sure to stop by! There are some fantastic quilts linked up!!

Wonky Cross Placemat Tutorial

Week 5: Wonky Cross Placemat Tutorial

What you’ll need:
-Scrap strips of various widths
-[2] 7″ Squares of background fabric
-[3] 4″ Squares of background fabric
-[1] 9.5″ Square of background fabric
-[1] Fat Quarter for backing
-[1] Piece of batting measuring 15×19″
-[1] Piece of binding measuring 68″ long (I cut my binding at 2.5″ wide & fold in half length-wise)

—————————————————————————————————————

Step 1: Making your crosses
-Take your [2] 7″ & [3] 4″ Squares of background fabric & individually cut each one at a slight angle once as so:

-Next pick a scrap strip and sew to one side of an angled piece. Scissor clip the fabric strip once sewn (you don’t have to be precise, you’ll square up each block when they are complete). And Iron.

-Sew the second half of the background fabric to the raw edge of the strip. And iron.

-Cut the block again, this time a slight angle perpendicular.

-Repeat the previous process, adding a strip though the middle.

-Next square up blocks.
-Square the [3] small cross blocks to 3.5″
-Square the [2] large cross blocks to 6.5″

—————————————————————————————————————

Step 2: Assembling the placemat top
-Sew your [3] small cross blocks in a row.
-Sew you [2] large cross blocks together.


-Next sew your [3] wonky cross blocks to your 9.5″ back ground fabric.

 -Iron & sew your [2] large wonky crosses to your back ground fabric and small wonky crosses.
—————————————————————————————————————

Step 3: Quilting & Binding
-Baste your placemat top to your batting and backing fabric just as you would a quilt, making sure that your batting and backing fabric are larger than your top.

-Quilt the placemat (I quilted in straight lines every .5″).
-Once quilted, trim up and attach binding.

& voila! Your placemat is finished!

I hope you enjoy! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me! And be sure to check back each Tuesday for other projects for the 12 weeks of Christmas!
