I used leftover hexies from Barbara B's Morris Hexathon and appliqued each one on a 14" square. Well, that looked a little sparse so decided to add little rosettes in between. It took a while to figure out the hst inner border but was happy with the result. The outer border is a floral stripe. (The color is off in this pic.)
I sewed the little hexies together so that they all faced the same direction. Do you do it this way? Or do you make them go around like a wheel all facing the center?
I quilted diagonal lines 1/2" apart framing the center. . .
. . . straight lines in the half square triangles and cross-hatch in the floral border.
After sewing on a sleeve, I hung the quilt in the hallway:) Two things I realized: I like a much scrappier-looking quilt and I'm not crazy about doing mitered corners, lol!
If you remember, last month I joined Wendy The Constant Quilter to make a little quilt every month so this is mine for February. It was fast and easy because I used leftover hsts from several projects. Do you recognize the ones from the quilt above?? Kyle at Timeless Traditions made one and so did Janet Rogue Quilter.
I did simple machine quilting in an allover cross-hatch (oops, that's a shadow of my camera in the lower left). There's still time to join in the fun! I've already started the one for March :)
Enjoy your week!
