Mini Charms Challenge: Happy Hexi Flowers
My favorite thing to do with mini charms is English Paper Piecing (EPP). My free tutorial is a baby quilt called Happy Hexi Flowers.
I love making EPP hexagon flowers. Putting them together into a quilt is another story. I have a couple projects that won’t be done any time soon. I wanted to make a quilt that was as fun to make as the hexagon flowers are. Happy Hexi Flowers is just that!
I wanted minimal quilting on this quilt, so I started by quilting through the sashing. I decided to add more quilting as an accent with large stitch hand quilting.
This quilt was made with Jen Kingwell’s Gardenvale. It paired perfectly with Zen Chic’s new line called Paper. This one is bright and cheery.
My first version was sweet. I used Ambleside by Brenda Riddle Designs. The background for this one is Moda linen look fabric. I have gone through an entire bolt of it already. I didn’t have quite enough binding, and I couldn’t find something close, so I decided to contrast. I had a couple charm squares left that I added to the binding. It turned out to be one of those happy problems. I love it! This one is also hand quilted, but I used light pink that doesn’t show up very well.
This is definitely one I will make again. Next time I think I will make it bed size.
