TGIFF - Hexie Garden

It's done!  I finished my Hexie Garden quilt.

My mom bought me the kit to make this quilt some time last year.  I started cutting it out and piecing the blocks in August.  I finished piecing the top at a retreat in January and I quilted it last week.  I put the final stitches in the binding this morning... just in time for TGIFF!

I used my Hex N More ruler by Jaybird Quilts to cut out the hexagons and triangles for this quilt.

 I did change one of the fabrics in the kit.  The turquoise fabric in the center of the flowers is from my stash.  The kit had a solid dark grey for those triangles and I just felt the quilt needed a pop of something instead of the dull grey.  I am so happy I changed it!

I love orange and the orange fabric that was included in the kit for the binding was just perfect.

I love hexagons and this quilt was all machine pieced and so much fun to make.

 I am linking up to TGIFF over at my friend M-R's blog Quilt Matters.  She made an amazing little quilt using leftover half-square triangles... You should definitely go check it out!


  1. I have loved this one every stage of the way!

  2. Woo hoo! It's gorgeous, Ginette! Wow! I love the quilting you did on it and the binding colour is perfect. Did you use the long arm for the quilting?

  3. It's a beautiful quilt! Hexies on a sewing machine must be so much faster than English Paper Piecing them.
