The couple this quilt is for asked for hexagons and I was a bit concerned. I knew I didn’t have time to hand piece. And it was for a boy, so I knew I wanted something other than the common flower garden lay out. When I saw this pattern, I was sold. Well, mostly sold, I did make a few adjustments. I didn’t want my hexagons to get cut off, so I nearly doubled the background triangles to extend the white to the edges. But I nearly followed a pattern, which is a big deal for me, I rarely have that kind of patience.
I’m so excited about triangles now! Seriously, I have triangles on the mind now and can’t wait to do them again. Maybe a a star layout?
I used a bold Ikea print for the back. I’m totally addicted to these right now. So many things to love about Ikea fabric for backs: Fun designs. Good prices. Wide width=no piecing needed for baby quilt backs. Just wish they would carry more quilting weight fabrics.
This is off in the mail to Chapel Hill Mennonite to welcome their newest baby!
