I’m super excited to introduce this new quilt pattern! A fun jelly roll friendly Hexie Quilt.
Hexagons are super popular right now in quilts and this is a fun twist to the classic Hexie quilt. I’ve yet to attempt a Y seam so this pattern is made up of half hexies which go together in rows and are much easier to piece. I recommend a good hexie ruler. I use this one.
The whole process of writing this pattern was a really fun one. I’m always up for a new challenge and I knew sooner or later I would attempt a pattern. My original Hexie Framed quilt resulted in a lot of requests for a pattern so it was the perfect opportunity to dive right in!
Hexie framed is the perfect Jelly Roll quilt as it uses 2.5″ strips. I love precuts and I love patterns that make them easy to use.
For the twin size I chose Vanessa Christensen’s new Color Theory Line. And I happened to have a fat eighth bundle on hand so I cut my strips from that. This hexie quilting pattern shows off fabric lines really well. It’s great for those fabrics you adore and really want to display.
I machine quilted this one with straight lines using my walking foot. I use this walking foot for my Janome machine.
I went with a gray 108″ wide backing and gray binding to match.
