Color Hex Quilt Pattern

I'm excited to share with you my newest quilt pattern, Color Hex! I created this quilt for my Creative Fabric Selection class at Sewing Summit, but I knew I wanted to share it with you all too!

It was inspired by a pouch that I made earlier in the year using english paper pieced hexagons to create a color wheel! So many color wheel type quilts are circular, naturally.  I wanted to do something a little different and hexagons seemed like the way to go!

This quilt uses half-hexagons so there are no funky Y-seams or anything! The quilt finishes at 45" square, perfect for a new baby or to hang in your sewing room!

Okay, you really just want to see more photos, right?

I used a Blooming Poppies tutorial on quilting concentric circles, it was really helpful! I used my walking foot, and quilted it with Aurifil 50wt #2600 thread.  I love how it sinks into the quilt!

I love this quilt! I can't wait to find a place to hang it up! :)

The pattern also includes a second version of the quilt, Floral Hex!  They're constructed in the same way, but the floral version uses 19 prints, creating a giant flower!

You can find the pattern for this quilt in my shop, here.

  13. This is gorgeous, and awesome, and the colors are just so happy. I love the concentric circles quilting, but I'm kind of scared to try it on my machine. Seems like it is an awful lot of quilt wrangling (i.e., shoulder strain).
