It's been ages since I pulled out the sewing machine and created something halfway decent. But as I mentioned in the last post, I had a one year old that was in great need of an awesome present. I wanted to give her something that she would potentially adore and love and drag around until it fell apart. I think I hit the nail on the proverbial head with this one, she's a big fan of it.

I bought a pack of pre-cut hexagons, definitely wouldn't have been worth it to cut all those out. Laid out my design, sewed them all together, and wa-la--instant baby quilt.

I wanted it to be super soft and snugly, so I used flannel for my backing. I stitched in the ditch around the edge between my quilt front and border. Then, I went around one of the hexagon flowers on the front to create a design on the back, also keeping it together. Hard to see, but one of the flowers actually was right in the middle of the back, unplanned perfection.


  1. So cool. Hopefully someday, I will be able to sew things like that!=)

  2. Ooh... I love it! You make the cutest things!


  3. That is adorable! I am a fan of soft, cuddly blankets!
