I’ve been seeing some hexagon quilts around lately and falling in love with them, I quickly forgot the difficulty of my last hexagon project. This baby quilt is for a little guy named Dash born on Christmas eve.
I went through my stash and pulled out everything that was bluish or greenish without flowers. Then I threw in a dash of orange (pun intended). Funny, ‘cuz looking at it here it doesn’t look particularly boyish. I built the quilt mainly around Sarah Jane’s Children at Play.
Love this line of fabric! Lots of rockets, paper airplanes, and stripes for boys and hopscotch, florals, and gingham for girls.
The back was much easier to put together. If you look closely you can see where I didn’t have the backing pulled tightly enough during quilting. But thankfully the wrinkling process is very forgiving.
I have another hexagon project in mind – one that will definitely be easier.
