A Lovely Year of Finishes - February Goal

Well January zoomed by so fast that I forgot to blog about or link up my January finish. Which makes me super sad as I did finish it and gave it a mini photo shoot and everything! I'll give it a post of its own later but here's a little sneak peek of it and then we'll move on to my February goal.

For February's goal I've chosen this fun little hexie project I've been working on. It's a gift for someone who loves red and orange and I added blue for balance and pink on a whim. I think these colours will be well received!

Rather than spreading the colours randomly I laid them out in a gradient from darker blue through paler blue, pink, red and around to orange. I love it so much!! I may need to make another...

The hexies are English Paper Pieced and each side finishes at one inch. I like to thread baste my hexies and sew them together with a whip stitch. The panel is already hand pieced and machine quilted with closely spaced straight lines which is (and I think will always be) my favourite way to quilt! I love the texture it creates. All that's left is to turn the panel into a little throw pillow and with a freshly serviced sewing machine and a new zipper in stock that won't take me long at all!


  1. Looking lovely. Hooray for a quick finish.

  2. That will be a lovely finish for February since it's a such a short month. Amazing isn't it, how just 3 days less and February seems to slip by... we're already 1/4 the way through. I look forward to seeing the finished pillow.

  3. Love all the bright colors in your hexies. It's gorgeous.

  4. This looks fabulous, can't wait to see the full reveal at the end of the month. I came really close to missing the January close off as well. I've decided to write ALYOF in big letters on my calendar in an attempt to remember to get the information out there, we'll see how it works. ;)

  5. Two wonderful finishes. You definitely have a penchant for smaller piees. =)
