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!
