Joanns Premium Quilting Cotton Fabric was prepared in 12 inch strips since we are using a pattern from the Cricut Maker for the Half Hexie Quilt.
You can see that the Ipad is placed on the Cricut Maker and connected via bluetooth. (You can connect any smart phone, Ipad, Laptop or Computer with the Cricut Maker? The Half Hexie Quilt is pulled up through the free Cricut Design Space. After the fabric was cut in widths of 12 inches wide, I placed the premium quilting cotton fabric pretty side down on the pink Cricut FabricGrip Cutting Mat and now ready to cut Half Hexie Pieces for the quilt top.
Look at the perfectly cut out Half Hexies with the pdf printed out pattern from Cricut Design Space.
Use the pattern within Cricut Design Space to lay out your 1930’s fabric Half Hexies in the right order.
The Joanns Premium Quilting Cotton looks just divine as the Half Hexie Squares are all laid out in the right order. Wouldn’t you love to snuggle up with this happy quilt!
Sew the Half Hexie Shapes together at a 45 degree angle. You can see how the shapes are laid out prior to stitching together.
Here is a close up of how to lay out your half hexie shapes to then stitch together in a long row.
Notice how each half hexie shape is laid out on the sewing machine to stitch at a consistent 1/4 seam for the half hexie squares.
Keep sewing the Half Hexies together in rows of five.
Carefully Pin together two strips of 5 half hexies where the seams meet.
I’m not one to press my seams open but when matching seams, I push the flaps opposite directions. Here is a close up shot of the pinning
Stitch each row of five half hexies together at a 1/4 inch seam.
Open your two strips press and look at how your seams are matching up. Isn’t the Joanns Premium Quilting Cotton just beautiful? I admire the colors, design, quality and feel of the fabric.
Now stitch together your rows of two strips into four strips and keep continuing to build the quilt together.
Look at the Half Hexie Quilt with Joanns Premium Quilting Cotton Fabric Quilt Top come together. I am beyond pleased and can’t wait to quilt it now! I will use a 80/20 batting purchased from Joanns for the quilt and using extra fabric that I purchased for the backing. I have a long arm quilting machine but this quilt would be simple to quilt on a domestic sewing machine accentuating the shape of the hexie by stitching in the ditch and then sewing 1/2 inch inside the circumference of each hexie! PS…. I kind of wished I would have just used by domestic machine!
