Finished - AMH Hexi Pillow








Well this winter slow sewing project certainly didn't last as long as I thought it would.  One hundred EPP 1'' hexis have turned into a small pillow approximately 16" x 14". Circles  (The Scout's favourite whisky glass made the perfect template) were  hand quilted with a variegated thread from Wildflowers by Caron .  Even the back of the pillow front looks pretty.

Rummaging through my stash looking for something suitable for backing, I came across some velveteen from AMH Loulouthi range, that had come in a scrap pack I purchased a long time ago. This was the perfect project to use it in.  The zipper was going to be concealed, however I couldn't quite get the design to line up to my satisfaction, so decided to leave it exposed..  I adore the sumptuous feel of velveteen, but it is a fabric that frayed terribly when I was working with it.
Binding is a solid from Freespirit Designer solids in Tropical.

I didn't have quite the right size pillow inner, so I will probably need to cut one down to fit it properly, hopefully that will eliminate the pointy corners and curved sides.

Now that this is finished, I need to get my Liberty Bloomsbury quilt backed and basted, so I have another winter slow sewing project to do in the evenings.

  1. We have twin hexie cushions! I really love the circular quilting- its a perfect way to feature that amazing fabric. Slow stitching winter projects are the best, aren't they! I have a baby quilt that needs basting today for some slow stitching too!
