Show and tell…

Jeannette Kling emailed this photo of her Hexie Garden quilt hanging in the Naples Quilt Show where it earned an Honorable Mention. She says she was so happy while making this quilt and it was great fun finding the fabric, especially for the fussy cutting around the small hexie flowers.

The hand applique was done by Jeannette Kling and Judy Ettema of Torch Lake Quilting did the machine quilting. I say well done all round! Thank you, Jennette, for sharing your wonderful quilt with us!

The Hexie Garden Quilt will be here soon!

I get to finally show you one of the quilts I’ve been working on, the Hexie Garden Quilt!


Hexie Garden Quilt finished quilt size: 61 1/2″ x 69 3/4″

The pattern pack has these 9 blocks that are graphic, fun, and full of movement! Each 16 1/2” x 19 1/4” finished size block has 6 wedges. The individual flowers are appliqued onto a block, trimmed into a wedge shape, and sewn together. The sewing takes a lot less time than you would imagine… these really are fast blocks.

The blocks are also lovely when used by themselves. I made another, smaller quilt that is included as a bonus in the pattern pack. My quilt, Tequila Sunrise, is improvisationally pieced, but there are measurements included for those of you who prefer that.


The pattern pack will be available in mid-July. Click here to pre-order your very own Hexie Garden Quilt pattern pack!
