Hexagon Wall Hanging Class Sample
And now back to good ole sewing and quilting posts!
I’ve been working on a Class Sample for the Hexagon wall-hanging in Hexagons Made Easy. I hope to teach the class locally (in Texas) and I have a spot to teach at the Houston Quilt Market this fall. (!!!!) I’ll have more details on that for you later, as we get closer to October.
So lets see the quilt:
It is made exactly the same way as the Hexagon Circle chapter in the book. Since this will be a kit, offered with the class in Houston, the size has been altered slightly to make for easier class and kit cutting.
I quilted this piece on my home sewing machine, since it is 30″ square. First up, making the quilt sandwich…. mmmmm….. sandwich….
Next I wanted to show you how much fuzz is on my free motion quilting foot. Is that “bearding” or just a dirty foot or what? Is it a problem? I did use a batting scrap from my longarmin’ friend- so I really don’t know what kind/brand it is. It was soft, so I grabbed it. That will NOT be the case for the kits. The Houston kits will have batting sponsorship from a wonderful brand. (details coming soon) But in the mean time- What’s up with the fuzz?
And some quilting fills. I used 4 total fills on this sample. This quilt design is perfect to make a quick project and practice those free motion quilting designs you’ve seen all over the internet, at quilt shows and in book stores. I love doing the free motion quilting.
Wanna see how the quilting designs turned out? All in all, not too bad. As always, click to enlarge the image.
One sample down. A few more to go. I know when I see quilts in books or in classes/shops, I love to see the different colorways. So I suppose it is fair to show you the original quilt here too- in the “original” colorway. Neutral colored cotton background, Anna Maria Horner scraps in the applique.
