I’m sneaking in one last post before I disappear for a few weeks on a much needed vacation & blogging break. I finished the mini quilt I’m making for my partner in the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap, and I just have to share! I have loved working on this quilt, and I’m pretty certain my partner will love it, too! Nicole at Modern Handcraft has a wonderful tutorial on this short-cut hexagon quilting method. I’ve done some blogging (and a lot of Instagramming) about my progress on the quilt, which you can read here and here.
Are you ready for a total photograph color explosion? Okay, good. I took a LOT of photos of this baby, and in my usual style I can’t choose just one.

Beautiful! Did you only sew the hexies with your quilting? I can’t see the stitching…
That is gorgeous! I love how you have used the color and shaped the negative space.
This turned out to be absolutely stunning! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and wonderful break. I look forward to seeing what you make in the new year! 🙂
This looks fantastic. I love how you’ve used the botanics print as binding, it’s one of my all time favourite fabrics and I don’t recall ever seeing it used as binding before.
Wow! Just wow! That is jawdroppingly beautiful – it looks like seeing a rainbow through raindrops 🙂
Really like this! I’m only starting my miniquilt now. Hoping to have fun with rainbow colour over the break. your’s turned out great – lucky partner!
Yep it’s awesome!!! I’m glad you showed us lots of photos, it really is beautiful and most definitely on my to-do list. Enjoy your break 🙂
This is fabulous. I’ve been admiring this hex technique for awhile now and wouldn’t mind giving it a go. I’m yet to start on my mini so maybe it’s a good time to try it. I love this so much and I love the photos – great blog post!
