Holiday Hexie (and giveaway!)
My first true-blue pattern! This is a cute star-themed hexie in a perfect size for mugrugs and snack time. It's approximately 11.5" across, and holds a cute mug and some cookies like that's what it was designed for (because it was).
I made the original of this cute little hexie mugrug using scraps from the Doves in the Daylight mini-quilt I made for my mom's birthday this year. I had these odd, house-shaped striped pieces left, which I combined with iris Cloud 9 Cirrus solid scraps from my modern maker's club quilt. Add a little wasabi and the black polka-dot scrap in the middle, and it turned into a pretty sweet little Halloween mini. Plus, there's only four fabrics (or less!) and five different shapes, and really, it boils down to a classic nine-patch, so the top comes together in like, fifteen minutes. The star motif in the middle (it might be impossible for me to come up with a non-star quilt pattern) is totally translatable too, as evidenced by the fall and Christmas versions I've cranked out over the last couple days!
Speaking of Christmas... I'm so close to being in the Christmas spirit and to celebrate the holiday season officially starting next week plus the release of this cute little pattern later this week, I'm having a giveaway on IG! If you haven't seen it, go check it out and enter. One lucky winner will get a free pattern and the cute Santa hexie below, and if I hit a thousand followers before Thursday when I list the pattern, I'll make and send another one to a lucky commenter!
It doesn't take Thanksgiving season to make me grateful, but I am reminded at this time of year, especially this year as I've really jumped into all this quilt stuff, of all of the support I receive from all of you. And I especially want to call out my insta-bestie, Brooke, over at OhSewBrooke, who not only proofread but tested this little pattern at lightning-fast speed, and is the best cheerleader. Thanks, B!
