I used the fabric I had left over from the quilt I made for my grandpa. I love the grey (or is it gray? I can't ever decide), blue, green, and orange combo.
For the quilting, I just machine quilted some horizontal lines. It was pretty easy, I used my walking foot and just went back and forth across the quilt.
The quilt ended up being smaller then I expected and I ran out of fabric so I couldn't make it bigger...oops. But is is a good size for a car seat or stroller. It now has a new home with a friend of a friend who is expecting a baby boy.
To make this quilt, I started with 2" strips. I matched up 2 colors I liked together and sewed the 2 strips together. Then using the 60 degree angle on my quilting ruler, I cut the strips into triangles.
I ended up with two piles of triangles.
Which make two different hexagons.
Then I sewed the hexagons into halves by sewing 3 triangles together.
I laid out my hexagon halves into a pattern I liked and sewed them into strips. In the picture below, you can see how I laid out my hexagons on the left, and then on the right you can see how I sewed them into strips. I used the bottom half of some extra triangles on the end of each strip so I could cut straight across the top and bottom for binding.
Then all the strips got sewn together. Awesome hexagons, no annoying Y seams!
