Hexagons and Ruffles

Have you ever had one of those projects that you started and then became side tracked by another project...and another...and another, until you completely forgot about it? That is this little hexagon quilt.  A few years ago I absolutely fell in love with Kate Spain's Fandango line.  I bought a layer cake and some yardage and started making this quilt.  Have you ever made hexi's out of a layer cake? Its super easy and they come together quite nicely because you piece them in rows.

Today this little quilt was pulled back out.  I have a few fun ideas on how to finish it and one of them is a ruffled inner border. I love a ruffled border, but hate the time it takes to pull threads.

I'm thinking the aqua in this line will go nicely with my house.  Perhaps that's why I love this line so much.

Today I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Most of my projects are of the "got started, then got distracted by another project and then another and then another..." variety, alas :D

    This one of yours is super pretty though - good thing you're coming back to it! I'm intrigued by the ruffled border, thing. Never seen that done before!

  2. I am forever getting distracted - smart to pull out the project while you still love the line - it is a pretty one and that ruffle is interesting, hope to see it finished. Visiting today from WIP Wed :)

  3. This is super cute! I've cut all my hexi halves from some Amy Butler fabric and it has been sitting there waiting to be put together. This inspired me to get it started! I love the colors!
