Quilt: Mini Rainbow Hexie

I recently finished this original design mini rainbow hexie and sent it off to friends in Portland as a “Thank You” to them. One of these friends told me she enjoyed 6 primary colors together, so I started with a few primary color designs for mini and asked for her input. From there, I picked out a handful of coordinating solids to make this mini quilt and was off!

I machine pieced this using Riley Blake Designs Confetti Cottons solids and Aurifil 50 weight thread. The back features Riley Blake Designs fabric and Warm & Natural cotton batting. I machine quilting with a walking foot using Aurifil 50 wt, and finished with facing. I’m happy with how this original design turned out and the bright solids I chose are sure to brighten any room.

Quilt pattern experiments in Photoshop. How would I even piece this, friends? Paper piecing? #quiltdesign #quilt #quilting #quilts #photoshop #sewing #handmade #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2018 ...

More quilt designs in progress. Iโ€™m making a mini quilt for friends who did me a solid favor (and who happen to like 6 color/rainbow designs) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I would likely heavily quilt ones with more solid, and stitch the ditch on the others. Which would you choose? #quilt #quiltdesign #sewing #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #photoshop #quilting #originaldesign #stephskardalquiltsapril2018 ...

โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธand ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ, and wrong sides of quilt minis. Ready for quilt sandwiching and basting! I was going to bring this to my open sew to piece, but I guess Iโ€™m ahead of that schedule. #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #rileyblakedesigns #confetticottons #stephskardalquiltsapril2018 ...

Quilty orange. Iโ€™d rather be sewing, or even working, than sitting at the DMV waiting to renew my license. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌโ˜น๏ธ #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #rileyblakedesigns #confetticottons #stephskardalquiltsapril2018 ...
