Today I am excited to share a bit of work that has been keeping me busy the past couple of months for this past Quilt Market – Hexie Pillows!
United Notions – Moda Fabrics is now carrying my Modern Handcraft pattern line and to celebrate I created some of my Hexie Pillows using some of the new lines that will be available soon!
Moda is well known for their fabrics and especially pre-cuts. The mini charm packs were my inspiration for the Hexie Pillow because of the number of 2.5″ squares in one package – 42. It only takes 41 squares sewn up into hexies to create your very own pillow! I love creating a hexie for each fabric in a fabric line so you can see how the fabric designer created a flow of color and pattern.
Below is an image of each of the six pillows that I created. You can find a link to the fabric designer’s info in case you want to keep your eyes peeled for that line when it releases.
(edited – drawing is now over, congrats to our winner Lauren Welsh!)
Skip to the comments below and let me know which line you are most excited about – I will have a drawing this next Monday – June 4th and will select one winner to receive a charm pack of several new lines that will be coming soon by Moda – how fun to get a bit of fabric before everyone else 🙂
Drawing is now over – congrats to our winner Lauren Welsh! Be sure to comment below for your chance to win a huge stack of 10 – 5″ charm squares featuring new lines yet to be released by Moda and a copy of my Hexie Pillow pattern! You must live in the United States (for shipping reasons) for this drawing. I will choose a name on Monday June 4th at 6pm eastern.
I will also have a drawing for 12 – 2.5″ mini charm packs and a copy of my Hexie Pillow pattern over on my Instagram page! Just look for @modernhandcraft and comment on that post for a chance to win that drawing as well.
