Hexie Pillow - Floradora Version

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

Hi friends,

Today I am excited to share my latest finish - my second of 2023 - a new Hexie Pillow using a new line by Ruby Star Society called Floradora!

This fabric line by designer Jen Hewett is a modern floral fabric full of bold blooms and fun geometric designs. The colors are a great addition to any Spring and Summer sewing - lots of green orange, yellow, pink, purple and blue. I love the pastel colors on this line with the pop of citrus and the darker navy blue.

This pillow was created using a mini charm pack - Moda makes mini charm packs that are (42) 2.5" square pieces of fabric with every fabric from a particular line. These are my absolute favorite for the Hexie Pillow pattern and a great way to make a project using an entire line!

This particular pillow was created using this charm pack - Floradora.

For the layout on this pillow I decided to gather up all of my prepared hexies in a color order that I loved and went to work.

For quilting I like to choose a thread that matches my background fabric, so in this case a cream color was perfect. 

Matching your background color always works with your hexies - because your background color likely compliments the hexies you made and it also melts into the background fabric (really great for hiding any wonky lines that might happen with quilting.)

Materials needed for this project:

I got to use my new labels again on this project. I ordered from Dutch Label company again, they made my original quilt labels years ago and I thought it might be fun to update them with my new logo.

I have this pillow available in my shop if you are interested in scooping it up! I am working on photographing some quilts this weekend to add - the studio is filling up with too many finished projects to keep for myself. 

If you would like to make a pillow of your own you can grab the PDF pattern here or the Printed version here

Thanks for stopping by today - happy sewing!
