Hexie Pillow - Reverie Version

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

Hi friends, 

Today I am happy to share a new Hexie Pillow creation using a new line by Ruby Star Society called Reverie. This fabric line by Melody Miller has florals and a beautiful range of colors - making it a perfect match for a Hexie Pillow!

This was created using a mini charm pack - a set of 42 - 2.5" squares of fabric - (you can find it here) that contains the entire fabric line. I created the Hexie Pillow pattern to give you the full Modern Hexies technique and provide you with a way of using a mini charm pack!

I decided to make my layout flow with the colors in the line instead of an all over random placement. There are 33 fabrics in this particular line so there are a few spots that have double the same fabric.

For my backing I used a colorful Starry print for the backing and added a zipper for the enclosure. You can find my zipper tutorial here!
