Happy Friday! Things just won’t settle down around here. Try as I might, drama of some sort or another keeps sneaking in and disrupting my routine. Despite that, I’ve managed to make progress with some of the gorgeous Kaffe pre cuts Free Spirit sent me. Isn’t it amazing how a little handwork can help your sanity?The pre cut stack of hexies is extremely convenient. Extremely! All I needed to do was start prepping the pieces and sew them together. All that drama is time consuming, so a smaller project was needed. I choose to make a pillow cover for a rectangular pillow. My pillow is 12″ x 18″ so that’s what I made. You can tailor the field of hexies to suit your pillow size.I chose to float the hexies on a white cotton canvas background. On the back, I added a four column hexie about 4″ off center for a bit of interest on the back. The pillow has a 12″ invisible zipper. There are sufficient pre cut hexies to make two of these pillows. A matching pair would be perfect for opposite ends of a couch. Or on a bed. Or in wing back chairs. Lots of options.
I put together a handy guide so you can make your own. Click here for the pdf. You can find the pre cuts at The Missouri Quilt Shop and on Amazon from Fabric Square Shop. Check your favorite shops to see if they’re carrying it too.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Happy sewing!
