Hexactly Quilt

Posted on July 28, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in Quilts

I’d like to show you a quilt I made a few months ago for Dear Stella to hang in their booth at Quilt Market.

It’s called the Hexactly quilt, and it’s designed by Sam Hunter of Hunters Design Studio.

Isn’t this gorgeous?!

The folks at Dear Stella had me make the quilt using their Chroma Basics collection — and it only used half the colors they have available! These are great basics that will mix with so many prints, and they give a bit more texture than a plain solid when you need it.

Check out Dear Stella’s blog post to see some other great projects made using the Chroma Basics collection (which is by Rae Ritchie).

This particular pattern affords you lots of negative space to fill with modern quilting, if you’re into that sort of thing! You can get the pattern HERE. And don’t be scared — there are NO Y-seams in this quilt — it’s super easy and fast!

Here — I’ll give you a chance at a head start. Since I had some bits and pieces left over from making my version, I’m having a give-away for a starter pack so you can make your own Hexactly quilt. Up for grabs is TWO packets of 29 9″ squares of all the colors shown in the quilt above. All you’ll need to do is choose the background of your choice to go with them, and snag a copy of the pattern from Sam! Or choose another project to use the squares in — I’m sure there are plenty of ideas out there!

To have a chance to win one of the packets, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post.

I’ll draw for two winners on Tuesday, August 1st.

UPDATE: The winners are Cynthia and Donna! Thanks, everyone, for playing along!

    I love the modern simplicity of this quilt, the color transitions and the stacked hexagons. And what a great negative space to practice quilting on! Great job to you and Sam Hunter.

    I’m in the mood for hexagons right now! I think I’m going to start an obnoxiously long-term hand piecing project with them. Now to find the right design!

    I’m curious about how the hexs are set together. I just finished an “I Spy” quilt using hexs and triangles, but the hexs were all the same size.

    Great job. Very modern looking. With my husband & 2 dogs there is no way I use large amounts of very light fabric. . . . LOL

    You don’t have to put me in the drawing. . .I have way too much fabric as it is; but I did want to comment on the quilt.

    Have a lovely day.

    I’ve been making quilts that go to children who are hospitalized. I’ll bet one of them would love to have a modern quilt. Please enter my name in this drawing, and thanks for your generosity.

    Hexie are in everything and they are especially simple and
    Complicated in your quilt. I really like the softness of the coloring – very well done!

  17. Donna says:

    Thank you for the collection of fabric. It will be fun to include them in a project.
