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!
