It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Free printable instructions.
@Never Just Jennifer suggested stripey red for the binding and it was perfect for the frosty Christmas tree. The download I prepared for the branch can be downloaded here if you want to make some hexagon themed Christmas projects. There are 10 pages in the download with snowflake ideas and hexagon templates from Incompetech.
Diann from Little Penguin quilts modified the Hexie tree and made the cutest wall hanging with Christmas fabric and added a light to the top of the Christmas tree! I love that idea and might "borrow" that for mum's applique cushion I am making with these Christmassy fabrics!
This was the last of the three candle mats I managed for the workshop spacing the Hexies to create negative space stars. I think I might add more hand quilting to this one, I'm liking the perle cotton in different colours to lift this one a bit. Making it in all solids has left it a bit flat to me and I think some handwork on it will help!
So nearly there with the first of the Christmas makes. Feels good to have a few handmade gifts mixed in with the bought ones!
