Mini Quilt Monday :: Cotton + Steel Hexies

As I've joined several mini quilt swaps on IG that are coming up I'm bringing back Mini Quilt Monday. I'm even considering turning it into a link-up so if you have any interest in sharing your own mini quilts let me know in the comments and thank you :-)

So this is my Cotton + Steel Hexies mini - made using this tutorial from Nicole at Modern Handcraft. Hexies have never been my thing but I think this method might have changed that forever. 
I used all C+S fabrics as well as Netorious in Cloud Silver for the back ground. I'm loving this print in both the sparkly and white color ways for back ground fabrics - they add a little interest without overpowering the design. 

This was for a one-on-one swap with a new member of our West Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild (Rachel) and I'll share the mini she made me in a post all it's own. It's a stunner.

I followed all Nicole's directions to a T and they worked great.
This finished at 21" square and I was thrilled with how it turned out.
Don't be surprised to see more hexies done with way around here!


  1. I just love this! Excellent work! I'm thinking about my C+S mini swap again and this has my gears turning.

  2. This is beautiful! I really want to try this method too. And yes about the Monday link up!

  3. I'd love for you to teach a class in this - even though the tutorial is great. :)

  4. Natural cotton apparel in this manner has various focal points over cotton clothes that are synthetically treated to make them prettier. women silk dress
