This beautiful 1/2 yd. bundle was assembled as a collaboration with Cottoneer. It keeps selling out within 24 hours of going live, but I just got the news that it will be restocked (for the third time) later this evening! Yippy!

The Perfect Christmas Quilting Fabric

To make this Hexie Stripe quilt, all you need is 1/2 yd. cuts of 9 different fabrics. I've been asked many times if you can make this quilt using a jelly roll and the answer is yes, however, you will waste more fabric and need more than one jelly roll. So maybe save that adorable jelly roll for this free jelly roll pattern?

I've linked to various fabric shops for the fabrics used, however if you keep checking in with Cottoneer you can source them all from one place.

Hexie Stripe Sewing Tips

I have three big tips to pass along when sewing this quilt:

  1. Check out the MANY sewing-triangles resources here on the SQ blog. Through the Mod Mountains sew along and the Perennial quilt tips post, we have a video for cutting triangles, sewing triangles into rows, and pressing rows. If you have any hesitation about assembling a quilt with triangles, first check out these short videos.
  2. If you sew a seam slightly larger than a 1/4" your triangles will end up a little bit shorter than 6 1/2" high. That's OK. As long as all of your triangles are the same size they will still sew together beautifully.
  3. If you are using a flat-top triangle ruler, line up the base of the triangle with the 6 1/2" guideline and cut past the tip of your ruler so that your triangles all have points. You want to make sure that each fabric strip in the triangles maintain the same width so your seams line up when you sew your rows together.

Once her quilt was finished she machine stitched her binding to the quilt and then used the same running stitch from the hand quilting video to flip and tack her binding down. Find a quilt binding tutorial here - How to Sew Binding to a Quilt.
