Modern Hexagon Baby Quilt

I managed to finish one of the quilts I rediscovered the other day!


The Hexagon blocks that begged to be a baby quilt have been transformed into a sweet little baby quilt/playmat measuring approximately 48" square. I used the Merry Go Round Pattern by American Jane to make the blocks


I machine quilted it following the seams of the blocks, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The hexagon pattern really shows up on the back of the quilt.


This is also the first time I have managed to machine sew a binding that I am happy with :) I used the green Eyelet print from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy because they remind me of little seedlings - perfect for a baby quilt I think!


I am more than a little bit in love with this quilt and briefly considered having a fourth child just so I could use this quilt! However I have come to my senses and have listed it in my new little Etsy shop, and I'm hoping it sells before I get broody again ;)


Fabric used is mainly It's a Hoot by Momo for Moda and the backing is a print from the Bliss line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.


I've also added more destash fabric to the shop if anyone is interested - Thanks to everyone who has helped me tidy up so far! The discount code opening10 still gives you 10% off anything you buy :)


Happy Monday!
