reverie.

reverie.
i give y'all reverie.

a million and a half years ago i bought a wholecloth quilt from target.
it had a printed design of hexagons with frames and sashing.
i tried (for years!) to figure out how to easily break down the construction and avoid y seams.
not to mention, making sure it was something that could be pieced quickly.
hello, mom of four.

in all honesty, i just couldn't figure out how to do it.
so, this design just sat there. for like ever.
then, miss julie herman came to the rescue when she designed the hex n more ruler.
(hey, jules. xoxo.)

hex n more ruler.
now, don't let the fact that you need to use a specialty ruler stop you from making this quilt.
it's so very easy to use.
and it makes this quilt a breeze to construct.
promise.

reverie.
well, the construction was figured out, but i needed the perfect fabrics.
i had these two stacks of lovelies hanging around.
i knew that i loved them together, but i wasn't sure how to implement them properly.
so, i said to heck with it, untied them, and mixed them all up.

left stack: honey honey by kate spain for moda
right stack: simply style by v and co for moda

reverie fabrics.
the result was this lovely stack.
to me, it was perfect.
*sigh*

reverie.
and here's the end result.
*big, dreamy sigh*

oh, and i have an all prints version in the works now.
i'll show y'all that one when it's finished.

i love this design.
i'm hoping y'all will love it like i do.

size = 66" x 84"

So is this like your favorite quilt ever? (I remember that Target quilt. I asked you about it once. I've been waiting for this pattern ever since. I knew you could do it!)

Can this pattern be made with precut hexagons as well? I've been looking everywhere for a pattern exactly like this!

Sharon said...

Very cute pattern! I love those fabrics, too. Can't go wrong with Kate Spain or V.

Very cute! And of course anything done with Hex n Mor or Sidekick is easy to cut! Hmm...one more on the list. But first I have to put together Impromptu, all blocks done but haven't had anytime to lay it out yet.
