New Friday Tutorial: The Sashed Half Hexagon Quilt

Make a Sashed Half Hexi Quilt with Jenny Doan of MSQC!

I love the way a simple sashing gives each block its own importance. Those little strips of fabric are pretty powerful! But sashing isn’t just for framing blocks; they’re so much more versatile than that! Today we’re adding strips of sashing to half hexies in a classic hexagon braid pattern to create a block as beautiful as a stained glass window!

Something so simple as a sashing creates a completely new look to the familiar Friendship Braid Pattern and this beautiful quilt features Victory Findlay Wolfe’s new fabric line, Mostly Manor! Isn’t it fabulous?

We just loved having Victoria Findlay Wolfe here along with Linda Nitzen from Sizzix for our retreat! It was such a blast and such a wonderful learning experience for all. Jenny even sat down with the retreaters and followed along with Victoria’s class she was so enthralled in it!

Laid out on the floor is Victoria’s Large Melon Double Wedding Ring Quilt, isn’t it stunning? The colors and fabrics are marvelous together giving this scrappy quilt so much character.

Linda, the Sizzix Quilting Manager, presented a quilt challenge to the MSQC employees to create a quilt/ quilted item 50×50 or smaller for a chance to win a Big Shot Pro and several dies! Here is our first place winning team!

Sizzix Challenge Winners

It’s a sore subject with the rest of the staff, (we are a very competitive group) but these lucky winners sure were happy and are enjoying their prize and their win was well deserving! They created an Interactive Children’s Playmat! All of the pieces were cut from Sizzix Dies and can be removed and rearranged on the mat for a super fun time! How fun and clever is that? 🙂
