Now, down to business!
This is the Hexie I Spy quilt I made for my kids this fall and entered it into the Festival of Hexagons contest. I was super excited when I won 1st place! Wow!
I had such a great time making this quilt using all the fun I Spy charms I'd gotten from two swaps. The idea for this quilt had been running around in my brain for months but the contest was just the motivation I needed to actually get it done.
It's a fun quilt to use and actually play I spy on and it's a great size for kids to snuggle under.
The hexagons are machine appliqued onto the background fabric and then I quilted around the star.
This was my first hexie quilt and my first I Spy quilt. Now, what to make with my leftover charms....
