Min Skatt (my treasure)

I finished up a new quilt top this week.   This started with a fat quarter bundle of Jenni Baker's Nordica.   I wanted to showcase the prints and the over sized hexies let me do just that.   I made a carboard template  to cut the hexi halves.  By no means an original idea but  I do think it is a  rather interesting spin on the traditional hexagon quilt block.  I used some gray and pink (really more of a salmon) from my stash along with another half yard of  one of the Nordica prints for the borders.  It has been a long time since I made a quilt  with borders and  it seems as though I spent as much time on them as I did piecing the  hexagon center!  The top finished at 80.5"  x 89.5".


  1. Giant hexies; that's awesome! The problem I've seen with hexies is that they're often too small to show the beauty of the fabric. Making oversized hexies is a great idea! The way you've tied the border colours and hexie colours together is perfect too. I love this quilt

    1. Thank you so much! I am having fun quilting it now.
