Gypsy Girl Mini Hexie Quilt

by Julie Hirt

According to my Instagram feed I’ve these hexies pieced, and unfinished, since June of 2014. Oops.

This was my first English Paper Piecing project and I worked on it sporadically for a year.

Note to self:  Hole punch the paper – it’s much easier to remove.

The back looked a mess.

This was hand pieced and I originally wanted to hand quilt it.  Hand quilting is just plain daunting to me (even on something this small). Since it’s been sitting around for over a year I decided to machine quilt.

The backing is a vintage sheet cut from my stash.

I used a charm pack cut into 2.5″ squares. My hexagon sides are 1″ and stitched together it’s about a 19″ square, trimmed.

This is the first time I’ve added flange and I’m in love. Will definitely be doing this on regular quilts in the future.

Now that I know exactly what I can get out of a charm pack, I’ll be doing this again. I love mini quilts and use them as table toppers, under centerpieces and as wall hangings.
