Ruby Hexagons Quilt by The Life of Riley


I'm excited to show you today's quilt! It's a gorgeous baby gift made by Rachel of The Life of Riley.  I'm excited because it is a little different than most quilts we feature, it's all hexies!  So sweet and a great baby gift.  Check out The Life of Riley, she's a great quilter as seen here on her 2010-2011 finishes and 2012 finishes but she's also a great cook!  She's got a great list of yummy recipes too!
The quilt is finished and delivered!  Welcome baby Lucy!

 99 Hexes.  33 fabrics - 3 of each in the quilt top.  80 diamonds.  20 half diamonds.  8 triangles and 4 half triangles.  The hexagon fabric is from  the Ruby line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  The white is a white on white leaf pattern.
 The hexes were pieced into rows by machine, the diamonds and triangles were pieced in by hand.  The border was done by machine.
 The back is a solid piece of flannel also from the Ruby line.  Soft as butter!
 I did some free motion quilting of flowers and leaves.
