A few months ago, I won some Hexie Templates from a giveaway at Jane's Quilting. I used some leftover scraps from a baby quilt and added some yellow swirl fabric, along with the monkeys, and the stars. They make such a cute combination.
The back is a fat quarter of Barenstain Bears. The binding is more of the swirl fabric, amazing how different it looks with different applications.
I don't usually machine quilt, but with such a small project, I practiced a little straight line stitching. I crisscrossed straight lines to make a diamond pattern. I really like how the diamonds make honeycombs of some sections, while creating a frame for others. I used Gutterman Thread in a medium shade of cream, which worked really well. This will go to my niece for her birthday in September.
