Half Hexagons for a Quick Finish

I was attempting to catch up on blog reading and discovered a cute baby quilt made by Cynthia @ Quilting is More Fun than Housework.  I was too tired to sew when I got home from work on Friday, so I pulled out my Accuquilt Go and starting cutting half hexagons.

I cut into a piece of Island Batik Mermaid Cove.  And before too long, there was a baby quilt.

An all-over stipple for a quick finish.  I even quilted my name.

I also used the Mermaid Cove for the binding.

I have a lot of WIPs that need to be finished, but this pieced together so quickly and was a mindless project, so I kept going until it was finished.

  1. I love that Cynthia's quilt inspired you to make this one. What a fun print to use; looks great!

  2. This is wonderful! I like that die, will have to add to my one day list!

  3. What an adorable quilt! Perfect colors for that Mermaid fabric. Thanks for linking up!

  4. A mindless project can be a blessing and calming! It is a lovely finish!

  5. Super cute finish Anja! I love easy and mindless projects once in a while. :-)

  6. I can't believe you finished this quilt in the blink of an eye. I was excited when I saw it on Cynthia's blog, but never got farther than filing away the idea in my mind. I love the happy, bright colors and the mermaid batik. Thanks for sharing your quilt and reinforcing the idea that I have to make one of my own.

  7. In my wildest dreams could that lovely stipple be quick! I can do the piecing quickly enough, but the quilting takes me forever . You ended up with a beautiful quilt

  8. Wow, this is awesome! Love the colors! I enjoyed Cynthia's version as well and love your interpretation--it's great with the mermaids! So fun!

  9. Jealous that you have the half hexie die! But, I will be strong and NOT start anything new for the rest of this month.... hopefully. Great start and finish.
