Fourth of July Hexagons – a Finished Mini


This was an accidental finish! I made Mother’s Day gifts and realized that I can’t post about them before Mother’s Day like I had scheduled. So I scrambled around looking for something to quick finish, because a Friday without a finish is sad! In my hanging rack of bits and pieces, I found these. Timely! Already quilted! Perfect!

I have no idea when I made or quilted these. I think I gave the long version to my mother for, um, last Mother’s Day? Apparently I never blogged about it, so… Luckily I had plenty of time yesterday to stitch the binding down, as we raced from school to tennis match…and sat around…then to a district wide concert…and sat around…

Basic blue dots for the backing, a fake-bias stripe for the binding. And I used my new little labels! I ordered them from Tagtopia on Etsy. A wonderful shop to work with – I didn’t really know what I needed, and she walked me through the whole process.

Of course, Miss CC was there for the photo shoot. Always helpful, that one.

Approximately 18″ wide {from flat side to flat side, not point to point…how do you measure a hexagon anyway?}

Pattern: Easy Striped Table Runner {the leftover pieces!}

You’re all ready for Memorial Day as well! Thank you for linking to TGIFF!


These are great. I thought the same today as I was finishing my mom’s gift today….interestingly enough they are somewhat similar to what you are sharing today! 😉 (shape, not fabric)

You know who I am

Look at you using window lighting so well 🙂

What a lovely finish and so quickly. I’m entirely jealous!


Very festive and fun!! I thought this might be the year I do my first ‘patriotic’ quilt of some kind! Maybe! The backing color is so pretty!
