This month's theme at Le Challenge is "small". I chose to make a small project made of small pieces.
This small pillow measures 12 x 16 and was made using 2 inch hexies from my Denyse Schmidt fabric scraps. I wondered how smart I was to make something with such small pieces since I seemed to under-estimate the number of hexies I needed and found myself always adding more rows to the pillow.
It kept feeling like the project would never end.
The hexies went together rather fast, but then I made the decision to hand quilt the piece with echo quilting inside each hexie. Now the project really felt like it would never end.
Once I had the pillow cover together, I realized that it was way too big for my pillow form. I had to cut an inch off all sides of the hexies. Yikes!
But, I soon had a pillow cover and I think it turned out kinda cute.
I haven't decided yet if its going to be a Christmas present, or maybe I will keep it since it matches my Texas quilt (currently a WIP).
Linking up with the other "small" themed entries for this month's Le Challenge.
