Miniature Monday – hexie to quilt

As part of the #igneedlebookswap I received a lovely solitary hexie – it was the cutest. I asked my lovely Instagram community for any ideas and my lovely Instagram friend, Margaret, suggested I turn it into a miniature quilt. Perfect, that’s what I’ll make, a miniature quilt, so I can hang on the wall of my haberdashery shop. I drew some pieces, rectangles and corners, cut out pieces of paper and using the EPP method, created EPP so that I could ‘complete’ the quilt with the hexie as the main focal point. After sewing all the EPP pieces together I machine sewed the 6mm [1/4 inch] bias binding. I then finished the binding by hand and also added further focus on the hexie by accenting it with a running stitch. My father had made me some miniature coat hangers many years ago so this was perfect to hang my quilt on the back wall of the store.
