    Baby Christmas I Spy quilt in hexagons

    Here is another quilt from Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts! Two summers ago I participated in an exchange of 7.5 inch Christmas squares on with individuals from the Quilting Board. I never knew what I would do with these squares until my newest granddaughter Gemma Elizabeth was born. Previously, I had made her sisters matching Christmas quilts from another block exchange I had done with my guild. The Hexagon Hip Hop was the perfect pattern is use the squares and create for Gemma an I Spy Christmas quilt. The pattern orginal called for layer cakes but I just followed their method using the 7.5 inch squares and I must say it turned out great. We all have to adapt patterns to suit ourselves, just like a recipe can be tweeked to our tastebuds so can a quilt pattern. Merry Christmas Gemma and have fun with your I Spy as you grow older!

    Did you have to hand piece them? I've never done hexagons but fear hand sewing them together will not turn out well. It's beautiful!

    No hand piecing here just trapezoids sewn together in strips and then strips sewn together. They are truly two piecing sewn together in the middle
