Half Hexie Pillow

 I've been having fun playing with 
Lori's (Bee In My Bonnet)
new Hexie Half Rulers
 Our friend Sherri (A Quilting Life)
offers a free tutorial 
using Lori's rulers
to make a 
Half Hexie Pillow
*see tutorial 
 Sherri asked me if I would also make a pillow
to be part of her
Half Hexie Pillow Parade
I was happy to be invited 
and said yes immediately!
 The pillow worked up quickly
using the smaller template.
The Hexie Half Rulers
are well made, easy to use,
and are charm pack friendly.
The rulers can be found in Lori's 
Etsy Shop
 Stephanie (stuph.from.steph) had given me a 
5" Charm pack of
 Quilt Blocks 
and I've been looking for 
the perfect project to
dip into them.
 Sherri's tutorial is for a 14" pillow,
but I had a
12" X 24" pillow form
I've been wanting to use.
I adapted her tutorial to use
8 rows across
and 
6 rows down of 
Half Hexie's
 One of the things I have learned while 
using the template, 
is that small print fabrics 
without a directional pattern
 work best.
Can you see how some of the blocks
look better visually than others?
Sherri's 
Half Hexie Pillow Parade 
will be shown on her blog
this Friday the 22nd.
*just three days away!
Thanks Sherri for the invite
to play along.

I love it Nedra!...and I think that even the larger prints look awesome even if the prints are not aligned.
I wouldn't worry...it's the new way!!
Haphazard and fun and scrappy!
I love the fabric line you used!
