Colour Blocked Modern Hexagon Quilt

I made this colour blocked modern hexagon quilt this week. It was finished yesterday but it was too windy and rainy for taking quilt photos. My son was my quilt holder today and he helped me get photos of this newest finish. This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop.

This quilt is made entirely with fabrics by designer Alison Glass from her fabric line called “Diving Board.” The fabrics are mermaid and ocean themed. The quilt is backed with a blue fabric by Mia Whittemore from her Flourish line.

The backing is a blue print by Mia Whittemore from her Flourish line for Windham Fabrics.

I used the Hex n’ More Ruler by Jaybird Quilts to cut the 8″ hexagons and tried to fussy cut the mermaids whenever possible.

I needed just one more piece of pink in my pink block of colour so I added this florescent pink mermaid in.

This quilt is quilted a quarter inch on either side of all the vertical seams with bright pink thread.
