WIP: Customizing My EPP Hexie Quilt


This quilt is probably something I’ll share updates on every so often. I just keep thinking of neat ways to make it 100% perfect! I put it aside for a week or so to work on another quilting project, but once my new custom hexie fabric came in from spoonflower, I just HAD to start up on it again!

epp_hexie_custom_002Above you can see the fabric. I just printed off a hexagon like grid and doodled a bunch of quick designs using a brush pen. I then scanned it in and made it into a vector file. Then I replicated a few designs in different tones and added a few of my other fabric designs into some hexagons I left blank. I designed it to fit onto a fat quarter, and the hexagons are very specific to the size of my ongoing quilt.

epp_hexie_custom_003As you can see, it’s also very specific to my taste and my life in general. I included an illustration of my house that I did a few years back, plus my Daily Uniform fabric in different tones of black and gray. I want this quilt to be 100% ME, especially since it’s going to take forever to finish.

Now I’m super antsy to get this thing done, I just want to cuddle with it all so bad!!!!!!

  1. I love the custom hexies. Printing them into the hexagon shape is such a brilliant idea! I haven’t designed any Spoonflower fabric, but it’s on my to do list and I would love to make some hexies out of my own fabric!

    • I got even more antsy and started piecing some together just to see how the custom ones mixed in. I’m in love!!
      If you make some custom ones too let me know! I’d love to see. :)
