Blue birds, 1/2"-hexies, and embroidery come together to make this incredibly cheerful quilt! This quilt will make you smile as you stitch :-).
Don't forget to order paper hexagons! This quilt has a total of 1513 hexes, but since the papers are reusable you don't have to have that many on hand. Order hexes made by Paper Pieces in sets of 125 hexes or 500 hexes; or you can order hexes from Busyfingers in sets of 100 hexes.
If you have never worked with paper pieced hexagons before, you might find these videos interesting. Click here to go to watch the fundamentals of English paper piecing, and click here for information on how to use the Sewline Glue Pen.
