Happy Hexies - H2H Charity Quilt Challenge

Last week when I finished Happy Hippos for the H2H Charity Quilt Challenge
I mentioned this quilt.
Happy Hexies is a FINISH!!
On time to donate, too!


These hexie blocks have been laying around for almost a year.
I made 2 of them and the others came from some of the ladies in my Modern Block Party Group.


My month was towards the end of the group's year and I didn't receive all of the blocks for a full quilt, so I made this throw to donate to Happy Chemo.  
Happy Chemo is an organization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients.

I had a lot of help with the quilt, including the photography....


The binding is pieced from all the leftover fabrics.

I used this quilt to practice some of the pre-loaded quilt patterns on the Handi Quilter.
I can't believe how fun it is.  I have a lot to learn, but it's starting to be a little easier.


Here is a picture of the back to show a little more of the quilting.


Happy Hexies is a 48" x 60" throw and is labeled and ready to ship.


Hope they like it.
