Finding cute boy prints isn’t the easiest task, so when I saw the new In the Forest fabric line from Riley Blake Designs with its darling woodland creatures, I knew I had to snag some up for a boy quilt!
I wanted a modern quilt design, and thought the prints would look great in a hexagon quilt. Instead of cutting out all those hexagons myself, I used the AccuQuilt GO! Hexagon Die to quickly cut out perfect hexagon shapes. Plus, the hexagon die has little notches to help align the shapes as you’re sewing them together. Brilliant, right?!?
If you’ve never sewn hexagons or Y-seams, you need to head over to the AccuQuilt blog where I just shared a tutorial on how to sew this easy quilt top. The large hexagon shapes are the perfect choice for a first-time Y-seam project and you’ll love adding Y-seams to your repertoire.
Dreamy Minky in navy was the perfect backing choice and I quilted it in a modern line pantograph (called City Windows).
