a new hexie pillow

Hello, happy Tuesday to you all!

Last night I finished a new hexie pillow. I love it so very much. ♥♥♥

Oh, for the record, I didn't just whip it up in one or two nights. I've been taking my time, enjoying all the little stitches, and working on this pillow very slowly over the last few weeks while watching TV after the kids go to bed. Yes, night time is definitely my epp time :)

I must admit, every time I epp I'm sort of obsessed with staring at the wrong side of my project. To me the wrong side shows a lot better how much hard work and stitching went into joining all the little pieces.

I machine quilted both the pillow top as well as the backing using tiny cross hatch pattern. (I also attached fusible fleece to both parts)

I went with button closure instead of my usual zipper for the backing, and I'm loving the results.

 I like how it adds just another extra touch of "pretty" to the pillow. Plus, I had these perfect gray and green polka dotty buttons begging to be used :)

Finished size of the pillow is approximately 21" x 20".

Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana
