Little Pink Hexden Project

In my travels around town this last week I stopped by a couple of local shops and picked up some lovely pink fat quarters to help add that scrappy feeling to my pink hexden project.  I've been feeling like it's needing a little more variety.

I love that there’s so many great pinks out there right now!

I’ve been making good progress on my little hexdens – I have 36 flowers made and they’re ready to be appliqued onto a background square.

So I’ve been on the hunt for a good background print to applique each hexden flower to.  This week I found this print and I think it’s perfect!  Like, perfect to the point where I'm excited to start working on it NOW.  We're talking Christmas-morning excitement here.  Weird, right?

The print is from the new Modern Background- Paper line by Zen Chic for Moda.  There are some really great low volume prints in that collection.  Click on the link and scroll through the page and you’ll see what I mean.

In addition to working on this fun paper piecing project, I’ve also been putting the finishing touches on two new quilt patterns!  Stay tuned for sneak peeks of those :)
