Hexie Flower Quilt Idea

Now that my hexie flower appliques are finished, it's time to make the sashing and get this quilt finished up.

Though the test sashing pieces seen above were made with individual pieces, I've now gone the more efficient route by making a strip set for this quilt plan that I've dreamed up, below.

With the hexie flower blocks at an unfinished size of 4 1/2" square, the sashing needs to be that wide too. That makes the strip set composed of a 6 1/2" x WOF green background strip and 2 (two) 1 1/2" x WOF yellow strips. With the yellow sewn on each side of the green, I've got a strip set.

Cutting 1 1/2" strips will make up the center of the sashing pieces. All I need to add are the two yellow side pieces, at 2" x 8 1/2".

For the border pieces, I'll make another strip set of green background 3 1/2" x WOF with 2 (two) smaller yellow strips at 1" x WOF. 

Finally, I'll add 2 (two) 2" x 4 1/2" yellow side pieces for those little 4 1/2" square blocks. 

To finish off the inner border, I have yet to cut 14 (fourteen) 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" yellow pieces and 4 (four) 4 1/2" x 12 1/2" yellow pieces for the corners. Add on the final teal border at 2 1/4" and the top will be finished.
