Mini Ninnie Hexie Star

I finished a little piece this weekend! The blocks are from this Hexed Stars pattern. I pulled the Philip Jacobs Delphinium print for the border first, thinking it looked a little Fall-like, then found the batiks for the stars and background. It went together so quickly!

The triangles that make up the hexies are 1.5" tall, and the overall piece is about 12" wide.

I quilted it with this gorgeous metallic thread from Superior. (40 wt. #025 Variegated Gold) I only broke the thread once, which I think is good for a metallic. I used a Superior topstitch needle #90/14. Love their needles and thread!

This little piece will be auctioned off at the Ninigret Quilt show on October 16. Proceeds of the silent auction will be donated to the W.A.R.M. Shelter and the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center.

I was planning to make another one for myself to keep, but it will have to wait. You know how I was on a roll? Well, I'm paying for all that sewing now. I have tendonitis in my left hand and can't sew for 7-10 days while I recover. : [

I'm linking up with Sew Darn Crafty for Autumn Theme Week!
