Hexie Friday Finish with FMQ

I went to a Christmas banquet with DH.  It was very nice, however, they have a long plant auction as part of it.  The plants are great and I'm happy for them to be getting some new plants, but I have no interest other than admiring the plants. This year I came prepared and brought along my hexie flowers kit.  I completely finished the one I was working on in the two hours it took for that part of the program.
 The one on the left is the new one and you can see I started the third of this trio, too.

My other finish is this baby quilt I'm giving to the foster child whose name was on the tag I picked up at church.  Pedro is 2 years old.  I hope he'll like it.  Has cute animal flannel on back. It started out as a Pat Sloan pattern of which I only did the center.

I used freezer paper copies of the white star in the middle for the blue blocks, fmqued squiggly diagonal lines through the small squares and did loops and stars in the border. Learned I like warm and natural batting best - especially over this medium loft I've had in the quilt room for a long time.  Now I know why.  Wish I could count batting as part of de-stashing.

Show us your hexies.  Linky below.  I'm also linking to Amanda's Finish it Up Friday and Leah's Free Motion Quilting Project.

We get to call you "Awesome Angie" this week! I'm lovin' the hexies Angie and congratulations on the baby blanket finish. I think it's perfect for a little boy. What a neat idea to ditto those stars for quilting. And the squiggly line is also great for a boy. You go girl! Hugs, Karen

Hi Angie - your flowers are great. I just love the sunny yellow centres! What size of hexagon are you working with?

Pedro's quilt is so cute! There's nothing better than a flannel backed quit for child. I'm sure he is going to love it!
Great hexies Angie. What's not to love about your quilt. I'm sure Pedro will enjoy cuddling up with it.
