  3. Teresa, your tutorials are fascinating and I love this block. I’ve always been afraid to try it till now. Me and my jelly rolls thank you. Now if I can figure out how to square them up for a quilt. Any tips?

  4. Midge, you have 2 options. You can leave the edges as they are, with hexagon points (check out the photos of my hexagonal dream pattern for sale), or add half a hexagon made with triangles and place them in the areas that need feeling, and then square it, just cut across from hexagon to hexagon point if you know what I mean.


  5. Wowww!!! This tutorial is set out beautifully! Thank you for sharing, Teresa:) My husband always wanted a 3D quilt – well Father’s Day is a month away;)
    Happy quilting. Xx


  6. You can make a quilt of hexagons, or hexagons and triangles, there’re different ways to use in a quilt.


  7. mir gefallen diese blöcke super – der 3d effekt ist spitze und wenn man überlegt das es aus dreiecken besteht – einfach super

  8. I am looking for a way to download the paper 60 degree template used in this pattern and having difficulty. Has anyone been able to successfully download it? How did you do it?


  9. I love this hexie block but my Mom who is 95 and doesn’t use the computer could make this with a paper pattern.. I try to keep her mind and fingers active so is there any place I can get a hard copy. I love the tutorial by the way!

  10. Hi Teresa 🙂

    I’m a very unorthodox quilter. I always press my seams flat. And I press my pieces with steam.


  11. Love this. However, I’d really appreciate your showing us how to add the background “corners”. Or, could you direct me to where I might find this? Thanks!


  12. Do you mean how to square it? I’d add extra triangles and the just square it the quilt, just cut across. Or you can finish I just like that.
