Another hexagon quilt!
Hexagons are one of my favourite blocks.
This time I’m making a half hexagon quilt using a very large hexagon.
The quilt can be assembled in a couple of days and it’s quick and easy to make.
I used the beautiful new Zen Garden collection by Michael Miller:
How to make hexagon quilts with fabric stripes
A 60 degree ruler is recommended but if you don’t have one you can always use a square ruler with 60 degree markings.
Each strip, 4 1/2″ x width of fabric, shields 5 half hexagons measuring 10″ at their base.
- Download a mega hexagon colouring page (.pdf) and play around with colour and placement to come up with your own layout.
My book Turnabout Patchwork“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
