Hexagons are one of my favourite blocks. They’re quick and easy, they can be made with strips of fabric, using a different number of strips, or just a beautiful print fabric.
Jelly rolls are perfect for this type of hexagon block.
How to make hexagon quilts with strips
Did you like the blocks?
Check out my hexagons quilt Hexagonal dream. The quilt is 60” x 59 ½”.
The quilt is jelly roll and fat quarter friendly and suitable for confident beginners.
- Download the quilt from my Etsy shop as a digital pattern.
A 60 degree ruler is recommended but if you don’t have one you can always use a square ruler with 60 degree markings or the template that comes with the pattern.

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.
Buy individual chapters of my book
Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.
As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
