MORE PIECED HEXAGONS
This time, we’ve stepped it up a notch and added the shapes from the 1.5-inch Hexagon shape collection.
Isn’t it incredible? Simple shapes, Inklingo, unlimited imagination.
As you can see, the pieced hexagon has 3-inch sides (finished) and is 6 inches across from point to point.
How big is that?
It might be bigger than you think. The pieced hexagons are about the same size as a large soup saucer. (When 6 diamonds are added to the purple star, it will be bigger than the saucer.)
We had a ball designing these, but we’ve barely scratched the surface. When you reverse the light and dark and swap shapes in and out, it gets even more exciting!
HAND PIECING? MACHINE PIECING?
When you buy Inklingo hexagons to print on fabric, you also receive the Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book (PDF download, $20 value). (There are three ways to get it free. We’re so flexible it’s confusing!)
The design book includes everything you need to know about hexagons PLUS instructions for hand piecing, machine piecing, and “hybrid” piecing.
This video includes my best tips for machine piecing inset seams.
Print a variety of shapes on several fabrics and start playing!
The hardest part is deciding what size you want. They are all listed in the Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on inklingo.com and also on these pages:
