MORE PIECED HEXAGONS
In my last message, I showed you some of the pieced hexagons which can be made with the 4 shapes in the new 1.5-inch Inklingo Diamond shape collection.
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:
- Main Hexagon Page
- Main Diamond Page
- Smart Shopper’s Idea Book (especially for Candied Hexagons)

Well, Tammy, you can’t shake and sew at the same time. You have a way of getting me to shake with laughter. Love it! Hugs, Linda & Monkey
Welcome, Diane! This is a good place to start.
And the mystery quilt was designed with new Inklingo quilters in mind too. There will be a new clue tomorrow.
If you have questions, be sure to ask, okay? Hugs, Linda & Monkey
Sent by Bonnie Hunter! excuse me while I look around! 🙂
I can’t wait for my CD3 to arrive. This is so inspirational! Thank you.
Forgot to mention that Bonnie hunter send me here otherwise I would have never known about this.
This is very inspiring. I have always been a little scared to do hexagons but with this I think my fears have become a lot less. The variations you have are amazing. The monkey is real cute and so is the cup and saucer.
All I can say is “Wow”, I need to have these printed in a book so I can go over them again and again! They look almost like some of the patterns that are in the “Toes in the Sand” quilt…and I love it!!! By the way, Monkey looks like he’s had his cheek pinched a few times in the photo, he is just so darn cute! I see another project in my future!
Well, no need for a drink on this Saturday nite!
You have given me the shakes thinking of these combinations with my other candies.
I have to go lay down now.
I just LOVE Hexagons, and you make it so easy with Inklingo! Thank you!

You are tempting me to jump on the Candied Hexagons bandwagon with all these layouts! What fun could be had with all these fun layouts! I have a feeling trying to resist this is going to be futile!
The mind boggles!!
I love this. I have CD 3 but what I didn’t have was all these great designs you’re showing on this page. How inspiring. I’m trying to stay focused but this is just like candy!!
