3 inch Hexagons 60° PDF
Print on fabric for Grandmother’s Flower Garden and other designs instead of using hexagon templates or other traditional methods.
Sew by hand with a running stitch, by machine, or by English Paper Piecing (EPP).
Less prep, more precise, more portable, faster to finish!
These 3-inch Hexagons are bigger than you often see in a traditional Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GFG).
No templates, no basting—unless you want to baste. On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you prefer.
This shape collection PDF includes hexagons with 3-inch sides (6 inches across from point to point). I also include both halves, quarters, and thirds, which are wonderful for 300 Pieced Hexagons.
This flower is a little more than 15 inches in each direction.
Several other sizes are available, as shown in the Index of Shapes.
These hexagons are BIG.
