1 inch Hexagons 60°
Print on fabric for Grandmother’s Flower Garden and other designs instead of using 1 inch hexagon templates or other traditional methods.
Sew by hand with a running stitch (recommended) or English Paper Piecing.
Less prep, more precise, more portable, faster to finish!
1 inch Hexagons might be the most popular size for Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GFG). When you sew by hand with a running stitch, each seam is just two or three loads of the needle.
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 1 inch sides (2 inches across from point to point). I also include both halves, quarters, and thirds for even more design options.
Several other sizes are available, as shown in the Index of Shapes.
Features of the 1 inch Hexagons Shape Collection (PDF)
- shapes to print on fabric
- diagrams showing how much fabric you need
- shapes without seam allowances to print on freezer paper (just in case you want templates)
& More Good Things about Inklingo Hexagons
- use a rotary cutter or scissors
- partial hexagons increase your design options and allow you to finish with a straight edge
- optional scissors layouts to save fabric
- ideal for fussy cutting and scrap quilts
- complimentary Hexagon Quilt Design Book (PDF, 70 pages) with worksheets and everything you need to know to design and sew a hexagon quilt (You might want to get it first, as described under the tab above.)
This size is ideal for 300 Pieced Hexagon designs, especially when you add diamond and hexagon shape collections in compatible sizes.
Hexagons are not just for quilters who enjoy English Paper Piecing (EPP) anymore! It is much easier to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo (TWO methods of fussy cutting) and sew with a running stitch.
Love the lines, Quilt more!

These are Gina Elias’s flowers. She wrote, “I am using 1″ Inklingo hexagons. These are so addicting! I make the flowers at ball games, on the go, you name it. Then I put a few rows together during down time at home. I can’t believe how quick hand piecing can be! I kind of have ADD when it comes to sticking with quilting projects, but I’ve been working on this one for a month and am still going strong. Fun, fun, fun!”
Thank you for inspiring us, Gina!
Cathi in Toronto made Cameron’s Windmills with this Shape Collection. Cathi’s blog, Quilt Obsession, is an inspiration to all of us. Cathi also wrote the free pattern for Emma’s Butterfly Stars, which she made for Cameron’s big sister.
Isn’t this a stunning quilt? Elisabeth added a pretty pink diamond path around the hexagon flowers. (1 inch 60° Diamond plus Hexagons). This is her first Inklingo quilt.
