Hexagon 0.875 inch 60°
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 (recommended) or English Paper Piecing.
0.875 = 7/8 inch
(more than 3/4 and less than 1 inch)
Hexagon 0.875 inch is a nice size for hand piecing a traditional Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GFG). When you print on fabric and sew by hand with a running stitch, each seam is just one or two loads of the needle. I would find this size too small for machine piecing.
When you print on fabric, there are no templates or 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 0.875 inch sides (1.75 inch across from point to point). I also include both halves, quarters and thirds.
This flower is approximately 4.5 inches in each direction.
These hexagons are very useful for Pieced Hexagons, especially with 1.75 inch hexagon and diamond shape collections.
Several other sizes are available, as shown in the Index of Shapes.
