Today there is a new video.
Click to watch “Inklingo Pieced Hexagons from Diamonds.”
Would you like to start with only one Diamond Shape Collection?
This new video shows about 40 Pieced Hexagons that use only 4 shapes.
You can have fun making enough Pieced Hexagons for one of the Settings for Pieced Hexagons we shared earlier this year. (That’s one of my favorite pages.)
You can be very creative with only 4 shapes.
These shapes are available in several sizes. The triangles are half and quarter diamonds.
All of the sizes are listed in the Index of Shapes (under the Support tab), but we’ll list them here too.
- 0.5 inch (download)
(The half triangle is so small, we just print the whole triangle and trim.)
- 0.75 inch (Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 CD)
- 0.75 inch (download)
- 1.0 inch (download)
- 1.5 inch (Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 CD)
- 1.5 inch (download)
- 2.25 inch (Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 CD)
- 3.0 inch (download)
All of these collections have everything you need to make all of the designs in the video.
There is also a small shape collection with the 2.0 inch 60° Diamond, but you need a second shape collection to get the related 2 inch 60° Triangles.
ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE PIECED HEXAGONS IN THE VIDEO
There are illustrations of Pieced Hexagons made with Diamonds in an earlier blog message.
I started designing a new PDF with illustrations of some of these Pieced Hexagons because they look so pretty with the Timeless Treasures swatches.
It was a nice plan, but I had a massage this afternoon to ease my neck after too many hours at the computer. When I got home I was so relaxed that I found it hard to concentrate on the details. I made a mistake uploading the video to YouTube too, or this would have been posted hours ago.
Don’t worry. It should be possible to post a cute new PDF before next Wednesday’s Tute, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, there are several articles about Pieced Hexagons in the blog archives and there are other Inklingo videos on YouTube about designing and sewing hexagons:
- Sewing Grandmother’s Flower Garden by Hand (the movie)
- Sewing Hexagons by Machine (the movie)
