Hexie Garden Quilt Pattern & Kit
Becky Goldsmith has done it again! She has put together a new quilt that consists of appliqué on hexagons, done as wedges! So don't let the idea of a hexagon frighten you - she shows you how to put this all together that is easy peasy (oops isn't she one of the Piece O' Cake gals, no wonder :) ). And there are no 'y' seams either! |
You'll find out how to do this in her book, Hexie Garden Quilt, that includes nine templates to make your floral hexagon blocks. Graphic, fast, and full of movement, these easy-to-piece wedge blocks are appealing to both traditional and modern quilters. This is truly a beautiful quilt that is perfect for beginners and non-beginners.
Finished quilt size is 61 1/2" x 69 3/4". Each of the nine Hexagon Blocks are approximately 17" x 19 3/4".
We've put a kit together - that includes everything you'll need to make the top and the binding EXCEPT for the appliqué pieces. Take a look at our larger picture to see what fabrics we'd send you in the kit. The pattern is not included and the backing is optional.
We're also offering you 2 different types of background fabric for these hexagons. One uses a bright Cobalt Blue (this is a grunge) the other is a Navy Suede. You pick.
HOWEVER if you prefer a different border/background color for your hexagon blocks - pick a color from our Grunge collection or from the Suede collection only. Either by telling us under the "special instructions" as you check out online, or send us a quick email - email@example.com. We can make the substitution if you let us know once you order the kit.
We have found out from those that have already begun working on this quilt that you will need a 60 degree triangle ruler. Becky suggests the Clearview 60 degree ruler.
We also suggest for the small hexies you will need to make - 1/2" and 3/4" - using the self-stick Gypsy Quilter Hexagon papers. For this quilt you certainly don't need to make a lot of small hexagons, but if we can save some prep work time - well the self-stick papers are a way to go. You might also consider a new pair of scissors such as Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect 6" scissor with the micro-serrated edge so that it will hold your fabric tightly as you cut out your appliqué pieces. Or how about our Appliqué Stiletto Tool Set to help you hold down edges or poke loose threads in as you hand sew.
