I must have the attention span of a gnat. Instead of finishing the blue wonky blocks that I recently posted about, I went blog hopping and found something else I had to try. I stopped by Lily’s Quilts. She is having a Hex A Long and I was interested in learning about it. On her blog she has several links to hexagon tutorials. So, naturally, I had to go visit. I found a wonderful tutorial on Freshly Pieced that I had to try it. This is the first block I made.
And this is the second one. Each block is completely quilted and bound.
A picture on Lily’s Quilts shows sewing the hexagons together like you would for Grandmother’s Flower Garden. That would be nice for a table topper or place mat or hot pad.
I think I’ll use mine as small mug rugs.
You can get a template on the Freshly Pieced blog. I didn’t do that, thinking I already had the right size. I’m not sure about that as after I made my blocks, I measured my template. If you measure one side it is 1.5 inches and measures 3 inches at the widest point. They were sure fun to make and a great way to use up my scraps.
