After unsuccessfully trying to figure out a hexagon quilt design myself, I was thrilled to see Julie's Hexagon Quilt Along pop up over at Old Red Barn Quilt Company.
The instructions seemed straight forward enough. Sew sets of two strips of jelly rolls. She gave instructions for cutting the triangles using three types of rulers. I went with the mack daddy cool looking 60º Double-Strip Equilateral Triangle Ruler. This being the first time making hexagons I figured I could use all the help I could get.
I don't know if it was the fancy dancy ruler, but these were pretty easy to figure out. They look pretty cool, don't you think?
Above is the suggested layout of Block 1.
This is the layout that Julie used to make her original hexagon quilt. I really think this layout is pretty cool too. I went back and forth until finally deciding which one to use.
I had enough triangles to make ten blocks. Here are the two halves....waiting for further instructions.
One more picture...just because ;-)
Keeping up with the hexagon quilt along is my goal #1 of Jacquie's Spring to Finish Challenge 2010.
Have an amazing day!!!
