Quick and easy hexagon block with 60 degree ruler video tutorial

Video tutorial: hexagon block made with a 60 degree ruler - free template and download

I’ve discovered a new type of block that is made with a 60 degree ruler or a template. You actually make 2 different blocks at once with this technique that can be laid out as 2 separate hexagon blocks or as one single joined block like in this case.

If you don’t have a 60 degree ruler you can download the pattern:

Materials

Cut 3 strips of fabric:

  •  37  X 3 1/4  inches in red
  •  37 X 2 3/4 inches in blue
  •  37 X 1 inches in charcoal

Cut 3 more strips fabric:

  •  21  X 3 1/4  inches in red
  •  21 X 2 3/4 inches in blue
  •  21 X 1 inches in charcoal

These 2 strips will make 6 triangles of each type, with the fabric strips inverted.

Finished size

As 2 interlaced blocks: 11 inches x 18 1/2 inches (10 triangles in total, 5 of each type).

As 2 individual blocks: 11 inch square (6 triangles in total, 6 of each type).
