About the quilt

Hexagonal Dream is a hexagon sampler quilt.The quilt is put together without Y seams.

This quilt uses traditional piecing.

Quilt size: 60” x 59 ½”.

Number of blocks: 48 hexagon blocks with 11 different block types and 8 half hexagon blocks.

Finished hexagon size: 7 ¼” x 8 ½”.

The quilt is jelly roll and fat quarter friendly.

Skill level: I’ve rated this quilt as confident beginner / intermediate.

A 60 degree ruler is recommended but if you don’t have one you can always use a square ruler with 60 degree markings or the template that comes with the pattern.

In the 11 page pattern I have included lots of diagrams and written instructions as well as links to 2 of my video tutorials that demonstrate how to make an hexagon.

A million thanks to the testers who helped make this pattern great.

I hope you like my quilt and enjoy making it.

My Hexagonal Dream pattern is available to purchase on Craftsy and also on my Etsy shop as a digital pattern.
