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 my Etsy shop as a digital pattern.

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:

If you plan to cut at 60 degrees a lot you may consider investing in a 60 degree ruler.

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).
