They Can Also be Used in Quilting Projects!

Folded fabric hexagons make lovely ornaments for the tree. Choose fabrics in colors you love and simply add hanging cords.

They’re also great for decorating wrapped gifts. Or, sew them into quilting projects for a bit of 3D wow.

Lisa from A Spoonful of Sugar started with a 6″ hexagon, which produced an ornament that’s 2″ from tip to tip (hers are the beautiful white ornaments). You can make any size you want by adjusting the size of the starting hexie.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
