Just Stitch The Finished Hexies Together for a Completed Project!

Some quilters like making hexies and some don’t. They’re fiddly and require precision. Plus, once they’re made you need to applique them down to a background or carefully stitch them together into a quilt top.

Quilt as You Go Hexies

These quilt-as-you-go hexies still require precision, but once they’re done they already have batting and backing and are ready to go. Just stitch them together into a completed project.

The quilter at Silly Goose Quilts made a table mat with hers. You could make a mug rug, placemats or even a lap quilt. There are so many things you can do with these.

Quilt as You Go Hexies

Each individual hexagon is essentially a mini quilt, with binding brought around from the back. You can make them as small or large as you like.

The tutorial, by Silly Goose Quilts, includes a template. Print it full size onto a standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper for a finished hexie of about 3 1/2″ (you know the printed version is correct when there’s a 1″ space between the inner and outer hexies).
