These versatile hexagon blocks are made from pieces that can be spun into many configurations. Make a project from your favorite option or use several together for a sampler effect.
Both blocks are made from strips sewn into tubes and then cut apart into segments. Play with arranging the segments to find your favorite hexagon variation.
Teresa DownUnder shows how the blocks are made in the following video. They’re simple to make and it’s fun to see all the different variations that can be achieved.

The first method requires two strips that are 3 3/8″ x 15″ for one block.
Two strips that are 2 1/2″ x 37″ will make two blocks using the second method. You’ll need a 60 degree ruler (like this one) or the paper pattern (found here) for this block version.
Both methods produce blocks that are 8 3/4″ x 9 1/2″.
Teresa has created a lovely sampler quilt using smaller versions of these blocks (plus a few more). It’s fat quarter and jelly roll friendly and is made without Y-seams. The quilt is 60” x 59 ½” once completed.
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!
