Pieced Hexagon

There are a number of pieced hexagons that intrigue me. But one in particular I was determined to make.


This one is made up of half diamonds, triangles and half triangles from the Inklingo .75″ 60-degree diamond collection. The finished pieced hexagon is the same size as a 1.5″ hexagon. I used batiks and a finely woven white on white to make this as I knew it was going to be a bit tricky working with such a small size and having all those points meeting in the middle.


The back after the seams were graded and the little block pressed.


I know I’m going to make more pieced hexagons, although different ones, and want to use the same fabrics for a number of them. So I  printed diamonds, half diamonds, triangles and half triangles from both the .75″ and 1.5″ 60-degree diamond collections on those fabrics. And this little box is getting full.




Baxter was helping Mr. Q.O. do his cryptic crossword. And Mr. Q.O. captioned this one, “The answer to 7 Down is ‘Catnip’.”

  1. WOW I would need a super strong magnifying glass to even attempt those tiny pieces LOL.
    I can’t wait to see more. You amaze me.


  2. Cathi, There will be a hexie quilt in my future!!
    And today I laughed out loud when I read the Baxter quip with the crossword puzzle. He is gorgeous!


  3. Oh, my, Cath! You are obsessed! That little hexie is great! And I love Baxter’s pose today. He looks like he is so proud of himself finding his word. Cute! The caption is perfect.


  4. Absolutely amazing. I often wonder “how small will she go” everytime I see one of your tiny blocks and you just keep making them smaller and smaller. I agree with the other comment…I would need strong magnifying glasses to do what you do. Just incredible and your fabric choices are lovely. Love the Baxter toon!

  6. Love the pieced hexi. Too gorgeous.
    I think Mr QO nailed it for the caption. Especially with the pointed look Baxter is giving, which seems to add “do you get my point?!” 🙂
