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.
