One Block Wonder - Hexagons



The first session will be cutting. The students will go home with all of their fabric cut up into hexagons. They will start sewing the hexagons during the first class session. They will sew the triangles together to make half hexagons and pin them together. Homework for the students will be to complete sewing all the hexagons once they go home.

The second class will be on explaining how to segregate the hexagons, and arrange them on the design wall. We will talk about how to design with the hexagons, and how to make the transition from one color to the next in order to form a seamless arrangement. The students will be able to move their own hexagons around the design wall for a pleasing design. We will discuss how to add the half hexagons to fill in the edges. I will teach them how to sew the half hexagons together to form rows and then how to sew the rows together. 


Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Intermediate / Advanced
Requirements:
- One Block Wonders book by Maxine Rosenthal

- 4 1/2 Yards of fabric or six repeats of a fabric, plus a little more to add to the border. It's fun to see the original fabric along with the quilt. If choosing to use the original fabric in the border, I recommend getting a total of 5 1/2 to 6 yards total, depending on whether the design is vertical or horizontal. The repeat needs to be 24 inches. DO NOT PREWASH THE FABRIC!!!!

- V - Shaped mirror for auditioning the fabric (I prefer Marti Michell Folding Magic Mirror)

- 60 degree triangle ruler, 3 to 9 inches (I prefer Marti Michell)

- Flower Head Pins

- 24 in Ruler

- Rotary Cutter with new blade ( I prefer 60 mm for this project, as you will be cutting repeatedly through many layers

- Basic sewing supplies

- Sewing Machine

- Iron and Ironing Mat

- 12x12 Storage Box for materials

- Omnigrid Glow Line Tape
