Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Beginner with good sewing skills. You will learn how to join hex shapes in a couple of different ways, and how to hand applique.

Pattern Description:

This quilt was originally designed to be used as a throw for snuggling and napping, but the size would work well for a toddler bed, large play mat, or a fun beach or picnic blanket as well. The hex shapes are six inches wide (finished), so the piecing is quick.
In addition to the larger pieced hex shapes, I also appliqued a few smaller hexagons, but these are completely optional. I do think the smaller shapes added some interesting contrast, and sometimes it's fun to mix up machine piecing with a bit of hand applique.
The back of the quilt is also pieced, which is a great way to use up remnants of material used for the quilt top. However, it would be fine to make a solid back for this quilt as well. Finally, the binding is made up of scraps from the quilt rather than solid strips, and the pattern explains how to accomplish this.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximate finished size is 45 by 60 inches


  • Quilt as shown takes about 7 1/2 yards of fabric. Detail is provided in the pattern
  • The quilt as shown used 12 different prints, but it could be made with as few as two
