Hexies are everywhere – in every size! They are so popular that there was a display of these quilts featuring the Hexagon Trim Tool at the Open House.
Item #CGRJAW4 Retail $24.95
I love this quilt! The turtle shells are made by using the log cabin style markings on the Hexie Trim Tool to create a spiral effect. The feet and head are turned so they are three dimensional! No mother/grandmother is going to be able to resist this one! Display this one with all of your brights!
Many of these hexies are on steroids – which means they can be pieced quickly!
This quilt features half hexies that are sewn together base to base instead of across the center to create a totally different look. Since they are half hexies, there are no inset seams. The half-hexies are sewn in rows so adjusting the size is simple. There are no borders so the outside edge is a series of angles. And, yes, the pattern explains how to bind that as well.

Cut the Cake Hexie
The hexies in this quilt are cut from 10″ squares – and then set with 60 degree triangles (CGRT60). The star effect is stunning.
Terri of Whimsicals pieces hexies with units cut with the Creative Grids 15 degree ruler (CGREU1) – and then sets them together with 60 degree angles (CGRT60). It reminds me of beach umbrellas!

But hexies aren’t reserved for quilts! Check out this tote bag that is done in two different sizes.
Our grandmothers would have loved this!
