I am excited to release my Floating Hexagons pattern. I originally designed Floating Hexagons in 2017 and worked with amazing testers at the end of the year. It has been a long time coming, and I'm so pleased to be sharing it with you today. I was inspired to work with solids, and I wanted to work with a block-based design with a twist, playing with placement of my hexagons to create interesting negative space. Floating Hexagons is a beginner friendly block-based design in three sizes.
Last month I shared my Petting Zoo version of Floating Hexagons. This variation features different fabrics in each of the hexagons.
As a bonus, you can choose to make five blocks from the baby or lap size quilt to make a table runner, as I did for Modern by the Yard for my Fall Fleurish runner.
A great big thank you to my testers, Anja, Laura, and Mary. (See their versions here.) Since I chose to change the construction method of my hexagons after my testers created their quilts, I worked with Sarah Ruiz for technical editing. She was fabulous to work with. I appreciate her keen eye and I look forward to working with her again.
Floating Hexagons quilt pattern contains three sizes:
- Baby: 30 1/2" x 42 1/2"
- Lap: 45 1/2" x 63 1/2"
- Throw: 60 1/2" x 84 1/2"
My pattern includes:
- fabric requirements and cutting instructions in clear charts
- detailed precision piecing instructions, tested and professionally edited
- clear diagrams
- three block sizes
- a coloring sheet for planning your design
- quilting ideas
- instructions for creating binding
- photos of testers' quilts for inspiration
