Hexagon Park

MBS pic



Hi, I'm Lynne, from Lily's Quilts.  I'm a UK quilter and leapt at the chance to design a quilt using the eagerly awaited new line from UK fabric designer, Aneela Hoey, Sherbet Pips.  Want to make this quilt right now?  Head on over to my blog this week for a chance to win a Sherbet Pips layer cake!


For the quilt top:
One Sherbet Pips layer cake
Two and a half yards of Moda Bella Solids white

DSC_0359

For the binding and backing:
1/2 yard of fabric for the binding
5 yards of fabric for the backing


Choose 30 layer cake squares for the hexagons and save the remaining squares for the small square border.  To make each hexagon, take one layer cake square, fold and iron it in half horizontally and cut a half inch strip off along the folded line, yielding two rectangles 4 1/2" by 10".  For clarity, the strip you are cutting off is an inch wide when unfolded.

DSC_0373

Keeping those two rectangles of fabric together as they are, position them on your cutting board so that first the bottom right and then the bottom left corner line up with the 60 degree line marked on the cutting board and cut off triangles on each side as shown in this picture:

DSC_0374

You will end up with two half hexagons and four small triangles looking like this.  Keep the triangles; you will use some of them in the quilt.

DSC_0375

For the sashing between the hexagons, cut 12 WOF (width of fabric) strips 2" wide.  Cut these strips into 7 1/4" lengths.  Also cut 8 WOF strips 1 1/4" wide and cut these into 5 1/4" lengths.  Sew one of the shorter, narrower strips onto the top and bottom of each of the half hexagons, press the seams away from the white strips and trim following the lines of the half hexagon edges.

DSC_0378

Separate all your half hexagons into two piles - the tops and the bottoms. Add 7 1/4" sashing strips to the sides of each of the tops, lining up the sashing with the top of the block so that there is some overhang at the bottom.

DSC_0379

Press seams away from the white sashing and trim, following the lines of the half hexagons sides.

DSC_0380

Arrange the hexagons into a pleasing layout (refer to the picture of the whole quilt to help if needed).  Take the pile of little triangles cut off when you cut the hexagons and choose some pairs of these to add down the sides of the quilt layout.  Take each of the bottom half hexagons on the left hand and right hand side of the layout and add a 7 1/4" sashing strip along the side that will be attached to a small triangle.
DSC_0381

Sew the small triangles to the half hexagon next to them, lining them up with the white sashing:

DSC_0382

Sew each row together, pressing seams away from the white sashing.  My top row looked like this:

row 1 of 12!

Sew all 12 rows together, pressing seams open and trimming along the edges of the small triangles, removing the little points of sashing.

Sashing and small square border:
Cut 12 WOF strips 2 1/2" wide from the white fabric and add a white border to the quilt top.

Cut 5 WOF strips 2 5/8" wide and cut into 5" lengths.  Cut (36) 5" squares from the remaining layer cake. Add the 5" square border alternating 5" squares with the white 5" sashing strips.  Add one more 2 1/2" white border.  You now have your completed quilt top.

Hexagon Park

Cut the backing fabric in half lengthwise, remove selvages and sew the two pieces together along the long sides to create the quilt backing.  Sandwich, quilt, bind, wash, dry and enjoy.


One sashed hexagon quilt 80" by 70".  Mine will be used for snuggling under on the sofa.  I made it for me but I suspect my twin daughters may make it their own before too long.  If you make this quilt, I'd love you to let me know via my blog, Lily's Quilts.

Thank you!

Lynne Goldsworthy

Fabulously perfect Lynne! For some reason I didn't remember that the hexagons were pieced across the middle, but that's a great construction method for this quilt! And I agree...this quilt would look fabulous in any line, but it really shows off the sherbet pips prints well.

Audrey said...

I LOVE this pattern! I knew that once I finally had a chance to get my very own Pips layer cake I would have a hard time cutting it up and want to hoard it because all the fabrics are so special. With this pattern, though, I will be able to look at each delightful print, all at the same time. I will make this. The design is INGENIOUS!

Coisas da Laura said...

Terrific!!! Congratulations!
Hugs from Brasil!

Danielle said...

I love the hexies and the pips!

Love the hexagons. Wish I hadn't cut up my central park layer cake. But wait, I think I see a Kaffe hexagon park quilt in my future!

Shannon said...

Thanks for sharing your recipe for this super fun quilt!

Vickie said...

Clever! I love how you decided to feature this yummy layer cake of sherbet pip loveliness! Thanks for a great tut! Hugs!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

It's amazing and beautiful!

Tina @ Squirrel Acorns said...

Kari said...

What a great design with the hexagons! I'm going to be making this one soon.

Four Fine Fillies said...

What a fabulous creation. Have to ask though - why do all quilters decorate their trees with their creations and not use them for the more traditional purpose of wall decoration or bed covers?

Jenny said...

wow, this fabric + this pattern is just perfect!

Sandra in WA said...

BEautiful. I love the color combo of this collection. Will be looking for it in the shops!

Erica said...

This is so cute!

Tiffany said...

Any idea what this would look like with light grey sashing? Im trying to avoid having so many quilts with white sashing. I love this pattern and just got a charm pack of sherbet pips and def. want to make a bigger project with it because its so cute.

goldy said...

Is ther a reason why you cut off an inch strip as the first step? What would happen if you simply cut it in half? Or does that change the look?
I may have answered my own question!
But if you could that it would be appreciated!
Thanks

Lynne (Lily's Quilts) said...

Hi Goldy, the reason I cut off an inch is that, if you don't the hexagons would be taller and so would not be equilateral - i.e. all sides being the same length and, for me, would not look so pretty. However, if you did leave that inch on, the quilt would work just as well, the hexagons would still all meet and the quilt would be longer so you'd need one or two more squares in the pieced border and slightly more sashing too. If you do it that way, I'd love to see it!

Anonymous said...

Hi I left the comment about why cut an inch off
hmmm, maybe I will do a few and see what they look like, before I commit to an entire quilt!
by the way, I left another post recently, we share the same last name! :)

Laura said...

Oh I LOVE this- and I love your blog! Thanks so much for sharing this!

How do you think it would work to try to make it without the square border? I think the big hexagons would look awesome! I have a Max and Whiskers layer cake that I've been looking to make something for my son and I think this is it!

Melanie said...

What a great, original quilt design. I love quilt patterns that are trendy and appeal to younger quilters. Thanks!

CREATIVE MIND said...

wonderful..awesome.. no words to appreciate the great effort..

Nicole said...

I just made the pattern for a bridal shower, and it turned out beautifully! I blogged about it at:

http://www.patchworkduck.com/2011/06/happy-hexagons-quilt-complete.html

Thanks for the great pattern!
