Hexagons Made Easy Sampler Quilt
Make the Hexagons Made Easy Sampler Quilt
The 18 blocks featured in the book Hexagons Made Easy is perfect for a Sampler Quilt.
What is a Sampler Quilt? This is a (generally) traditional quilt which features unique, different quilt blocks. Usually, a sampler quilt has no two blocks repeated. In the case of this sampler quilt, I had to repeat two blocks to create a total of 20 for a 4 x 5 block quilt.
All the blocks in the book are based on an 15″ square background. Perfect! Now you can make only 20 blocks and have a BIG quilt. In fact, with the sashing (cut 2-1/2″) the quilt is 70″ x 87″.
The new design wall helped tremendously with arranging such a large project. I choose a grey and black sashing to match the mock-up in the book. The grey is actually an IKEA flat sheet that has a bit of a chintz type sheen to it.
Last seam and the quilt is finito!
Finito? Yes. This quilt will now be part of my traveling “If a Person Werta” lecture and to keep the traveling suitcase lighter, I will not be quilting it. Hooray! It is finished and all the blocks have their own little framed square.
