Machine Stitched Hexagons

Hi friends!

Super quick post here sharing a project that I was inspired to make after coming home from Quilt Market – a mini using the awesome free mini charm pack that Carolyn Friedlander was handing out at her booth.

Modern Handcraft // Machine stitched hexagons

A couple of you on Instagram asked how to make something like this so I wanted to share the link to the tutorial I made a while back so you could make one as well!

I used 2.5″ squares of fabric with the above template size for making my hexagons.

If you have any questions along the way email me or add a comment onto this post and I would be more than happy to help you out.

Share your work over in the Modern Handcraft Flickr group and over on Instagram using #modernhexies.

Thanks for stopping by friends!

    This is so great! I think this might be the only way I could do hexies -it seems a lot faster. So maybe a name that reflects that?! Hand piecing all the hexies together is what often deters me. Love this mini -looks so crisp and sharp!

    Oooh, amazing. You could call them ‘Flexigons’ – flexible hexagons.

    Great Idea!!! I think your hexie quilt is amazing. it’s like ticker tack quilting but way more nice and neat.

    This is so pretty! I was looking for something to hang onto the bedroom wall, since it’s one big white space. This would look totally awesome! My BF agrees, since he’s also into abstract things :) Thanks for sharing! I looked at your other stuff as well, and it got me to subscribe to your blog. You make great things ^^

    If you are still talking suggestions for a name how about “hexagon metrics” as in dot metrics.

    Hi, I have just joined your site and am enjoying the eye candy very much. I thought of calling your lovely work “A palette of Hexies” as one can use so many different colors to make up the design. Thank you for sharing so much inspiration. Greetings from me in South Africa!
