Made for the miniature quilt swap. Just kind of created it as I went along. Almost didn’t get sent to my swap mate ’cause it turned out so cute I wanted to keep it!!! Each hexagon petal is a little bet less than an inch but it was fun to make!!!. Hand quilted and tied.

When I found out that a cousin was having a baby, I started making this quilt using half 1″ hexagon shapes that I had printed using Inklingo. I love tessellating designs and the half hexagon really worked for that. I just squeaked in under the wire, finishing it the day before the baby was born!

|Dreaming of Summer

It took me three years to sew this quilt. It´s handpieced and handquilted. The flowers are all made from different fabrics. There are cirka 4-5000 small hexagons in the quilt. I never got the energy to count them :)

An English quilting friend sent me a sample swatch book of Liberty of London fabrics and I used them to make EPP units for this unusual setting which I saw in a quilting magazine. The gold fabric was purchased in a shop in Florida several years ago, and the quilting was done by hand and by machine.

Pieced all by hand back in the early 1970’s by my mother. She gave this quilt to me to finish about 10 years ago and I finally machine quilted it and finished it.

By: Charlsey, Texas, USA
Inspired by 1850’s antique quilt where I enlarged the 2-1/2 x 3 picture until I could see how the layout of the quilt. I then printed the hexagons on fabric using Linda Franz’ Inklingo method for the hexagons. The quilt was hand pieced and contains 2,863 hexagons.

|Hexagon Baby Quilt
By: Susan Ponte, Florida, USA
I hand pieced and and quilted this Hexagon quilt while on bed rest with my 6th child. I used the freezer paper method and designed the pattern myself. I used gingham prints for the hexagons and found a floral that blended well with the colors for the sashing. I’ve taught this to many students.

I’m a hexagon junkie and I’m often making quilty things in a non-traditional hexagon style. Depending on how you count them, there are 15 hexagons in this 15″ square quilt celebrating 15 years of the Quiltart list.

This quilt was inspired by M. C. Escher’s work. It is made of triangles, diamonds, and hexagons and the red is used to highlight a single item of each shape.

I made a hexy mug rug for a tutorial for the blog, and when my friend Bonnie of Wonderfully Awkward went bananas over it, I made and hand quilted the aqua and red mini-quilt for her.

This is my first work with hexagons. And you know, if you first start, you’ll never end making these beauties. I didn’t know anything about hexagons then, so I made my own pattern. All handsewn, and then again handquilted around each and every hexagon.

|Plant a Pot of Friendship
By: Designs By Fee, Australia
I tutored EPP at our recent “Let’s Get Stitched” weekend here in Tasmania and this was the project I made especially for it. I called it “Plant a Pot of Friendship” as the weekend was all about having fun, making new friends and learning a few new techniques.

I designed these flowers to introduce crafters to the addictive fun of English paper piecing. I love the dimensional quality of the flowers, but they are also fun to applique onto quilts and tote bags. The hexagons and pentagons in this picture are half inch to a side.

I began this EPP project because I wanted a small portable block that I could stitch by hand. Along the way I discovered Inklingo. No paper templates, no basting, a running stitch instead of a whip stitch.

I hand pieced this for my daughter when she was 9. It took me 11 months. It’s still on her bed
