We’re celebrating the 7 year anniversary of the first Inklingo shape collection with Pieced Hexagons and they are gorgeous! Click to play the video.
In addition to the video, for the next few Wednesdays I will add mini-tutes (tutorials) on the blog for designing and sewing Pieced Hexagons.
You can make this a great portable project for the summer or choose a size to sew by machine.
Timeless Treasures gave me permission to use swatches of their gorgeous fabrics in the illustrations.
We think they look fabulous in the video!
I limited myself to only 8 shapes in 2 sizes and created 300 Pieced Hexagons in 1 video.
3 INCH HEXAGONS
3 inch Pieced Hexagons are 6 inches across from point to point.
If you have Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 you can make all 300 designs in this size. Isn’t that amazing?
MANY OTHER SIZES
We’ll show you how to make them with Inklingo in smaller and larger sizes too.
Book and CD for all 300 designs
If you don’t have Windows or if you are worried about CDs becoming obsolete some day (and all CDs will eventually, just like floppy disks and VHS tapes), the shapes are also downloadable.
3 inch Pieced Hexagons to Download (instead of Inklingo # 3)
The only size that was missing was the little diamonds, so we added them today.
As usual, the new downloadable 60° Diamonds 0.75 inch are at a very special intro price—but for a few days only!
CAN’T WAIT FOR WEDNESDAY?
These are so much fun to design and sew!
While you are waiting for the first Wednesday Pieced Hexagon Tute, you might want to review a few articles about Pieced Hexagons we added early this year:
There are even more in the archives. (The blog is searchable too.)
There is some info about Pieced Hexagons in the Inklingo Smart Shopper’s Idea Book (free PDF to download). Look for Candied Hexagons and VariaHex.
