We love Pieced Hexagons and there’s a new size today!
Some quilters requested 1¾ inch diamonds and it sounded like a good idea to me too.
1¾ inch = 1.75 inch
All of the Pieced Hexagons I am showing today can be made with the new 60º Diamonds 1.75 inch.
The Pieced Hexagons are 3.5 inch (2 x 1.75 inch) on each side, and 7 inches across the middle from point to point.
You can make dozens of designs with the shapes in only one Inklingo 60º Diamond “shape collection” and there is a choice of several sizes.
The choices are summarized in 300 Pieced Hexagons under the Shop & Freebies tab on the website. (You are on the blog now.)
How do you know what sizes are available?
All of the 60° shapes are listed in several places on the website, especially under the Shop & Freebies tab:
- Main Hexagon Page
- Main Diamond Page
- Main 60° Shapes Page
- 300 Pieced Hexagons
- Index of Shapes (under Support & Goodies)
Everything is cross-referenced.
Love the lines! Quilt more!
No basting, no measuring. Just print, cut and sew.
60º shapes fit together in a perfect puzzle.
Diamonds, equilateral triangles, half diamonds (triangles) and half triangles all fit together.
Inklingo Diamond and Hexagon shape collections include the partial shapes too, like this “half diamond” (triangle) so they are even more versatile!
Print a variety of shapes on scraps to mix and match.
2 x 0.875 inch = 1.75 inch
60º Diamonds 0.875 inch are available too, and they are exactly half the size of these, so the two sizes work perfectly together.
A CHOICE OF METHODS
You can see how we sew these shapes with a running stitch in the videos on the Main Hexagon Page.
A running stitch is the easiest, most precise, most portable method but if you prefer English Paper Piecing (EPP), there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for that too.
If you look carefully at these 4 red Pieced Hexagons (above), you will see that they are all identical—only the color placement is different! It is no exaggeration to say the design possibilities are endless!
300 Pieced Hexagons includes 336 designs and we could have added more.
FACEBOOK VS THE BLOG—ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED?
I post a photo or two almost every day on Facebook, including flowers blooming in Ontario in mid-November!
You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to see what I post there if you go directly to
However, Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar).
If you are on Facebook, please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. It makes it more fun for everyone.
