Even More Hexagons to Print on Fabric

I found them!

I started an Inklingo shape collection for 5/8 inch hexagons (0.625 inch)  a long time ago and everything was still on my old hard drive.

 

They are ready for you now. Whew!

When I was sewing my flowers, I was surprised how much bigger these are than 0.5 inch hexagons—and how much smaller than 0.75 inch hexagons.

Just Right?

This size might be just right—not too big, not too small—for your fabric, especially if you are fussy cutting (fussy printing). (See the “Top Ten Tutes” tab for a tutorial on fussy cutting.)

 

It is even more dramatic when they are sewn into flowers.

Monkey says geometry is weird. How can 1/8 of an inch make so much difference?

Hexagons are always named by the length of a finished side. You can see all of the sizes in the Index of Shapes.

 

As usual, the related shapes are included in the Shape Collection.

As usual, the new shape collection is on sale at a very low price for a few days only.

 

FREE Design Book

As usual, when you buy the shapes to print on fabric, the design book is free—even when you buy the shapes on sale!

The scale of the print in Northcott Belle Provence is perfect for this size, don’t you think?

 

Just in case you need a reminder, we have a list of reasons why quilters love Inklingo hexagons, including video.

Whether you follow a pattern or design your own hexagon quilt in Electric Quilt, we think you will love this size.

More to come. . .

When you asked for 5/8 inch hexagons (0.625 inch), it was lucky that I found my original files. Good news! I also found some other very cool “almost finished” shape collections. Some unusual shapes.

There were some major interruptions to my work in 2011 and early this year.  I had forgotten about some of these shapes! I stumbled on some treasure.

Stay tuned for more good stuff, okay?

How to Sew Hexagons by Machine (The Movie)

I had my first experience with sewing on a machine before I was old enough to go to kindergarten, and I love machine piecing, hand piecing, and appliqué.

However, Monkey is famous as a hand piecing snob, thanks to my first Quilted Diamonds books—more than ten years ago already!

 

IS THAT THE HAND PIECING SNOB?

Yes! Now, even Monkey has to admit that hexagons are fun to sew by machine too—thanks to Inklingo.

 

The movie shows how to sew hexagons by machine for a GFG (Grandmother’s Flower Garden) quilt. (If you click the little icon at the lower right, you can watch full screen.)

I used red thread and printed the lines a little darker than usual to make it camera-friendly.

The lovely “Vintage Rosie” fabric was provided by Patti Carey, the Marketing Director at Northcott Fabric. Even the fabric with the black background is light enough on the wrong side to print easily with Inklingo.

We think you will agree that sewing inset seams by machine is easy when you have lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo.

Monkey’s newest movie turned out pretty well, don’t you think? Did you see Monkey’s “Moment of Zen?” at the very end?

Have you seen our other movies on YouTube? Monkey says this one our best so far.

REMINDER

As usual, the new hexagon shapes are at a very special intro price—but for a few days only!

We would love it if you would tell your friends in person and online (Yahoo and other groups) about the new movie. Monkey says they will thank you later—maybe even machine piece a hexie quilt for you!

See you soon!
