The Hex Trade – Virtual

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Using simple strip piecing techniques and a 60⁰ ruler (or your favourite triangular ruler), join Janet Barker to explore the many possible block variations in this hexagon sampler quilt. Triangles are cut and traded to create new patch combinations such as spinning stars, baby blocks, pinwheels, hexagonal wagon wheels and pieced triangle variations. Note that there are no Y-seams involved! Janet will also dip into her extensive collection of hexie samples to show alternate sizes and settings, demonstrating that a wide variety of projects can be made using your Hex Trade block designs. The required pattern is included in the course fee.  Course material list will be provided after registration.  You can dig into your own stash.  A 60 degree ruler is also needed.
