Bubbles and Hexagons on YouTube

Since I'm locked out of my real classrooms, I decided to invite my students into my studio (aka, dining room) to see a quick demonstration of my Bubbles and Hexagons quilts. Check out the YouTube video (4 minutes). Lots of pics, 3 quilts, and I show you the steps to creating the illusion of whole hexagons using half hexagons!

I made 2 large quilts and 1 medium, based on my first small one published in 1997. Do you remember it?

This was a new workshop in 2019. The main quilt uses 2-1/2" strips cut into half hexagons.

Then I made a larger one using a Layer Cake (10" squares). The 4-1/2" template is also included in the pattern (both hard copy and pdf). I have since put a beautiful border on this.

And you may remember this quilt made using a Benartex layer cake (Social Butterfly). Click here to see some of the steps here on the blog.

So, check out my Bubbles and Hexagons 4 minute YouTube video showing how this is created. Let me know what you think. And check out the pattern in my Etsy shop.
