Bubbles and Hexagons Workshop

Bubbles and Hexagons is a "fool the eye" quilt that makes you think (and groan) about the possibility of y-seams. Good news - there aren't any! Here is the first one I made in 1997 and published in Quilt Magazine.

Half Hexagon Jewel mini quilt: 1997

Now I think you can see where those y-seams don't exist. Whew! Here is my first sample made using matching half hexagons to create the illusion of whole hexagons. This is very Jelly Roll friendly.

Bubbles and Hexagons

You can go with larger half-hexagons as I did in my Batik Bubbles Quilt. She just waits for a batik border.

In this class we strip cut our half-hexagons using either the 2-1/2" half hexagon template that comes with the pattern OR you can use your own (or mine) 60 degree triangle ruler to cut these half-hexagons. Yes, you can! It's easy and goes very quickly.

One more sample to inspire you. This is a great scrap buster, too! This quilt was made using a Layer Cake. That's a possibility for class if you want.

Here are two more recent finishes that were sent off to my local guild's charity endeavors:

Oh, Fudge collection using a layer cake: 44" x 44" (larger half-hexagons)

And some of the leftovers from another project (Half Hexagon Braid):

Bubbles and Hexagons: 42" x 49"

Workshop patterns include both sizes of hexagons and Supply List sent ahead of time gives clear cutting information.
