The thing I love the most about this adorable block is how unique the cuts are. No more half square triangles or 9-patch blocks. It’s something totally unique!
This is an incredibly easy quilt to stitch up, as Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company shows in the tutorial below. Not only that, but the end result looks like a stained glass window! How cool is that?
Want to make them yourself? Here’s what you’ll need:
As for the cuts, Jenny uses a half hexagon template. Seriously, it really is that easy. The hexagon template creates the little slices perfectly for you. Then, it’s all about arranging and trimming!
Trim off some excess fabric to create a full block rather than just having a ton of half hexagons stacked on top of each other. Twist the blocks around to make and offset look, making it look like a window.
Sashing & Borders
Then it’s time for the sashing. Jenny just uses black strips for this, which once again, adds to the window effect. Once you stitch the sashing on in between all of the blocks, it’s border time.
Jenny creates hers with some floral fabric that ties the whole quilt together, framing the blocks perfectly. Then you add your border, backing and batting, and you’re done!
