Hex of a Tool

Hexagons are another handwork project I really enjoy but I don’t make grandmother’s flower garden quilts, in fact, all I seem to do these days is make the hexagon pieces. In the future I’ll have another random drawing and the prize will be over 200 hexagons!

The other day I drew up a design and asked my son if he would make this little tool using his 3D printer. I know there are all kinds of hexagon papers and templates available for purchase but this was more fun and my son likes a challenge. He’s fine tuning the design now but here is a look at the original.

At the end of the video are some photos of a few quilts/patchworks I have made using hexagons. Have you made grandmother’s flower garden or other hexagon quilts or used fabric hexagons in a unique way?
