Quilt Block Tutorial: Swirling Hexagon

 
Swirling Hexagon Tutorial
 
Version 1
 
 
This Hexagon quilt piece will require 6 different fabrics and can be made as large as you’d like just by continuing the swirl. This tutorial will use three 1” wide strips and a 1” triangle per each color.
 
 
Cutting:

  1. 1. This tutorial will use six 5” square pieces,
  2. 1” triangle acrylic template, and a 2” Wide Hexagon template
  3. (printed from online).

  1. 2. Cut each fabric into three 1” wide strips
  2. (at least 2 strips have to be 5” long) and 1 ¾” square.

  1. 3. Use the 1” triangle template to cut the 1 ¾” square into a triangle.
 
 
Piecing:
Center Hexagon (2”): (using 6 different colored 1” triangles ) *split and press each seam after sewing.

  1. 1. Sew 1st triangle to the 2nd triangle.
  2. 2. Sew 3rd triangle to the 2nd triangle.
  3. 3. Repeat (a.) and (b.) for triangles 4-6.
  4. 4. Sew 1st set of triangles to the 2nd set of triangles.  *Carefully align the center point and pin. Be ready to use the seam ripper on this step because getting the two sets to align perfectly will take time and effort)
  1. 5. Using the 2” hexagon, trim the sewn piece to make a clean 2” hexagon center piece.
  2. *Again carefully align the center and corners to end up with a perfect hexagon.

 

Swirling Color Strips: (*This tutorial will create 3 rings of swirling colors. More rings can be added to create a larger final hexagon.)

  1. 1. Sew first strip matching the color of the triangle. The strip will need to be at least ¾” longer on the bottom. Leave ¼” un-sewn on bottom for partial seam for the final strip of this ring.
  2. 2. Press outwards and trim.
  3. 3. Sew next strip matching up the triangle colors.
  1. 4. Repeat until you create a full ring of colors. For final strip of the ring, pin back the first strip of the ring with partial seam and sew the final strip. Remove pin, fold back the pressed seam and continue the stitch of the seam.
  2. 5. Trim the strips by cutting parallel to the previous strip to create a clean hexagon.
  3. 6. Repeat Steps (a.) thru (e.) for the next 3 or more rings. Remember to start out the first strip of each ring with a partial seam.
  4. 7. After the final trim of the 3rd ring, you will be left with a approx. 4.5” Hexagon piece.
