It’s a hexie pattern release!
Today I am absolutely delighted to present TWO new patterns to you: Tumbleweed and her adorable little sister, Teeny Tumbler.
These two quilts are the perfect thing for your favorite fabric collections. They are made for precuts, so you can literally get one of every favorite fabric into your quilt and frame each one! If you’re making Tumbleweed, grab a Layer Cake (10″ precut squares) or for Teeny Tumbler get a Charm Pack (5″ precut squares)!
This pattern has been in the works for years now and I’m so excited that it’s finally getting it’s day in the sun. I debuted it at the Lancaster Quilt show and everyone loved it as much as I do, so needless to say, whatever your take on it will be a showstopper as well.
About the Quilt
This quilt design actually started with a design challenge from QuiltCon back in 2020. The challenge was to use stripes in a quilt. Pretty straightforward. I thought the idea of using stripes to look like they were pieced was an interesting idea so I paired it with some precut hexagons from You & Me Fabrics that I had been holding onto for a few years (their Indah Batik line was just so dreamy!). Below you can see my prototype quilt that was King sized!
After some tweaking, simplifying, and sitting on the design (you know, having babies and such) it’s finally been tested and perfected!
Perfect for Fussy Cuts
I am a big fan of showing off favorite fabrics and a real sucker for fussy cuts. When creating this hexagon quilt, I wanted to make sure that nothing got in the way of a good fussy cut!
In addition to keeping a continuous hexagon for fussy cutting I wanted to create a hexagon quilt that involved NO Y seams. So, rest assured, there’s no funny business here and you won’t be asking yourself Y you started this project halfway through (teehee)
Let the Stripes do the Work
The great part about this quilt is that big blocks and stripes come together quickly! It’s a bit of cutting to get those stripes just right (if you choose to use stripes), but it’s a sewing breeze once you get started!
What will you create!?
The great part of pattern testing (and releasing) is to see what you come up with. Use stripes…or don’t! Who knows what you’ll come up with!?
