Yesterday I received the new Mobilia brochure. Low and behold, there are hexagons everywhere! The latest craze in quilting is also in home dec. Have a peak at their website www.mobilia.ca. Notice the large houndstooth wall hanging as well. We will be offering a class on the houndstooth shortly.
We think of the hexagon as a boring Grandmothers Flower Garden block, but really the possibilities are endless. Divide up the hexagon and end up with a 3D tumbling block.
Add points and you’ve got a star.
Modern quilting has taken the hexagons, enlarged them and added borders. Gorgeous!
They can be made with the method of English paper piecing, templates orthe new hex rulers
