Hexactagon Tutorial

Achieve the look of English paper piecing without using paper! The markings on the 13 different templates help you align the shapes "hexactly" as needed on printed fabrics if you are fussy cutting. The holes are provided so that you may mark the beginnings and endings of each seam. Sew the shapes together easily by hand or machine, just one short seam at a time, using my "connect the dots" method (instructions are included).

Hexactagon templates come in three sizes: 1¼”, 1¾” and 2¾”.  These are the measurements of a single, unfinished edge. 
The finished sides measure 1”, 1½” and 2½”.

SideSetter templates come in three sizes: 1¼”, 1¾” and 2¾”.  These are the measurements of a single, unfinished (short) edge. 
The finished short sides measure 1”, 1½” and 2½”.  The SideSetter can be used in a variety of ways. If you are making a quilt entirely of hexagons, you'll need half-hexagons on two edges of the quilt and half diamonds on the other two edges. This template has both of those shapes (including the seam allowances). The SideSetter may also be used to "frame" a hexagon of corresponding size. An interesting pattern can also be created by sewing two SideSetters together, making a hexagon from two contrasting fabrics. The resulting hexagon will be compatible with the corresponding templates as listed for each size SideSetter.

HexactaKite templates come in two sizes.  The larger one measures 5 1/2" inches (unfinished) from top to bottom. The smaller HexactaKite measures just under 2" top to bottom (unfinished). Three kites sewn together make an equilateral triangle. Imagine the possibilities! By combining different fabrics, whether fussy-cut or not, you can create beautiful "tiling" designs. The smaller HexactaKite is perfect for hand-piecing, and if you sew 18 of them together (six triangles made from three kites each), the resulting hexagon is the same size as the large Hexactagon!
