    Default Make a Surprise Half Hexi Quilt with Jenny! New tutorial



    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Hmm, I see the possibilities. But, why not use a jelly roll for the half hexies? I have a solid red jelly roll.

    I would have to press those seams open - easier to quilt over.

    I can see this in red white and blue.

    What colors would you use?

    This pattern isn't for me. I got stressed just watching Jenny lay out the blocks. If I made it I would have to lay it out on point to have it make sense to my brain. The concept of sandwiching the half hexies is good.

    My first thought - less waste - less cutting. If the height of the template is more than 2 1/2" strips could be cut the proper height, instead of 5".

    I agree with Bubba, though, not really my taste, but always interesting to see the new ideas Jenny comes up with.

    I won't be making this one either. But Jenny's mind always is working to come up with something new. It's fun to watch her enthusiasm.

    Like the look of this quilt but then having to stitch all those hexies down isn't for me.

    Stitching down the hexies would be easy on my Babylock. It has the option of automatically lifting the presser foot when I stop and I have an open foot which helps with seeing where the needle is hitting.

    Jenny is using their Missouri Star template which is made to use on charm squares and you can get two hexies from a 5 inch charm so you should be able to lay the template on a jelly roll strip and just flip flop it down the strip when cutting all those hexies. I think it would be less waste.

    Now then, are all these ideas Jenny's or do people submit ideas to her and she "runs" with it?

    I really liked this one. You could also do as a quilt as you go. Then the stiching around the hexie would be part of the quilting. I agree with using a jelly roll.
