At the April meeting, Paula and Arita demonstrated the fabulous hexie technique they learned in Jacquie Gering‘s class at QuiltCon.

We decided to use a black/white + bright solid colourway for this month’s challenge.

Arita and Hexagons


  • when cutting, start with 5½” strips
  • only piece the hexies in sets of three – don’t piece the sets to each other
  • colourway is two hexies in black/white plus one in a bright solid, any order is fine
  • make as many sets of three hexies as you like – there will be a block lottery at the May 20th meeting

If you missed the April meeting and didn’t get a tutorial handout explaining the cutting/piecing technique, email Arita at and she’ll email one to you. This tutorial on Jacquie’s blog shows the sewing-together technique in case you win the blocks :).
