Since Pieced Hexies Deux will already have Pieced Hexie Star Patterns in it frees me up to move one to other motifs using Pieced Hexies.
First up I wanted to do something for those who have the “Ring Around The Hexies” book. So this design is composed of BOOMER, blanks and 50/50s. As always you will need the book for instruction on how to make the hexie.
Let’s first start with a diamond motif.
The diamond is pretty much a staple in hexie quilts and this design pattern can be dropped into any pattern you find on the internet.
As I have said before ANY Pieced Hexie can be substituted into ANY traditional hexie pattern ….thus the design possibilities are endless.
Sidebar: I decided to name these Diamond/Medallion PDF patterns by the date they are released on the blog. Since they (note I said they….yes the pattern book of this is already pages deep) will span all three books it will be up to you to read the top paragraph/or corresponding blog to find out if you can make this design with the books you own. Of course if you own all three (at this time that would be Pieced Hexies, Ring Around the Hexie, and Pieced Hexies Deux (Jan release) then you are all good. I won’t post any PDFs using “Deux” designs until late January.
So once I had the diamond designed I wanted to take it to the next level, a center medallion.
To do so you need to drop one of the ends of the diamond and make a center ring of hexies in the traditional double rosette pattern for it to link up to.
YES! You could do this first ring of center hexies using ANY Pieced Hexies designs. I am leaving them blank at this time for sanity sake. 🙂
Here is were I am at with a center medallion. The pdf gives you coloring sheets for both the diamond and the center medallion. You will find it on my PDF page…click PDF at the top of this page. Scroll down until you find the new section for Diamond/Medallion patterns. ENJOY!
You can take the leap to your large hexie quilt. I know you can. Jump in the waters fine.
Off to finish the last bit of baking,
