Hexagonal Log Cabin Quilt Block

You can make this block any size but the size of fabric strips we are using lends itself to making bigger blocks. I made mine 18.5″ square.

Supplies Needed:

– A hexagon template  – 2.5″ wide fabric strips  – Rotary cutter and a straight ruler – Square quilting ruler

Step 1: Cut a Small Hexagon

Use any hexagon template you have to hand to cut your starting hexie.

Step 2: Sort your Fabric Strips

Sort your 2.5″ fabric strips into two piles – one for your background fabric color and one for your accent color.

Take your hexagon and one accent color strip of approximately 5″ in length and sew your first seam.

Step 3: Sewing & Trimming

For the next seam, take a second accent strip or dark strip and sew rights together moving around the hexagon and crossing the seam you sewed.

Repeat until you have sewn 3 accent strips to your hexagon.
