I told myself that I wasn't going to do a Christmas quilt this year. I still haven't even put up the tree and I will be picking up Mom and Uncle John on Sunday for a week long visit, with my sister and her family coming from Missouri on Wednesday. There is always so much going on. But I really wanted to show how to draft a hexagon quilt in Electric Quilt and I decided this is a really easy project
So I couldn't resist. I have two table topper options for you.
The video on how I drafted this quilt in EQ is here. It is less complicated than it looks.
Rotary cutting charts for the blocks are here. Sizing is exact (i.e. no oversized pieces).
For the borders use 1-1/2" strips for the sashing (4 1-1/2” x 7" and 4 1-1/2” x 8”)and 2-1/2" strips for the outer border (4 2-1/2” x 12” and 4 2-1/2” x 8”). I have a few diagrams on piecing the borders.
If this is a Christmas gift, you can stitch in the ditch and it will be done in a jiffy.
Happy quilting -- and Merry Christmas.
