Hexagons are the theme of the newest issue of Quiltmaker. Check out the creative technique Anita Grossman Solomon uses on page 20 to make two-sided hexagons in her quilt, Hexacadabra. Then flip to the Creative Spark section on page 24 to see variations of the quilt created in EQ7.

Check out the Drawing Hexagons in EQ7 lesson available on Quiltmaker’s site too! One way to draw a hexagon with pencil and paper is to inscribe it in a circle. We can draw a hexagon much the same way in EQ7 using the Circle grid on the PatchDraw worktable.

Take a look at the lesson and you’ll soon be drawing hexagon blocks like the ones shown in the sampler quilt here.
