Large Hexagon Quilt Tutorial today to be sharing with you the tutorial for Hexagon Quilt. I was able to whip this Halloween Quilt up very quickly using a half hexagon quilt ruler, this free Hexagon Quilt Pattern, and a bunch of Halloween fabric fat quarters.

This large hexagon Halloween quilt is made up with an extremely random selection from my Halloween fabric stash.

I decided to stick to blacks, oranges, and whites, trying to vary the scale of the prints for interest.   I think that all large-scale prints would have been a bit overwhelming for this size of a quilt.

However, I do think the large hexagon shape lends itself well to both large and novelty prints. It’s a great quilt to make if you’re looking to use up a lot of fabric scraps.

You could easily use this Large Hexagon Quilt pattern to make a quilt for any season or occasion. It does not have to be a Halloween quilt. This pattern would also make a great baby quilt!

Normally when you piece hexagons together for a quilt you end up with a difficult to sew “Y” seam.  To avoid having to sew Y seams, I used a special half hexagon quilt ruler when I cut out my quilt.

By cutting the hexagon in half you can avoid this by sewing 1/2 hexagon shapes together in rows, thus avoiding Y seams.

Just know that you do have to plan ahead to get the look that you want. Last weekend we headed down to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, KY for a little photo shoot.

I have always photographed my quilts at home before and thought it would be fun to try a little “quilts in the wild” photo shoot this time.

To finish the quilt I decided to free motion quilt spiderwebs on to the quilt. I couldn’t bring myself to quilt a spider web in every hexagon (although that would have been cool), so I chose to quilt 5 large spiderwebs then fill in a few of the hexagons with their own web.
