Friendship Braid Quilt Idea Using Half Hex Ruler
Hi it’s Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
For those of you who have the Half Hexi Ruler, we’ve got a new idea for you. It works with the big or the small. Take a look at this. This is like a braid, a friendship braid or a chevron. Whatever you want to call it. This makes just a darling quilt, and quick and easy.
So what we’re going to do here…actually Natalie was sitting one day at her desk and she’s got, she has these things laid out and all of a sudden she started playing with them and she’s like…she put them like this and she’s like, “Oh my gosh, look at this! They fit exactly perfectly.” And so then we had to get the Half Hexis and try them. So these are the little Half Hexis. Makes that kind of a friendship braid. And then this is the big one and it makes this kind of a braid.
So really, the only little seam you’re going to have to sew is when you lay this out. You’ll have a little half seam right here. See how this…this little half seam right here. So you’ll lay this over. Start at the end and you’ll finish right here in the middle. That’ll be your little half seam. And then this next one is going to fit on there perfectly. So then you’re just sewing these straight, long seams. So it makes this darling thing.
This is a new fabric line called Adornit. This is it right here. We met these guys at Market, and this was so much fun because it’s just a mom and her daughters and we just had so much fun with them because it’s just like a little family like us. And so they are just, you know, getting started. And they’re doing it, and they just have some darling fabric. We are going to carry it all of course because we loved it. And take a look at these different prints. I mean really fun. Really creative. Really great family. Anyway, we hope you’ve enjoyed this quick tip from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
