    Anyone making the Hickory Nut Hexagons?

    I stopped by a quilt shop on my way out of town Wed and bought the Hickory Nut template. The template is an original design from the shop. Eddie has a great tute on these: Tutorial on Hickory Nut quilt blocks

    I bought all three sizes but started with the largest Nut. My first was was like the first pancake, but my second was perfect. They are addictive! I like the fact that when you are done you are done. And on the shop website there is a nice statement about Eddie and a link to this board!

    The shop is so pretty. Lots of light, lots of quilt samples hanging up, and very friendly employees. It's about two hours from me so I always make time to stop when I'm passing by.
    Got fabric?

    I have the med & small. Have not used them yet. Please post a photo when you finish your quilt. I only found a few photos and would like to see more.

    You may have to call or email the shop for orders. I didn't see an order page on their website. I think the smallest was under $9 and the largest was about $23. Excellent quality templates and easy to rotary cut around. The shop has lots of pictures on their Facebook page. and there are a lot on Pinterest. I will post what I have done so far later this evening.

    I bought them way back when Eddie first did the tute but never used them. Now you make me want to pull them out . I've changed sewing rooms since then, Lord only knows which box they are packed away in--wish me luck

    Here is what I have done so far. The large size makes a perfect size place mat. I put the cup on it for scale. The color is much prettier then it shows.

    Thanks for posting your Hickory Nut. Very pretty colors. Nifty looking place mat. I'm loving those chicken feet!

    The Bird is my table center piece. It's fun and it wobbles and looks like I feel most of the time. LOL
