    Looking for Fons and Porter Magazine with Hexagon Quilt Pattern

    Two days ago I saw a episode of Fons and Porter where they made a Hexagon Quilt. I did not catch the series number. I have search their web site and can not find it. Does anyone know what magazine it was featured in or what the series number is? Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    Good luck in finding the Fons and Porter Hexagon templates - I have been looking at JoAnns every time that I go and they have an empty spot for the tool - just no tool. Sewing with Nancy also had a show on making a very large hexagon quilt and it is an easy way to to Grandmother's Flower Garden. She probably has her own templates too.

    I have also searched for this pattern ....no luck. I think they referred to it as nuts and bolts (???) They center hexagon is cut from a 3 1/2" fabric strip but I don't know the width of the log pieces. The log pieces were added in a clockwise rotation. I will keep looking.....

    Here is a video I found on how to make the hexagons. I still would like to see the completed quilts that were on the show.

    The quilt that the lady in the video is standing in front of is very interesting! Any one know the name?

    I believe that it was is the Easy Quilts - Scrap Quilts Fall 2011 magazine. Does anyone have a copy that can verify this for me?
