    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?

    I have a copy of this issue. On page 18 there are directions for making "log-cabin style hexagon blocks". There is also a quilt, using these blocks, called Feedsack Flowers.

    Thanks so much for finding that video! It pretty much explains all you need to know to make the log cabin hex block - and even nicer that you don't have to have the hex ruler!

    I believe you need to make triangles to join them in rows.

    I just picked up a book i have called All Quilt Blocks are Not Square by Debra Wagner and it has the Ozark Tile block in there. way too difficult they way they do it. it can be done like the 10 minute blocks with more inserted squares inbetween the blocks when rows are put together. I'd never do one difficult again when show an easier way.

    Yes, you need to put a triangle on opposite sides of the hexagon. This link will give you an idea of how it works:

    Don't know if this has already been posted so I will post it.lol
    It was the 1800 series and the quilt is jewels in the garden by Gail Kessler. Does that sound right?
    They show the pic in the magazine and then refer you to their website to download it. Hope this helps if you're still looking.

    Thank you.......this shows how to add the triangles and then sew the hexagons together. This board is the best!

    It was 1900 series, show 1904. I've been looking for the pattern also. I've been quilting for 4 years and this one sounds interesting. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know what a digital pattern is? Is it one that is downloaded when you pay for it. I found it for $5.00.

    A digital pattern is one that is downloaded after you pay for it. Where did you find the pattern?
