    pretty quilt on flyer

    i opened my sunday paper to find a lovely quilt on the cover of joann's weekly ad. i found the flyer online here http://joann.shoplocal.com/joannsale...tores-120708NP so you can see what i'm talking about. it rather looks like a grandmother's flower garden. would the centers have to be appliqued on? does anyone know what pattern this might be?

    It looks like a variation of the Sexy Hexy quilt by Amy Butler http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/pdfs/...Love_Quilt.pdf

    That gives a better view, than the Joanne's photo. Except SexyHexy has 3 layers, and Joanne's only has 2 layers.

    As mentioned above, you could do strip sets, then cut in 60 triangles as you would for OBW ... and assemble in the same fashion.

    It makes quite a lovely quilt either as a scrappy, or with coordinated fabrics. A LQS has one as a class sample done all in brown/beige/peach batiks. So peaceful and calming.

    Here's a link to cutting instructions. It was a quilt along from 2010 and includes links to 7 block layouts and finishing directions.

    Its made using a 60 degree ruler, and can be done by cutting strips. If you google 60 degree hexagon quilt pattern you'll find many tutes, fons and porter also did this one. I think Missouri Star quilt company also has a tute for it on youtube. You might also try modabake shop.

    You would think that a fabric store should know that Quilter's are going to want to know this stuff. They should have put a small note on the flyer but isn't it great that so many QB friends have your back?

    Sewing with Nancy had a segment recently where they created a hexagon quilt similar, well, exactly like this one but they used 1/2 square triangles to square it up instead of having a scalloped edge. The technique was great; no set-in seams. Google her shows and look for it. You'll be glad you did.

    I also love the quilt - saw the flyer and my first thought was that I have not seen those fabrics in our Joann's. May have to go check out what they have now as it has been a couple of months since I was in there last.

    To me it looks like it is pre printed fabric or some call it cheaters cloth. You purchase the amount you want and quilt it like you would any other quilt. Some of the pre printed fabric looks pieced once it is quilted. I have a Baltimore Sampler one that is the family favorite and I cut it apart & made my own pattern and quilted around the various flowers etc and it looks like it is hand appliqued.
    Happy Quilting

    I just made one like this and used 2 1/2 strips cut at 60 degree angles. I love it but have not taken a photo yet. I must do that

    I have also made one similar to this but used 3 colors sewn into strips and the 60 degree ruler. One thing to remember is you only piece a half block at a time joining into a row. Repeat sewing the rows together so you have all straight seams the same as OBW's are put together. The one I did is scrappy and they are a lot of fun to make.
