    Eddie,
    This is a great tutorial. I'll have to add this block to my very long list of projects to do. I sent an e-mail to your quilt shop asking about prices and if they shipped. Their kind answer came to me today. For those of you who are curious, here is what they sent me.

    Prices quoted Nov. 9, 2009
    Small - $6.25/set
    Large - $8.75/set
    Extra Large - 20.00/set
    Shipping and handling - $7.50 to Connecticut where my son lives.

    Connie

    I've got 26 pics to show, so bare with me while I get all the steps posted!
    I guess I must really be missing something, I can see how to do each block, but don't see how they are connected together.

    Hi Deb,

    After you get the blocks made, you simply but the edges together and do a zigzag stitch across where they are butted together in order to join them.

    Thanks, I saw where you stated that, but I didn't see it when I looked. I am anxious to start this!!! And on another note, for those of us who are mathematical challenged, ( or just not so good at) the hst that you did.... perhaps a cheat sheet that indicates....a 10 in block will give you four (whatever size they are) hst. A 9 in block, an 8 in block......

    Hi Deb,

    I have plans to make at least 3 more quilts for Christmas gifts, and plan to do one with that HST method of sewing 2 layer cakes pieces together, so will do a quick tutorial on it when I do it and post it here.

    I am (sort of) making a Grandmother's flower garden (I've made 2 flowers...in 4 years...) and this seems a zillion or times easier than English paper piecing... might scrap the first idea and do the quilt this way.

    Thanks for the tutorial!

    Ok so once you zigzag them all together they can make a quilt as is??
    I really like them and you did a great job Eddie! i will have to get those templates in the future.

    Yes, it's a "quilt as you go" project, so once they are connected together, you're done!

    For those that are interested in the pattern/templates for these, the templates are made by a quilt shop here in Arkansas called Hickory Hill Sewing Center. They have a website, but it doesn't have online ordering on it. They will, however, do mail order by phone, so if you want to call them to place your order, you can. Their phone number is (501) 318-2SEW. They have 3 sizes of templates, Small (2.5" finished block size), Large (3.5"), and Extra Large (6.5").

    Boy, I sure am glad you posted this marvelous tut.
    I had been trying to figure out since I saw your first posting how to make them.
    I will be trying these during the holiday break from school.
    Thanks Eddie, you're the best.

    Hi Tabby,

    The templates for this are sold by a LQS here in Arkansas called Hickory Hill Quilt and Sewing Center. They are their own design and they sell them in their shop. They're about a 1/2 hour away from me, so I went over there last week and bought some for members here who wanted one and mailed them to them. It'll probably be a while before I head over that way again, but if you want to contact them directly I feel pretty sure they would do mail order for you. Their e-mail address is info@hhqsewingcenter.com If they can't do mail order for you, then let me know and I can get you one the next time I'm over there. It may be a couple of weeks or so, though.
    Eddie was it in Benton i'm going to Benton tomorrow

    They're actually in Hot Springs. If you go on Highway 5 from Benton to Hot Springs, you turn on Highway 7 north and they are about 1/2 mile further on the left.

    Glad to hear you're getting them, Nikki! I have all 3 sizes of sets as well. I was in their store last Saturday and they said they've gotten quite a few orders from those who saw them here on the QB, so they've been shipping them all over the place.

    Thanks for the great tutorial, Eddie. You made it look really easy. May just have to take a trip to Hot Springs when I next visit LR. Usually get to Hobby Lobby and forget to go other places!

    question - I have a hexagon template that has from 1" to 5" templates - - - I could use that right? same concept just different template? It only cost $6.50 and I could have three sizes - 1"/3", 2"/4" and 3"/5" - - - I will try it and see what happens... THANKS for the tutorial - looks so easy to me - I can't wait to see if I can do it...
