Block Construction
1. Each full hexagon block is made from 6 same-fabric template A triangles and one 1-3/4" x WOF strip. Each half hexagon is made from 3 same-fabric template A triangles and one 1-3/4" x approximately 21" strip. Organize the template A triangles into 49 sets of six same-fabric triangles and seven sets of three same-fabric triangles. Add one 1-3/4" x WOF strip to each set of triangles. Refer to the quilt photo to replicate the fabric combinations in our sample quilt, or be original and choose your own combinations.

2. Working with one triangle/strip set at a time, and with right sides together, align the base of one triangle with one long raw edge of the strip. The blunt triangle tip will extend beyond the opposite strip edge. Sew each triangle base to the strip, leaving a 1-1/2" gap between triangles. Press the seams open.

3. Align a rotary ruler with each triangle edge, and cut to separate the triangles from the strip.

4. Arrange each set of triangles into a hexagon as shown. (If working with a half-hexagon block, arrange the three triangles as a half-hexagon.) Join two pairs of triangles along adjacent edges. Press the seams open. Join a third triangle to each pair, forming a half-hexagon. Press the seam open. Matching the center points, join the two half-hexagons together to form a full hexagon block. Press the seam open.

Make 49 full hexagon and 7 half-hexagon blocks.

5. Referring to the Quilt Assembly Diagram, arrange the blocks into 7 rows of 7 full hexagons and one half-hexagon each. Note that every other row starts with a full hexagon. Place 15 template B or Br patches along each side.

6. Sew the template B patches to the hexagons in the first and last row, matching adjacent edges. Press the seams toward the B or Br patches.

7. Sew the hexagons together in vertical rows, backstitching at the beginning and end of each seam exactly at the seam allowance corners. Press the seams open.

8. Join the rows together along each angled edge, backstitching at the beginning and end of each seam. Do not stitch through the seam allowances. Press the seams open.

Finishing
9. Remove the selvages from each edge of the backing fabric. Cut the yardage into two equal lengths. With right sides together, join the two pieces together along one long edge and press the seam open.

10. Layer the quilt top, batting and backing. Quilt as desired.

11. Trim the excess batting and backing even with the quilt top.

12. Stitch the binding strips together along the short edges, using diagonal seams to make one long strip. Fold the strip lengthwise, with wrong sides together. Press. Stitch to the quilt front, matching raw edges and mitering the corners.

13. Fold the binding to the quilt back and hand-stitch the folded edge to secure.
