Two Tip Tuesday – Hex-a-ma-jig Workshop

On Saturday I taught a Hex-a-ma-jig Workshop for my Blackstone Valley Heritage Quilters Guild. It was great to share several of the quilts included in the instruction booklet of the Hex-a-ma-jig tool.  All the students got underway in making the quilt of their choice.  I missed getting photos of many but I did get several.  I’ll show them below.

Some of the comments from the class….

“these are actually fun to cut!”

“I love the variety of this one tool”

“Great for so many different fabrics”

I’m thrilled with all the results!! I will have many more photos of the quilts from this class to show in future posts.  And another under progress in class and just yesterday, finished!!

Some tips in working with Hex-a-ma-jig to pass along…

#1- Pre-cut 3 1/2″ strips before you begin.  Then your time cutting is focused and productive!

#2 – Use “True Grips” (or similar) on the tool to keep it from slipping and in place when cutting.

in quilting and hexies!
