Easy Hexagon Pillow

Designed by Karen O’Connor of www.redroosterquilts.com

 2 – Aspen Frost Mini Charm Packs or 68 – 2 1/2″ squares
1/4 yard Grunge for border
1/2 yard for backing
1 3/4 yards red
1 3/8″ rick rack
1 – 14″ pillow form 1 ruler with 60 degree angle lines


Cut each 2 1/2″ square in half.

Place your ruler with the 60 degree angle like this  and cut:

Place ruler with the 60 degree angle on the other side like this and cut:

Cut all of the pieces so they look like this:

Arrange pieces like this:

Arrange the pieces as desired with 9 in a row and 7 rows of complete hexagons.

Sew the pieces into rows.  

Press each rows seams the opposite way.

Sew the rows together.

Square up to 11 1/2″.

Cut 2 – 2 1/2″ strips by WOF.  Cut into 2 – 2 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ and 2 – 2 1/2″ x 14 1/2″.  Sew the 11 1/2″ pieces on first to two opposite sides.  Then sew the 14 1/2″ pieces to the other sides.  I did not quilt this pillow but you certainly could if you would like.

To make the back for the pillow.  Cut a strip 14 1/2″ wide.  Make 2 – 14 1/2″ x 20″ rectangles.  Press the rectangles in half so they are 14 1/2″ x 10″. 

Place the hexagon quilt top on your table right side up.  Place the back pieces on the top aligning the raw edges to the raw edges on each side of the pillow top.  The folded edges will overlap. 

Stitch 1/4″ around the pillow.  At the corners, use a spool of thread and trace around it to make your corners rounded.  It makes sewing the rick rack on much easier to go around the corners.

Iron your rick rack in half.  Place the folded edge along the seam line and hand stitch in place. 

Stuff you pillow form inside the opening and ENJOY!

Makes 1 – 14″ pillow

This is my second Moda Bake Shop project.  I hope you enjoy this one!  You can purchase a kit from our web site at www.redroosterquilts.com for $25.
