Tutorial: How To Draw Hexagon For Quilt Block
I can’t remember if I learned this during primary school, but I definitely remember the way my mum taught me while making hexagon quilt blanket for us… using a compass to draw…. My first lesson to sew a hexagon flower quilt block is to draw this cardboard hexagon templates. Till today, I still hear my mum’s voice mumbling in my ears….
“a perfect hexagon flower quilt block comes from precised hexagon templates”…..
Until I was a little older, I learned to use an angular ruler to draw hexagons in my formal education, like divide the 360° into 6 part in a circle etc…. But, I still love my mum’s way, with just a simple tool, a compass…. so straight forward and fool proof!!! If you are using computer aided software to generate hexagon template, this is one of the simplest methods…. just replace the compass with circles.
