Folded Hexagon Flowers Tutorial with Liberty Garden

Liberty Garden for Spring and Giveaway!

Liberty Garden by Benartex is a perfect collection for Spring. The flowers and colors celebrate all the newness that this season brings our way. I received all 33 of the skus, but I narrowed it down to just six for the project I had in mind. 

Six fabrics chosen from Liberty Garden
For this mini project, I decided to revisit some of my 3-D hexagons, yoyos and prairie point flower leaves. First, let's see what I mean for the folded hexie! Then I think you'll understand my steps.

Head on over to Sew in Love with Fabric to see how this 3-D Folded Hexagon Flower is made!
Folded hexagon with yo-yo center 

And you'll get the link for making folded prairie points and the FREE pattern for this quilt I call Trash Basket Batiks!

You can see the prairie points (and yo-yos) in the pic below:


GIVEAWAY is a fat quarter bundle of Liberty Garden fabrics. Aren't they delicious?

  1. I love that the folded patches aren't made from circles! Having to use circles seems to waste so much fabric and the way you've cut the hexagons is so clever!

  46. I love those folded 3D flowers! They add a wonderful dimension to a quilt, and, depending on the fabric and design, can make it seem more light-hearted or elegant. I'd like to try it with Asian fabrics for a different feel.

  54. Thanks for the tutorial for the hexies folded from hexies, Debby, and for the chance to win such joyful fabric! I've done the hexies folded from circles several times (used the cut-offs for a confetti quilt), but will definitely give this one a try. Also love the yo-yo in the center! I used buttons inherited from Mom to cover the center on a wall-hanging, but had not yet tried the yo-yo. Thanks as always for inspiration and guidance!

  58. Hello Debby! These are gorgeous fabrics you have chosen! I would love to win them and create the Folded Hexy flowers and the Folded Prairie Points into this lovely project you have designed. Every part of the project makes me smile and think of Spring, especially since here in Southern Oregon we are getting a lot of rain still and I have not gone out and done any weeding in my flower beds because of the cold, not because of the rain. LOL. So, I play inside creating quilts with flowers instead! LOL. Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous tutorials and special beautiful projects! I also appreciate the opportunity for the chance to win these gorgeous fabrics! Have a great day!

  83. I really like that technique and the look of the folded hexagons. I was interested in seeing the geometry of how the large hexagon changed into an elongated diamond and then back into a hexagon, too! That's a good use for large scraps, too. Thanks for the tutorial, and thanks for the giveaway, to you and to the wonderful designers at Benartex. dezertsuz at gmail

  92. Debby , I love the prairie point leaves. You're so good at demonstrating the hexie cutting and stitching. That is a technique I've not tried yet, and it seems those hexies are all the rage right now:) Thank for your sharing your mini.
