- The first in the "Playing With Hexagons" series. This design is easily pieced, and includes a triangle to square up the blocks. You can piece two block designs in the one set.
- The "Playing With Hexagons" series consists of hexagon blocks of a consistent size, so you can mix and match designs!
- The blocks are made by hand or machine. Either way rotary cutting is easy when using the Matildas Own Rotating Mat and a small wheel rotary cutter!
- Merry-Go-Round can be made as 2 different blocks.
Option 1: Sew the C triangle to the B wedge to form a larger triangle. The C triangle has been nubbed to make for easier sewing. Stitch 3 of these triangles together to form hald a hexagon and repeat. Join the two halves together to make a larger hexagon. Alternate the fabrics for the C and B templates as shown in the diagram in the instructions.
Option 2: Use the A hexagon as the centre and attach 6 B wedges to make the larger hexagon.
Hints and Tips
Use one or other of the blocks or make a mix of them in your quilt. Join the finished blocks together with the D triangle and also use this triangle for squaring up. The dashed centre line of the D triangle becomes the seam line and the solid line becomes the cutting line.
