Introducing: Hexie Framed Quilt Pattern

I’m super excited to introduce this new quilt pattern!  A fun jelly roll friendly Hexie Quilt.


Hexagons are super popular right now in quilts and this is a fun twist to the classic Hexie quilt.   I’ve yet to attempt a Y seam so this pattern is made up of half hexies which go together in rows and are much easier to piece.

The whole process of writing this pattern was a really fun one.   I’m always up for a new challenge and I knew sooner or later I would attempt a pattern.   My original Hexie Framed quilt resulted in a lot of requests for a pattern so it was the perfect opportunity to dive right in!

Hexie framed is the perfect Jelly Roll quilt as it uses 2.5″ strips.   I love precuts and I love patterns that make them easy to use.    I used an actually jelly roll in only one of the patterns I tested though ;)

For the twin size I chose Vanessa Christensen’s new Color Theory Line.   And I happened to have a fat eighth bundle on hand so I cut my strips from that.   This hexie quilting pattern shows off fabric lines really well.  It’s great for those fabrics you adore and really want to display.

I machine quilted this one with straight lines using my walking foot.

I went with a gray 108″ wide backing and gray binding to match.

You can find this pattern in my shop!   Click on the photo below to be directed there.


A hexagon ruler (around 4.5″)  is helpful for this pattern but not necessary as a template is included.   I used Jaybird Quilts HEX N MORE RULER

Fabrics Used:
Robert Kaufman Kona Solid in White
Color Theory Jelly Rolls by V&Co for Moda
Backing:   Grey Moda Bella Solid
Batting:   Quilter’s Dream

I recommend this sewing machine  for piecing and a walking foot for straight line quilting.

  • jennifer_bl - I bought the pattern and am just about ready to start cutting my first half hexies. I have a question before I do though. Do you use something like Best Press or a spray starch on the colored pieces before you start? Just curious, as I know I’ll be sewing on the bias of the hexy pieces. My triangle quilts (where the bias edge was at least a few inches longer) seemed to go together easier when I did, but I wondered if I could avoid that step. Would love your advice!ReplyCancel

    • Emily@QuiltyLove - I actually only used Best Press for the first time yesterday ;) I haven’t had any trouble with hexie or triangles not using it. There certainly is a little more give to the fabric and it might be beneficial to use it but certainly not necessary. Sometimes the strech is helpful when lining up the rows.ReplyCancel

  • THERESA - How many jelly rolls did you use for this quilt. I have only one of the roll I’d like to use. also, I like a size 55×75’ish. throw or lap size. would this work with just one roll?ReplyCancel

  • donna d blanchard - I tried to email you through your blog contact. I want to order your hexi quilt pattern. My Hex N more ruler just arrived. Will this pattern easily convert to a larger size? I will probably be stripping fabric as opposed to getting hekktReplyCancel

  • Terry Uppinghouse - Love your quilt! I purchased the pattern and am excited to make it. I do have the Hexnmore ruler. The template included in your pattern does match any of the sizes on the ruler. You said you used this ruler for your quilt. Which half hexi size on the ruler did you use. Thank you for your help.ReplyCancel
