5 inch Hexagon Template Printable and Baby Quilt Pattern

Share the love!

I know what you’re thinking….5 inch hexagon template?! Who uses that?  I’ll tell you who- me!  I get these wild and crazy ideas to make things extra large, or extra tiny.

This time I went extra large with the hexagons.  They eat up fabric like nobodys business {perfect for a scrap quilt!} and because they are so big, they are easy to sew.

What else is 5″ in size?  That’s right a charm pack!  A few years ago my quilting group even did a nickle or 5″ square swap.  I am over run with that size it seams like.

This is the largest size I have sewn hexagons.  I have done a few others at slightly smaller- around 3″ or so, but these are seriously mongo.  But not in a scarry way.  Using this size quickly fills up the center of a quilt top– or a quilt block for that matter!

I had sewn together a little baby hexegon quilt –using a charm pack + a few pieces.  For this project I didn’t sew anything by hand, it was all sewn with machine and a satin stitch or zig zag stitch along the outside edges.  Super Simple!

Grab a pile of 5″ fabric squares and sew yourself an extra large hexagon quilt! This baby sized quilt is perfect for beginners. No hand sewing required. All applique is machine sewn.  You can use matching thread, invisible thread, or go for an all over white or black.  It does take a little bit of sewing time, but will be quicker than if sewn by hand!

The first border is a piping border {without the inside rope}.  It lays flat, but gives a little pop and stop to the border.   Finished size is 28″ X 34″  Just big enough to snuggle in.

Included in the pattern:
* Diagrams for steps
* Easy to follow instructions
* Full size printable template for hexagon
