Hexagon Star Burst Tutorial

When I was working on my friend Shanna’s Stripper Row, I knew it had to be triangles but I wanted to include some hexagons. I found the 6 Pointed Star in the Electric Quilt Block Library and decided to switch out the center six 60⁰ triangles for a hexagon.

Here is the finished block, this was assembled using the Hex N More Ruler:

Using your Hex N More Ruler cut the following pieces (Note: I am not demonstrating how to cut the individual pieces, the ruler instructions do an excellent job of that):

For the 4 white sections, cut 8” x 3.5” white pieces and then use the 60⁰ triangle to cut on edge of each piece at a 60⁰ angle.

I fussy cut the center hexagon block.  Take you white hexagon and cut it in half on the flat edges. Do not cut point to point.

Sew first triangle on one of the white sections as pictured.

Sew first triangle to center hexagon. Line up as pictured in the picture below.

Press triangle away from the hexagon as pictured below.

Line up your sections below as pictured.

Pin and sew with a ¼” seam.

Press to the side.

Attach other side in the same manner.

Next assemble the top and bottom sections following the picture sequence below.

Trim the block down to 12.5” x 12.5”

There you have it, how to assemble the gorgeous block above.  I hope you have fun playing with the Hex N More Ruler, which you can purchase from my wonderful sponsor, Quilting Lodge.

Also, if you are wondering where I have been the last week, come back tomorrow and I will explain the saga that was last week. On the upside it has a happy ending but it sure was a ROUGH one.
