Hexa-Tris Quilt Block // June 2017

Let the Kona fun begin! The Kona Fabric Club bundles for June 2017 have shipped!

This Month's Kona Colors

This month's fabric selections are from the purple color family, Kona Cotton in Tulip, Heliotrope, Wisteria, and Orchid. These selections of purples have a warmer magenta hue in them and would pair beautifully with warmer neutrals like Kona Cotton in Ivory. 

Purple Inspiration

Here are some beautiful, inspiring pictures I came across on Pinterest that are sure to get you in the mood for some monochromatic purple sewing!

This Month's Quilt Block

This month's block is called Hexa-Tris, like Tetris but with hexagonal shapes! This block uses turned-edge applique and comes together pretty quickly. It finishes at 6" x 12". You can view and download the PDF version of the pattern and templates below.
