Long Hexagons are Hexagons that have been stretched in length only and have kept the characteristic internal angles of the original Hexagon shape. They are great in Scrap-Quilts that use as many different fabrics as possible.
We measure the size of our Long Hexagon shapes by the length of the LONG edge and they are available as paper pieces in 3 sizes:
- 1 inch (2.5 cm) on the LONG side (0.5 in on the short side)
- 2 inch (2.5 cm) on the LONG side (0.75 in on the short side)
- 2 inch (5.1 cm) on the LONG side (1 in on the short side)
We also have acrylic templates matching the paper pieces. Please note that the 1 in acrylic has a 1/4″ seam allowance, while the acrylic for the larger 2 in size has a more generous 3/8th” seam allowance.
