About this Quilt

Finished Size : 70" x 80"

Rating : Intermediate

Designed By : Kacia Hosmer

Puzzles are a fascinating example of how people of all ages love to work things out and come up with creative solutions. This quilt caught the eye of our editorial team immediately with its simple yet effective use of negative space and color placement created by pieced hexagon blocks. How did she do it? You’ll have to try this fun project and “puzzle it out” for yourself… but here’s a hint. Since a hexagon can be created by piecing together six equilateral triangles, why not split one of those triangles and add some negative space?

Sometimes design inspiration comes when you least expect it – as when quilter Kacia Hosmer saw some interesting tile work in a public space and decided to recreate it in a quilt. This is the perfect project for that 20-piece collection of fat quarters you’ve been saving. Prints and patterns just pop off the white background!
