"Prince Charming" Double Hexie Pillows
this tutorial from Kerri and from this pattern by Jaybird Quilts.
Be sure if you try it that you are using a 60-degree equilateral triangle template. Yes, I made a huge mistake and had to re-cut all the triangles. Boo. It was a lot of extra work, but the pillow turned out OK in the end. In fact, I kind of like the fact that the inside hexagon is smaller than the outside, but it wasn't planned that way. LOL
I had a couple of blocks left over so for the "extra" item, I made this little hexi-ish scrap basket. If I was to do it again, I would make the inserts more rectangular than triangular, and make it a little bigger. It is a mere 5-inches in diameter, so it is small, but deep. Still, it would work very well in my sewing space, which is very cramped (to say the least).
