Big On Tradition

Don't be fooled by the hexagon (six-sided) shapes that bounce across the surface of this 1930s reproduction-print throw. (We used Darlene Zimmerman's Garden Party and Little Darlings 6 for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.) The quickly pieced rows are made up of a single, four-sided trapezoid pattern. Match the pattern pieces to make hexagons magically appear.

The Trick to Trapezoids
Afraid of geometry? Don’t let the term "trapezoid" scare you away from making this easy-to-sew quilt. We’ve taken all the math out. Simply copy the pattern piece, cut out the pieces, and stitch them together.
