More Fun with Hexies and Diamonds

Last fall, we took a look at the interesting relationship between hexies and diamonds. Since they both share 60-degree angles, the two shapes can fit together in a variety of ways. I had some fun last week making some sample blocks using these two versatile shapes – check them out!

Block 1

To make this block, you will need:

  • 3 hexies
  • 3 diamonds
And look what happens when this block is put together with others!

Block 14

To make this block, you will need:

  • 7 hexagons
  • 6 diamonds cut in half to make 12 triangles

Block 35

To make this block, you will need:

  • 12 diamonds

Block 37

To make this block, you will need:

  • 1 full hexagon
  • 1 hexagon cut in half horizontally
  • 6 diamonds

Block 41

To make this block, you will need:

  • 5 full hexagons
  • 2 hexagons cut in half horizontally
  • 4 full diamonds
  • 2 diamonds cut in half to make triangles

Block 47

To make this block, you will need:

  • 10 full diamonds
  • 2 diamonds cut in half to make triangles
One-inch hexagons and diamonds are available in precut iron-on interfacing, which helps the blocks go together quickly and accurately.
