This inventive, quilt block pattern can be used to make surprising log cabin quilt variations. In the Hexing Around Block, you'll start with a hexagon and then piece strips around it in a log cabin fashion until you have created a much larger hexagon. A white background pieced around the hexagon allows you to use this block in any block quilt. If you are looking to make a modern and geometric quilt, free quilt block patterns like this surprising log cabin quilt block pattern will easily add a trendy look to your traditional ideas.

Hi everyone! There appears to be some confusion about this project. There is a printable hexagon template located on the blogger's site. You will need to click to her blog to download the hexagon template. She then lists step-by-step instructions for creating this quilt block. Hope this clears up any confusion! - Editor, FaveQuilts.com

Please make the instructions printable.

Hi cjraymes! We cannot make the instructions printable as we do not own this project. It is owned by the Freshly Pieced blog. However, you can click to her site and print the hexagon template, as well as print off her instructions. Thanks! - Editor, FaveQuilts.com

How do I get the pattern so I can make it? I think I need a template to start. WHERE do I find it? Where are the 'free' directions?

Hi cakanaw 9411056, Right below the "Difficulty Level" there is green text that says "Click Here for Quilt Project." If you click that link, it will take you to the pattern instructions. Happy quilting!
