This page is dedicated to keeping a list of blog posts that I've made regarding the making of Hexified Panel Quilts, as well as tips on cutting and assembling the units. These pages should be helpful to all of those making OBWs, Hexified Panel Quilts, as well as possibly for those making Stack & Whacks.
As more posts are written that pertain to Hexified Panel Quilts and OBWs, direct links will be added here so they can all be found together.
A Gypsy Dreamer Quilts YouTube channel has recently been created. There are videos related specifically to making Hexified Panel Quilts and OBWs, some videos on basic quilting instructions, instructional videos for those who free motion quilt on sit-down quilters, and videos related to a Saturday Sampler BOM that I'm hosting at my local quilt shop, Quilters' Paradise, in Baldwin City, Kansas. Feel free to browse through and watch!
