Jaybird Quilts Hex N More Ruler Video Tutorial by Julie Herman

I'm so excited to share my new video ruler tutorials with you this month! Today I have the Hex N More video tutorial for you. Over the next few weeks I'll have a new tutorial on each ruler for you each week.

In this video tutorial I demonstrate how to cut shapes from fabric strips with the Hex N More ruler. Learn how to cut Hexagons, Half Hexagons, Triangles and Jewels. You can cut each shape in four different sizes using the Hex N More ruler. I review how to cut shapes for right and left-handed sewists and quilters in the video.

All shapes are rotary cut from fabric strips.
Cut a strip and then cut the desired shape or shapes from the strip.
A 1/4" seam allowance is included on each shape of all of the rulers.
The Hex N More ruler cuts 4 shapes in 4 sizes. The Hex N More ruler can be used in place of the Mini Hex N More ruler.

The Jaybird Quilts family of rulers include the Hex N More, Sidekick, Mini Hex N More and Super Sidekick rulers. All Hex N More and Sidekick rulers can work together or alone. The shapes and sizes cut from each ruler can work together to make unique and interesting designs. The Hex N More, Sidekick & Super Sidekick rulers are packaged with full color directions, including cutting and piecing diagrams. 

Jaybird Quilts patterns that use the Hex N More ruler include Gravity, Park Bench, Toes in the Sand, Delight, Disco, Day Break, Science Fair, Tiny Dancer, Snack Time, Wonton, Lotus, Northern Lights, Tasty, Jawbreaker and Candy Dish. Most Jaybird Quilts quilt patterns include size options that range from baby, lap, twin, full, queen and king size quilts. Patterns for throw pillows and table runners or table toppers are also available. All patterns are full color and include detailed cutting diagrams and templates, directions for assembling blocks and finishing directions.

Quilts featured in this video include Delight in Moonshine by Tula Pink for Free Spirit and Snack Time in Kona Cotton by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Both quilts are pieced by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts and are quilted by Angela Walters of Quilting is My Therapy.

I love the quilt and am taking a class on it in August. Will you post the fabrics used for blocks 8 and 9? The list for the other blocks is very helpful if we are unable to find the fabrics as a kit.
