Kite Paper Pieces
Kites! They're 1/6 of a hexagon but split through the flat sides rather than the corners, making the most interesting and beautiful fussy cut designs. Kites are measured along the short sides. Six 1" kites go together to make a 2" hexagon.
Kites are the base shape for the lovely Rose Star block, and make funky triangles if all the short sides point in. They are also used in the Waterwheel quilt with Equilateral Triangles.
- The hexagon in the 1st photo is made from 2" Kites.
- The kites in photo 2 are 1 1/5" and matched with 3" Crowns.
- Photo 3 shows my Ice-Cream Soda quilt in progress. It has 1" 6-point Diamonds, 1" Kites, and 2" Crowns.
Kite acrylic templates can be found here.
All our paper pieces are laser cut for accuracy from high-quality 100% post-consumer, recycled paper, and packaged in recycled and recyclable packaging. The quantities in each packet are determined by the most efficient way to cut a large sheet of paper. All shapes are cut in our workshop in Castlemaine, Australia.
