Crown (1/3 Hexagon) Paper Pieces
1/3 Hexies, sometimes known as crowns, are a versatile shape that plays well with kites and hexagons, or diamonds, like in the picture. They're often a feature in the Rose Star block, and also border a hexagon of the same side length, making them the perfect scrap quilt alternative to the ordinary hexagon.
For perhaps over 400 years, English Paper Piecing has been used to make beautiful, heirloom quilts. It’s meditative, portable, simple, and perfect for fabric scraps or fussy cutting.
All of 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.
Crowns are measured along the longest edge. Three 2" Crowns go together to make a 2" hexagon. The shapes in the first picture are 3" Crowns, and the remaining pictures have 2" Crowns.
