That would be the Hex N More ruler by Julie Herman at Jaybird Quilts. I don't buy specialty rulers often/ever but I couldn't resist this one. I used it to make the quilt below for a great-neice for Christmas. This little girl is 6 (or 7?) and I think it's perfect! Nice for her now but graphic enough to grow up with her.
(NOTE: be sure to read all the way to the end of this post...)
I used the Bubbly Circles fabric with the solids. It goes with everything and the texture is nice.
This is a variation of a pattern from Jaybird Quilts called Science Fair. I cut my strips wider (2 3/4") and I added simple applique in the center of most of the big hexes. I may need to make this more than once - the pattern is fast, graphic, and full of different design possibilities.
I've ordered the two patterns below to go with the Hex N More Ruler that is already on the Piece O' Cake site. The patterns should be here in a couple of weeks.
I think both of these quilt patterns are interesting on their own - but either would be good with some applique! Maybe a little, maybe a lot of applique...
I only used most of the 'darker' hexes in the quilt I made and I have no plan in mind for the remaining light hexes so I'm raffling them off. If you would like them, leave a comment on this post. I'll do a randomized drawing Monday morning. Here's what might be yours:
