So far, I have re-cut my hexies to 1", a total of 529 hexies. Now it is time to punch a hole on them.  I have cut some Asian print fabrics into 2.5 squares.

Darlene, I love your red/white quilt.   I just may 'steal' that idea and do something similar.  I would might get it done before my 100th birthday if I do something more like that.  Rather than trying to do a whole quilt with hexies. 8-)

Rosarita, I too punch a hole in the middle when I cut my own hexis. It makes it so much easier to get them out and I don't stitch through the paper. Just baste the fabric.

Darlene, I love the way you did the border on this red and white quilt.  

I am re-cutting the paper templates I bought from Paper Pieces and have been saving the magazine inserts for future use.  GF use file folders from dollar stores and she put a punch hole in the middle of the paper, so she can easily pop it out with a crochet hook.  So I am putting a hole on mine too.

Oh so beautiful Darlene

I have the accu quilt die cutter and they just came out with a die for 1-1/2 inch hexies it cuts the papers on one half and the fabric on the other half and you can actually use old business cards for the paper pieces. So when you run the die through the machine it cuts both the fabric and papers. I have not tried it yet but the video sure made it look nice so I picked one up at the wholesale house. The reply cards would also work.

Thanks, Leah.  The picture shows one of the larger hexagon flowers as being quite light but really it is not .  Must be the way the light hit it.  I did not notice it in the original picture.

Darlene your quilt is very pretty.

Comment by Darlene Bass/Northern Alberta on Thursday

Several months ago I shared that I was making red and white hexagons to make this quilt top.  I finally have the top finished.

Comment by leah anderson on Thursday

I also use the post cards that come in magazines. They seem to work great for me. I also found that the paper rolls in wrapping paper works well too.
