I used to buy mine from Paper Pieces - I use the 1" ones - but then I bought a Sissix machine and the hexagon die and now I cut my own and for some friends.

Comment by Amanda Best yesterday

I thought of cutting my own templates, but I knew I would never stick with it so I bought the large size bag from paper pieces! 


Comment by Vilma/AR yesterday

Amanda, I was thinking of doing 3/4" hexie for this project I am doing now.  But I chicken out and choose 1" hexie.  I am cutting my paper template with Fiskar template cutter.  My GF told me about it and I got one.  Now I can make as many as I want.  I saved the paper templates from the last project and re-cut them.

I am making the 3/4 inch hexagons in the traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden pattern. I have not made progress on it in so long, maybe someday!

Marge, your quilt is absolutely stunning!!!

Thank you Tanyel!

Comment by Tanyel B on Tuesday
The measurement is usually based upon one side of the hexie.
Comment by Patricia4 on Tuesday

Newbie question.  When you say 1" hexies - does that mean 1" across one side?  Or top to bottom - or point to point - where is the 1" measurement?

Marge, I just saw where Bonnie Hunter posted a copy of your quilt on her Facebook page.

Comment by Janet/MO on Monday

Welcome Annette. 

Vilma, I'm making 1" hexies too.  I figure this might be a way to finally use up some of my scraps that are taking up way too much room. 

Marge, you must have been seeing hexies in your sleep to make a queen sized out of 1/2" ones.  Whew, that is a lot of hexies!

Comment by Vilma/AR on Monday

I worked on my 1" hexies while on the road last week.  I have a long way to go on my project.

Janet,  what size is your hexies?  If it is 1" ,  I could use some.   :)

Welcome,  Annette.  Post some of your projects.
