Vilma, I had some from a swap that were glued rather than tacked (they should have been tacked, as the instructions) and I had problems getting the papers out.  Maybe the ladies used the wrong sort of glue.  I found that when I did manage to get the papers out, the fabric frayed like mad.

Pat,  I am like you.  I am cutting mine now.  I plan to use fabric glue instead of basting them for speed.

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.

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!

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!

The measurement is usually based upon one side of the hexie.
Comment by Patricia4 on July 29, 2014 at 9:27am

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.
