I used free templates from http://moxyideas.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/moxyideas_1.5in_hex.pdf that I printed out on card stock. I also punched a hole in the template as was suggested by http://mythreesonsknit.blogspot.com/2010/05/hexagons-beginning.html. I then used this tutorialhttp://sunshinescreations.vintagethreads.com/2007/03/tutorial-on-english-paper-piecing.html for completing the hexagons. I have only made the start of a flower so far, but I plan to do more. I love that this is a great way to use scraps, a great way to fussy cut material into easy shapes, and something that I can easily take with me or sit in front of the TV and complete. Thanks to my friend at goddessinprogressblog.com/quilts/, I now have a new craft project to work on (not that I needed one, but it is nice to have one that is mobile).
I can't wait to make more hexies. I can't wait to sew more!
