How do YOU quilt your hexies?

I know most traditional hexie quilts are hand quilted. I've quilted mine using free-motion-quilting with my domestic machine and I've also used French Knots too.  I've just finished a top and am…Continue

I saw a tutorial about making Hexies and making a bag to put your hexie pieces in, Loved it, and have started sitting in my chair in the evenings and making HEXIES!  <3Continue

Pepper, you may recall me as Dolly in your Paducah class; we are delighted you've joined us.
Think we can notify other gals from your KY class? I wish now I'd asked for their names and e-mails but I was super saturated with all I'd learned in your BIG HEXIE class I forgot.

I'm so pleased to have us all in one place; I have been asked for a link to our group.
Think the only way to get started would be to go through the process of joining HEXIE lovers ... Then you can sign in later.

my%20pcs%20006.jpg  This is how I started making hexie quilts .  These blocks were made by my grandmother in the 1930's or 40's .  They were in her cedar chest . I asked her if I could finish it and she showed me how to sew them together .  She passed away in 1982 and the quilt wasn't finished until 2000 .  I still have it , stains and all .  Annie

Hello Ladies and Gents,

Is there a set way to measure a hexagon template. I have seen it measured two ways:  from the side or from one point to the opposite point? My neighbour (Maxine) and I are frustrated by the differing ways of measurement and are wondering which is the accurate way to measure a hexagon.

The reason for my question is that Maxine is currently getting her fabrics and templates together to make another hexie quilt and we both have been frustrated by the correct template sizing for her pattern. You see she found a pattern for a quilt which we both love at the local library and photocopied it.  The unfortunately part of the pattern which showed the actual template picture/sizing was no longer with the magazine.  We made attempts to get the pattern from the actual magazine but the magazine did not call us back nor email us with the correct answer.  So after many searches of the internet I've come to you for help.

I too would like to make the same quilt eventually, although I want to use a 1 inch hexie ( when the template is measured from one point to the other) making my template very small. Maxine is using the opposite which is 1 inch hexie but the measurement is from the side thus making her template almost double in size from my template. Hence we are both confused when it comes to Hexie accuracy or is their such a term??????   Any help will be greatly appreciated. Julie

Diane Gambrell, i saw a post on the FB hexie group that you started this group. It made me remember that I am a member of AQS. Can I hand piece or do es it need to be EPP?
