After showing that I have caught the bug of Hexagon quilt and even did a quick tutorial, I have thought and thought that it wasn’t that easy to find myself printable hexagon templates! I don’t know about you, but when I have a thought in my head I better be able to find what I need lickety-split or it aint happening!
I had attempted to go with the graph paper option, and tracing out my own shapes…but I just don’t have time for that. I also could have ran to the store and picked up some super fancy packaged hexagons…but who am I kidding? I don’t like to spend money on things like that. So, what’s a girl to do? Of course make her own!
Quick hint with the templates
* print off on cardstock paper if you have it around. The thicker paper allows you to use the template more than once and can handle the folding of the fabric along the edge and a few needle holes.
* write in pencil what you are using that piece for. If you have a specific pattern in mind and need 4 outside red and 1 inside yellow, then label the template so you can keep track of what goes where. It even helps when you are sewing them together.
