Hexagon Update & Tips : Part 1

Several Bloggers have asked about my hexagons.

I am flattered that you guys enjoy seeing them

because sometimes I feel like I will never

finish this project!


For those of you that have asked,

here are the templates that I use:


And "YES"  I did order 600 pieces!

It seems like a lot, but in the end I will wind up

using all of them.

On my last update  I had used 427 hexagons.



There are so many  awesome tutorial out there

about hexagons.

Here are some of  my favorites:





So this is my hexagon tip:

Use your punch holder to make a hole in

the center of each paper piece.



This really helps out when you are trying to remove the

paper piece.
Simply slide a pencil or the end of your scissors

into the hole.

Lift to remove the paper piece.



This paper piece is now ready for re-use on another hexagon.

I hope that this helps out!


Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting!
