I recently purchased a large & small half-hexi template from the Missouri Star Quilt Company (one of my favorite online shops!). Well, I have this closet full (OK, it's over-full) of fabric. Chose some flannel & one piece of cotton, prewashed the fabric (I don't always prewash), and decided to use the large half hexi to make a friendship braid. It went together very quickly. Decided what size of sashing & borders I wanted to use and ended up with this fun 65" x 81" quilt. I have enough half-hexi pieces cut out of the same fabrics to make a hexi quilt. The pieces are ready to sew together. I love these templates! I was able to cut out 4.75" strips of fabric & used the template by alternating position of the template after each cut. The smaller half-hexi template will fit on jelly roll strips (2 1/2" strips). I just happen to have a full bag of strips cut from leftover fabric of past projects.
I am actually going to list this quilt for sale at $125. So if you are interested, send a message.
Hope everyone else is having fun with their hobby too!
