eyeramona I haz no idea what I'm doing .... #epp #englishpaperpiecing Anyone know what size paper I need? Anyone have some the right size? I prolly shouldn't of bought these tiny little buggers with no papers. These are 2 and 1/4 wide. #quilt #hexi #hexis #hexagonpeoblems #sewingproblems I'm incapable of hoofing it. #sewallthethings I'm gonna hexi something someday. 2d
  •   ah_tiv_eah Measure the length of one edge. It looks like you should need a one inch hexie paper template. 2d
  •   ah_tiv_eah Yup. 1 inch hexagon paper template. :) 2d
  •   eyeramona Ok great! Thanks so much! @ah_tiv_eah 2d
  •   ah_tiv_eah You're very welcome! I have precut hexies of bumble just like yours. I measured mine and it measures the same as yours. You can use a 1 inch hexie template or smaller. If you use the 1 inch template, you are going to have a *very scant* seam allowance. Still manageable by hand piecing. Just make sure you center the template well before you baste it. If you have any questions, let me know. 2d
  •   eyeramona Ah ok super. I looked at a couple pics that help. So I can print the 1 inch hexi on cardstock I didn't want to hand cut a bunch of hexis. I should probably just buy the die cut. Thanks so much for the centering tip. Those are the buggering kinds of things that get my panties in a bunch. @ah_tiv_eah 2d
  •   ah_tiv_eah I bought the XL hexie paper punch on amazon for around $16 (I think). That makes it a breeze. :) I'll find a picture of the hexie punch I use, post it on here, and tag ya. 2d

kdarli I've finished making all my hexies and there is more than would fit in my storage box too! Now it's on to sewing them together. Storage box idea is inspired by @sallyanneness :)

kdarli It's a bit annoying when you run out of hexi templates while your making hexies, but I think I should now have enough for the rest of the hexies I need to make up, at least in this batch
