Amazon_Warrior, I've never heard of Inkscapes, so I'll have to check it out. I can imagine getting lost in the design process!

And, alwaysinmyroom, my cutting template is for 1" hexies, but I have a whole set of templates for "The New Hexagon" that I haven't opened (I was worried I'd lose one), but it has 3 hexagon sizes, plus 29 other shapes Smiley So, if I have the right size template, I'd be happy to cut hexagons for you!

craftADDchick - It's got a bit of a learning curve, but is worth playing with.  The best thing I ever found out about (for drawing quilt blocks) are the different grid types that can be found under Document Properties.  Smiley  For hexies (and other things with 30 or 60 degree angles) the axonometric grid is brilliant.

Here's one I doodled earlier:

Oh, wow! That's pretty cool looking! I'll definitely have to give that a try once my internet is back up. I can't download it to my computer until my internet is fixed Sad

Thanks to a random suggestion from a friend, I now know what I'd ask for.  Smiley  Expect a completed questionnaire soonish!  Wink

When cutting out, I cut the fabric into 2.5" squares, then tape a paper template to my quilting ruler and keep turning it to cut down to the right size for hexies.

*reads cutting tips with interest*

As an utter EPP n00b, I was kind of planning to start basting squares to templates and trim the excess afterwards, unless that doesn't work?  Huh

That is how I do it...I baste then trim and then iron the heck out of it...I am afraid that if I cut out a hexie shape, I would not be able to evenly center the cardboard piece and then end up with one tiny fold under....my seams are almost the same size...I better go read the instructions that came with the templates...

Yeah, I'd be worried about my shape not fitting the template if I cut out hexagons first.
