Details of swap:

Are you an EPP junkie? Does the sight of neat little stacks of stitched up hexagons make you smile with delight? Do you have dreams of making a quilt with hundreds of hexies? Could you use a bit more variety in your hexie stash? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the swap for you!

In this swap, you will be exchanging 24 squares of quality, 100% quilting cotton with up to each member of the swap. This may mean that you will have to send out of your country, but fabric squares are small and light, so postage should be lower. You may also have the option to swap finished hexies and/or a small item made with hexies (such as a pincushion, mug rug, etc.).

What size squares do you need?

The size of the hexagon is determined by the length of one side. So, a 1" hexie has sides that measure 1" each. To determine the size of the square you need, refer to the information below.

1/4" hexie = 1" square
1/2" hexie = 1 1/2" square
3/4" hexie = 2" square
1" hexie = 2 1/2" square
1 1/4" hexie = 3" square
1 1/2" hexie = 3 1/2" square
2" hexie = 4 1/2" square
3" hexie = 6 1/2" square

So, it seems like the formula for the size of the square is: 2X the side length  plus a 1/2".

So, a 2 1/2" hexie would need a 5 1/2" square (2 1/2" X 2= 5", plus 1/2"= 5 1/2")


Note: If you need larger squares, but are partnered with someone who needs much smaller squares, you may want to consider sending your partner a few extra squares Smiley

What do I need to know about sending finished hexies?

A finished hexie is one that has already been stitched into the hexagon shape. When sending finished hexies, please adhere to the following guidelines:
1. Please use card stock (or index cards) to make your templates so your partner can reuse them.
2. Please punch a hole in the center of the template to make them easier to remove.
3. Please be sure that your template is the correct size for your partner. Remember that a hexie's size is determined by the length of one side.
4. Please leave the template in the hexies when you mail them.
5. Please check with your partner to see if they would like you to stitch through the template to the front along the sides of the hexagon. (While this can hold the template in place, especially for larger hexies, some people don't remove the basting from the hexies. It can also reduce the number of times the template can be reused.)
6. If you plan to use glue to help to hold the template in place, please check with your partner first. Also, please make sure to use a glue stick that is specifically for use with fabric.


What can I make with my hexies?

Well, if you don't want to make a quilt, I've started a board on Pinterest with some ideas for smaller projects. Check it out here: http://pin.it/pB0s5aT



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

I'm running 2 swaps so, to make sure I don't make any goofs and sign you up for the wrong swap, I'll sign up the first batch of swappers tomorrow. I need to head to bed Smiley

Ok ladies ya'll made me into an addict with this last swap.  When was it? THis past August maybe?  I had never made a hexie but had always wanted to and to date have made 2431 1 inch hexies for me.  Anyone who was in that swap may remember I was inspired to make a quilt.  Not only have I made all of them but have joined all but 5  what I call flowers with each flower using 19 hexies.  Once those are made I have then used black hexies to go around them which takes 18 for each.  I have two rows totally connected and only 612 more black hexies to cut and stitch around my flowers.  Then to join the  rest to my two rows.  I will try to post a few photos here just to show ya'll  my progress.

I may just join so that I can make 2 pillow shams..... to go with my king size quilt!

And, in the last round, I bought fabric that represented my region/state (New England/Massachusetts), but I totally forgot to cut it up and send it, and I think I have fabric to represent the town I work in (I can't remember how much I bought). So, I think I'll be including at least 1 "special" hexie for everyone Smiley
