I’ve had a number of questions this week about my scrappy Hexie quilt. I do not use English Paper Piecing for hexies. I tried it once and didn’t care for it. Shocking, I know! Anyway, I piece mine as you would any hand pieced block. I cut my hexies using my die cutter, use a pencil and small ruler to mark the seams, pin, and piece. No papers!.
You may notice that this die is marked Accucut and not Accuquilt. It is the same company but they made die cutters for educational purposes long before they marketed them to quilters. Accucut dies will work in my studio cutter. If you have any questions regarding die compatibility, contact them. They are very friendly and helpful.i bought this die because it was on sale at the time and the size I wanted.
I have also machine pieced these and wrote up a tutorial for that here.
