I’ve created a couple PDFs for your crafting pleasure. I love English paper piecing, but I hate tracing hexagons, so I’ve made a printable sheets of 3/4″ and 1″ hexagons a bunch of stuff. When you print them, I recommend card stock, this way you can use the shapes again and again. I store my cut hexagons in ziplocks with the size written in sharpie.

The size of the hexagons is determined by measuring one side – that’s the way they’re measured in standard quilting patterns.

When you cut out the shapes, cut right inside the lines. There are tons of patterns out there using hexagons…Grandma’s Garden type patterns. Have fun!

The PDF sheets are free, but I hope you’ll leave me a comment if you use them. I’d love to see pictures – I hope you’ll link to me if you post any photos of your work!

Updated, after making lots of hexagons: I prefer to just trace a hex onto the back of my fabric, pin my hexes together and join them with a running stitch. Super easy and my stitches never show. Also saves all the work of sewing the paper into the hex first, before sewing the hexes together. I’ve written a tutorial for piecing hexies without paper here. There’s also a great tutorial at Sunshine’s Creations for English paper piecing. Whichever method you choose, have a ball! And share pictures!

One other update: Some people have reported back that they bought some pre-cut templates and the size didn’t quite match up to mine. I apologize for any trouble this might cause. I’m an imperfect quilter and no mathematician  From my printer, the hexies work fine. But just a heads up – I’m not making any guarantees about size perfection! (That’s why they’re free :)) Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks, Abi

  1. Thank you so much for the templates. I’m looking forward to using them to make my first paper pieced table runner. Was looking for some in the store today and wasn’t very successful. This will save me time looking for them when I can be home sewing.

    Thanks again

  2. Hi, Thanks very much for the templates. Question. If I’m using the 1 inch template how large should my square of fabric be? I’ve purchased 2 1/2 inch squares and wondering if these are really large enough. I’ve made one hex so far and not sure the square is actually large enough.
