    Question MSQC Half Hexi template accuracy?

    When I was using the half hexi template to cut out pieces for my hexi gem quilt, I noticed the template seemed to be wider than my 5" charm pack squares.

    I compared the hexi template to the markings on my cutting mat and omnigrid rulers and it actually measures 5 1/8" wide. Is everyone else's template like that?

    It's not a huge deal for the Hexi Gem project since it is just for simple applique, but I worry that 1/8" would be enough to throw off accuracy for making a pieced half hexagon project, like the Floating Hexagons quilt. Here's some photos to show the actual width of the template:

    My half hexi template is just under the 5-1/8" mark.

    They are all like that. Originally made for the jelly roll strips, the half hexie is a tiny bit wider than the charm packs, but centered it doesn't make any difference when sewing it together as the little on each side is in the seam allowance.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Awesome! I didn't know they were originally designed for jelly roll strips. Good to know it won't affect piecing.
