    Default Smaller half hexagon

    Unless I missed it, MSQ doesn't make a half hexagon for 2.5" strips. That would be great. I'd like to make a flower garden quilt that's closer in size to the traditional ones, but love the idea of not messing with the tedious piecing the original octagons required.

    It's been out for like 5 years or more. One of M*'s first templates.

    I'm glad you linked that! I was pretty sure they had half-hexi templates in all the standard pre-cut sizes.

    I just moved mine off the sewing table a few days ago. Then I had to stop and think if it was for a jelly roll strip, as I hadn't been using it for that.

    Their half hexi template can be used for any precut. I just put together Jenny's quilt ( tutorial from a week ago) using that template using 2-1/2" strips. Jenny cut up a layer cake into 5" squares to cut her hexi from, that got my interest up to try this with a jelly roll I was wanting to build a quilt with. It isn't tiny like paper pieced/EPP hexis, but it is as small as I want to work with. I need to put borders on mine and quilt it, I think it is going to make a great looking quilt!
