Five Hexagon Templates From Lovepatchworkandquilting.com

 Click below and print at 100% (I would verify by printing one page and measuring one side) five different hexie sizes. Remember, the hexie size is measured on one side.

They measure 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4" and 2". I've used 110 lb. card stock purchased at Staples to print off my copies.

Happy Hexagon Trivet Tutorial from A Quilter's Table

 Won't these make fantastic gifts?


Hexagon Star Mug Rug From The Blue Chair

 What is a mug rug? Well, it's larger than a coaster but smaller than a place mat. Perfect size for a cup of java and a treat! You can whip up this mug rug in no time.

For gift, add a matching mug, tea bags/and or coffee and perhaps a small package of cookies for a special someone.
