I have had this half hexie ruler from Missouri Star Quilt Company and have wanted to give it a try but didn't want to commit to a big quilt in case I didn't enjoy the piecing. I have to say it was the easy way to go doing hexies. I loved it and think I may venture onto something larger latter. I just designed the pattern on graph paper, but cut the hexies and then arranged them a couple of different ways and settled on a traditional design in the end.
I had scheduled this to post Monday but I am guessing I didn't do it right.
