  • Large hexagon quilting templates where to find them

    I'm looking for the plastic hexagon template for the larger hexagon size ie bigger than 5 inches.

    The only one's I can find are in Australia but of course postage is not cheap so does any one know where to obtain them in the UK?

      You can make your own if you have a smaller, accurate one. Just draw round it on large paper, then draw with a ruller across from opposing points taking the line out as far as you need it both sides. do this for all points then using the same see through ruller you can draw the hexigon sides on accurately by still using the small one as a guide, You can buy the plastic cheap enough and by using your paper pattern then transfer it to the plastic.

        I've made them in the past but the card/paper ones never stay neat and sharpe edged even if I only use them to draw around onto the fabric.

        To get a clean cut on plastic/perplex you really require a lazer cutter otherwise you get a slight rough edge which is not good enough to use with a rotory cutter. If you try to smooth off the cuts you end up losing mm of the hexagon and that causes slightly uneaven edges which means the hexagons will not match up completely.
