Yesterday while searching for hexie templates, I stumbled upon this awesome hexagon generator! Just type in your dimensions and this free online program will produce a PDF for you instantly! No more searching for the perfect pre-made template, just generate your own, you can even select your line colour! When you print your templates, make sure your printer software doesn’t resize the image to fit the page or your template won’t be accurate. FYI, I checked off the “Put a dot in the middle of each hexagon” box but the dot didn’t print.
You can also generate custom squares, triangles and octagons, circular and polar patterns, bricks, asymetric and specialty and notepaper.You can create your own custom circular quilting pattern without having to do the math!
Check out this tumbling block generator, I’m sure you could create all kinds of templates with this!
On a less cheery note, I phoned Fabric.com yesterday about the order I placed on Friday, July 8th. Unfortunately, despite paying $25.00 in shipping charges, it *might* be sent by mail and will take anywhere from 7 to 14 days to get to me. Orders are shipped via UPS within 24 hours in the U.S. but to Canada, you don’t have a choice, they determine whether your order is shipped with UPS or USPS and not within 24 hours. I am not impressed and will think twice before placing another order with them.
