Time to complete a project is crucial for crafters like us that has so many craft projects in our to-do list. The sooner the time to complete one the better, so we can do as many projects as we can before the list becomes enormously long. Sadly but true, with the hectic lifestyle in today’s world, we no longer have the luxury to spend time on a hobby. And, it is not surprising to know the modern world has been struggled between time spend on hobby versus time spend to earn a living. I am in the same shoes as I need to earn a living with my hands and creativities with the shortest time possible. And, I do not compromise the quality of my work with a lesser time.

In this quick hexagon quilt block tutorial, you will need a sewing machine and some amount of freezer paper. I know that some experience quilters never use freezer paper, they just cut and stitch with a sewing machine, yes, only if you are experienced enough or you quilt block it big, you may omit the freezer paper. However, I find that freezer paper that sticks to the back side of the fabric makes the hexagon-shape fabric so stable that it is easy to align and stitch, not to mention that it prevents the fraying takes place at the raw edges as well. Invest in the freezer paper is worth the money to make things easier and create a more perfect project.
In order to make the whole project even faster for you, the hexagon template (with seam allowance) of sizes of 1, 1.5 and 2 inches has been prepared for you to download and print. If you are not happy with the way I aligned them, you can always download the png artwork of these sizes and align it with a word processor software. You may resize the template a little but not recommended for over 10% change in sizes for each size.
I got a little too excited with this method and was carried away by the fantasy of repeating the process. Therefore, I ended up with lots of hexies to make 3 projects. Hexies make me happy!
