I haven't actually made a hexie quilt yet, but I have used this die for scrap management. When I finish a project I cut the leftover scraps into squares and hexagons and store in stacks! So, someday soon I will have enough to start a scrappy hexie quilt!! Love it!

I used the 3" die to cut out a king size quilt. It was so fast to cut the hexagons - I never would have been able to piece it together in a years time without the hexagon die. I need to figure out how to finish a border on it so I can finish it. My "to do" project for this year.

I love this set! I use it for English Paper peicing. The smallest hexie, I use for cutting wax paper. It fits perfectly into the middle size hexie, which I use for the fabric. It really saves me a lot of time and the cuts are absolutely perfect!

My favorite quilt is a scrappy hexagon handed down from my grandmother, so I'm a big fan of hexies! This die takes the tedium out of cutting perfect patches, so sewing is "sew easy" again. I love all three sizes, and have even cut lightweight wool patches for scarves. This die is a "must have" for me.

This die has made cutting hexagons so easy that I am using hexagons much more than in the past.

I've always wanted to make a hexagon quilt, with this die it made it much less time consuming. It was even possible to sew them together with a machine instead of by hand. Perfect cut every time.

I have so much fun with this die. I love being able to use the large hexagon within a large square and also using online patterns to create even more fun designs. If you like to experiment with different sizes and shapes this is a die for you!

I have always admired hexagon quilts but had lots of difficulty cutting them using templates. Purchased this die and made a really nice quilt for my Granddaughter using 5 inch charm pack The equilateral triangles that match the die made for a perfect quilt!!! So easy to put together. I purchased the giant hexagon and will try that one next.

I wanted to make an I Spy quilt for my grandchildren and was cutting the hexs by hand with a template. I was nearly finished when my die came. The blocks I cut with it are very crisp and just perfect! The quilt top is fabulous!

I have wanted this die for a while and am so thrilled to have it. I was cutting material for my month in a quilting bee and decided to use the scraps to cut hexies that I'll use on the quilt back. In a few minutes I had 50 hexies. Uniform, perfectly cut, minimal waste. Awesome.
