Oh my, how many Hexies is that? I am hand quilting, a beautiful hexie quilt for a husband that his wife passed away 8 months ago.. 1100 Hexies. IT'S JUST BEAUTIFUL. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ADD A PHOTO.

These pictures show just about 1000 hexies, but I'm at about 2500 now -- still 1500 more to go! That's so very nice of you to make a quilt filled with such love :) I can't wait to see pictures. You can add a photo by clicking "Projects" at the very top right of the page in the orange menu bar. Then, you'll see an orange tab to "Add a project" and that will prompt you through the process. Email if you have any trouble!

Jessica - 4000 hexies for how big a quilt? Lady D how big would 1100 hexies make? Mine are 1.5 inches and I'm wondering how many I need. Is there a chart somewhere in the course?

Hi Genevi, 4000 hexies will be enough for a king size quilt with a relatively thick border. I can't remember the border width exactly, but 4400 hexies would be the entire size of a king size quilt with no border fabric. I don't know what size quilt you're making, but you can find a hexagon quilt calculator here to do the math for you:

this is really inspirational. New idea, just make a Hexie out of every fabric you use in a quilt - pretty soon a great selection to play with!
