    If you want to work with hexies consider using Inklingo. It’s a tool that lets you print cutting and sewing lines directly on your fabrics with an ordinary inkjet printer.

    Whether you piece your hexies by hand or machine, Inklingo makes the process much faster. With Inklingo you don’t need templates, there’s no basting, and you don’t have to go back to remove the papers.

    Thank you for featuring my tutorial. I would have loved to think about it before I individually cut 3300 hexagons for a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt, two years ago.
